Happy new year, been busy a while...

Pump & motor question. I'm drawing up a new hydraulic snow-blower, I'm just guessing that the pump/motor type should be "axial piston". I see some variable displacement ones but don't really understand what the difference MEANS in this case. I'd have a diesel run the pump (12 cu-in 3000rpm & 300 nominal hp) and a motor power the fan (36 cu-in nominal 1200rpm 180hp). This provides for plenty of losses so the output would be bulletproof, speed woulf be giverned my the engine rpm in a closed system. Does ant of this sound unreal or impossible? I'm just getting my feet wet :-)

Hi and welcome to the site. This site has been having tecnical issues. The person that has been running it hs not updated the program and apparently alot of the people that have been on here for years are leaving. You may want to go the extra step and check out the forum list to see what and who is active.
I would look at the commercial units that are out there. There are several options. What i was trying to build years ago for my skid loader. Take a 3 point blower and convert it over to direct hydro and make a electric motor turn the discharge. One other guy went and did hydro to chain drive gearbox.
