There are multiple variable piston pumps that can be found on the market that were designed years ago and since that time there has been very few modifications made to the design. When Parker Hannifin decided to make a new line of variable piston pumps for the mobile market, it was quite true that one of the best ways to provide the best products for our clients was to first listen to their needs and understand the markets.
This required that we placed our hands on the most recent requirements and move forward with the development of these units. Instead of starting the design work at the drawing board, we went and spoke with our customers, getting their feedback on what are the new characteristics that they needed in a new design. Soon the most important requirements were obvious. Clients were in search of pumps that were inexpensive and simple to install.
