Format: Paperback
I've been in the millwright trade since 1987 and I find this book to be very informative. The book goes into great detail about the principles of fluid power. It is comprehensive as it includes all makes and styles of pumps that are on the market. I recommend this book to be part of any tradesman's resources.

Good general pump book May 22 2009
By Dan G - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book gives a very good general overview of pumps and hydraulics. It has a lot of great diagrams and photos to aid in explaining the topics and their applications. If you want to understand more than just a pump curve or cut sheet and further understand the components and technical aspects of what you spec as a designer or engineer, I would recommend this book.
