Abstract: Since the phases of pinions 23, 25 and a pinion 24 are deviated by 180 degree, the pinions 23, 25 are acted with the engaging force which is reverse in a working direction to the engaging force of the pinion 24 and is half in the value. At this time since distances between a center 27a in the gear width of the pinion 24 and centers 26a, 28a in the gear width of the pinions 23, 25 are substantially equal, the engaging forces in the pinions 24 and 23, 25 are zero in resultant force and moment of rotation, and balanced.
Abstract: If a first control valve 71 is arranged so as to change between a flow position A and a throttling position C by a fluid for switching purpose guided through a pilot channel 77, the flow area of a first intermediate channel can be changed in two steps. As a result, the injection-valve opening pressure and time of a first relief valve 48 change between two types of values, whereby the physical shock occurring when a crawler vehicle stops can be switched between two types of shock.
