Ours is a hydraulic pump which drives the power steering and the fan.

Have a large hydraulic oil reservoir with filters that needs maintenance occasionally.

I had thought this was the normal CC setup until the @2005 Cat models were introduced.

So your hydraulic pump is belt driven?

this is the case on mine. not only the main hydraulic reservoir with 3 filters stacked inside located in the engine compartment, there is a smaller rectangular shaped reservoir in the first compartment at driver side, actually right below the driver chair. when its level is low, the front wheels/steering sways.

Still not answered: Are your hydraulic pumps belt driven?

The small rectangular shaped reservoir in the first compartment on the driver's side should be the HWH reservoir for the slide. If you have a slide, that reservoir has nothing to due with the fan/steering hydraulics. They are not connected.

Mine is not run by a belt.

It is "an engine mounted hydraulic pump" per the Gillig manual.

I guess I never made the connection that it is the PTO device.

I still learn something everyday. Some of it is essential.
