In some cases, the motor and pump are set up in a direct drive configuration. In others, they are connected using an indirect drive. Here’s a look at each drive type.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/hydraulics/what-s-difference-between-direct-and-indirect-drives-hydraulic-pumps" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/hydraulics/what-s-difference-between-direct-and-indirect-drives-hydraulic-pumps#comments What's the Difference Between...
