In mobile hydraulics, where is the filter located?

On a mobile hydraulic system, the filter or filters can be located in several different areas based on the system’s design and intended use. The most common locations are:
Suction side – a strainer on the end of the pick-up line in the reservoir or a filter in the line between the reservoir and the hydraulic pump.
PRESSURE SIDE – a filter in the line between the hydraulic pump and the rest of the system.
RETURN SIDE – a filter in the fluid return line from the actuator going back to the reservoir.
OFF-LINE – an entire filtration system that is added on to filter the fluid in the reservoir independently from any other filters in the system. This is sometimes referred to as a kidney loop system.
