An analysis has been conducted on the hydrostatic drive system for driving a soil bin. A comparison of the bin velocity was made between the pure inertia load and inertia plus disturbance. Also, the pressure fluctuations that are predicted are quite sensitive to the leakage values chosen. A low leakage value predicts an oscillatory pressure response. Although no feedback was employed for the velocity output, the load disturbance changed the output velocity very little.
