Swashplate Pumps


Swashplate hydraulic pumps have a rotating cylinder containing pistons. A spring pushes the pistons against a stationary swash plate, which sits at an angle to the cylinder. The pistons suck in fluid during half a revolution and push fluid out during the other half. The greater the slant the further the pump pistons move and the more fluid they transfer.
