This construction set teaches the basics of hydraulics through five instructional models. The fischertechnik hydraulic system is operated with water, demonstrating how force can be transmitted via liquid media. Here is an example of how the system works: A manually operated control cylinder presses the water into the working cylinder through hoses. The working cylinder extends, moving the digger arm, or the shovel on the powerful crawler excavator. This allows builders to control three different excavator movements hydraulically. Includes access to downloadable teaching and activity materials from the fischertechnik eLearning Portal.
