Section XVI. CRANE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
Each hydraulic controller lever is mechanically
connected to a master cylinder. Each master cylinder is
connected to a hydraulic cylinder by a hydraulic line,
and in turn each cylinder is connected to a clutch by a
mechanical linkage. Movement of a lever actuates the
position in the corresponding cylinder. Actuation of a
piston in the cylinder causes hydraulic pressure in the
connecting line and cylinder. As a result, a piston in the
cylinder is actuated and in turn actuates the clutch
through cylinder linkage. When pressure is released, a
return spring causes the cylinder piston to return to its
normal position, and fluid is returned through the
connecting line to the master cylinder.
