In this 3-minute video, Brendan Casey explains why the charge pump in a hydrostatic transmission is pure heat load - and the reason why one of his newsletter members blew $10,000 on an unnecessary pump overhaul!
At Last ... Brendan Casey - THE #1 authority on hydraulic equipment maintenance and reliability, reveals ...
How to Get Thousands of Hours in Extra Service Life From Your Hydraulic Equipment, Eliminate Unnecessary Breakdowns, Reduce Unscheduled Downtime and Slash Thousands of $$$$ Off Your Operating Costs - GUARANTEED!
Dear Hydraulics User,
Hydraulic components are expensive, right?
So when you don't get maximum mileage from them it hurts your bottom line.
If you're an owner-operator, it hurts your wallet directly.
If you're a manager or supervisor, it hurts your budget - and maybe even your performance bonus.
But the fact is ...
More than 70% of spare parts sold for hydraulic equipment are replacements for components that have failed prematurely ...
I uncovered this startling fact while conducting research for my best-selling book, Insider Secrets to Hydraulics. And that's not all. I also discovered that the cause of 90% of these premature failures is improper maintenance.
So when you consider how big the spare parts business is, you realize poor maintenance practices are ...
Costing hydraulic equipment users billions of $$$ every year.
And most of my colleagues agree. Here's what a couple have said:
That's the bad news. But the GOOD news is ...
These costly failures can be avoided -- if you know how!
Trouble is, the information you need to prevent premature failures and maximize the service life of your hydraulic equipment isn't widely available. It's not that it's rocket science - far from it. But you won't find it in the machine manual and it's not taught in everyday, how-it-works, hydraulics classes.
As a consequence, most owners, operators, mechanics, technicians and engineers are clueless when it comes to hydraulic equipment maintenance. And I'm not alone in this view:
But it's not their fault! They just haven't been given the opportunity to learn.
Who am I and why should you listen to me?
My name is Brendan Casey and I've spent the better part of 20 years working in and running hydraulic repair shops, in other words, rebuilding hydraulic components. During this time I kept seeing the same pattern:
For as long as there are hydraulic equipment owners, mechanics and maintenance people out there who believe hydraulic equipment doesn't require any special kind of attention, this vicious circle will continue.
Over the past 30 years, the performance, sophistication and operating pressures of hydraulic equipment have increased significantly. This is particularly true in the case of mobile hydraulic equipment.
As a result, modern hydraulic equipment is not only more expensive to fix when it breaks, proactive maintenance is imperative to maximize service life and minimize operating costs.
It's not realistic to expect a hydraulic machine to run for 10,000 hours, without doing anything more than changing the filters, and not have any problems.
In an effort to bridge the knowledge gap on what needs to be done to get maximum life from hydraulic equipment, I've written two books on the subject: Insider Secrets to Hydraulics and Preventing Hydraulic Failures. Here's a sample of what's been said about them:
In addition, I write a regular column for Machinery Lubrication magazine, which is read by 37,583 maintenance and reliability professionals in North America and Europe.
My technical articles are also regularly published in InMotion magazine, which is read by 8,683 fluid power professionals in Australia and New Zealand.
I've presented technical papers and workshops at international conferences such as Lubrication Excellence 2004 (USA), National Conference on Fluid Power 2005 (USA) and Lubrication Excellence 2005 and Reliability World 2005 (USA).
And I've been hired by my local University to present hydraulic equipment maintenance training.
As you've probably gathered, the maintenance and reliability of hydraulic equipment is a subject I'm passionate about and one I'm considered by my peers to be a leading authority on.
But I also understand there's only so much you can get out of reading a book. Which is why I presented a series of one-day seminars in the US and Australia during 2007 - to show hydraulic equipment users like you …
How to save money and reduce downtime by preventing unnecessary hydraulic equipment breakdowns.
Even though these seminars were a great success, I have no plans to do another. Why? Well as much as I enjoy presenting my time-tested and proven 'blueprint' for reducing hydraulic equipment operating costs to a room full of people, the truth is I don't travel well these days.
Being able to share my knowledge is a pleasure and a privilege. The travelling is a real chore.
And because only a very small percentage of the 29,831 hydraulics users from all over the world who read my Inside Hydraulics newsletter could possibly attend one of these live events - and chances are you weren't one of them - I figured there must be a better way to make this knowledge available to everyone who needs it.
So I had it recorded and burnt onto 4 DVDs you can watch at your leisure and in the comfort of your own home or office.
No matter what type of hydraulic equipment you own, operate, repair or maintain, this is one 'movie' you can't afford to miss. You'll learn what every hydraulic equipment user ought to know ... that most mechanics DON'T!
Here's just a short 'preview':
PLUS - I also show you how to set-up and optimize a preventative maintenance program for hydraulic equipment.
By the end of the 'film', you and your maintenance people will have a step-by-step action plan for reducing the operating cost of your hydraulic equipment.
So what's the price of admission? In many ways, this is the wrong question to ask. The question you should be asking is …
How much will it cost YOU if you DON'T watch this 'film'?
On that question, here's an eye-opening case study for you:
As I've said already, it's not rocket science - far from it. But the problem for my client was the information they needed to prevent this maintenance disaster was not readily available to them.
The principles and procedures I put in place to prevent a reoccurrence of the failures described above, are the same ones I walk you through, step-by-step when you watch my Hydraulic Breakdown Prevention Blueprint on DVD.
Had my client had this information and applied it diligently in the beginning, they could have saved themselves more than $70,000 - and a lot of downtime and aggravation.
How much would you be prepared to spend to save yourself $70,000, $10,000 or even just a couple of grand? As you can see from this case study, an investment of a few hundred bucks is very easy to justify - even if you don't have a lot of hydraulic equipment.
But just in case you're someone who needs to justify your investment with an 'apples to apples' comparison, consider this:
The people who attended these seminars paid $600 and had to take a day off work. Many travelled considerable distances by air or road and stayed overnight in hotels. So they had travel, meal and accommodation expenses on top.
It's fair to say that attending the event "live" was at least a $1,000 commitment for most. Yet everyone who attended thought it was money well spent.
And this is why your investment of only $397 for these DVDs is such a bargain. That's a saving of at least $600 on what it would have cost you to attend and less than a drum of good quality hydraulic oil.
PLUS - as I've already explained, you only need to learn one thing that solves a problem or prevents a failure and you've recovered this modest investment - by a large multiple.
Here's what you get:
But that's not all ...
A $250 Bonus for Fast Response
If you respond before you'll also get a one-hour email/skype/phone consult with me. What's the benefit of this? Well, for you to get maximum value from this program, you have to apply what you learn. This FREE bonus is designed to assist you in that process.
If you have any questions after watching the DVDs or issues arise down the track, you can "pick my brains" - for no charge. I routinely charge $250 per hour for advice on maintenance and reliability matters, so this IS a $250 value.
But frankly, I'd be surprised if during this consult I can't point out something that will more than save you the cost of your entire investment in this program. And it's yours FREE - but only if you act before midnight, this . Obviously, I can't do this for everyone - so hesitate and you'll miss out.
How can you turn down an offer like this?
Just in case you're still not convinced, let's go over some of the reasons which might be holding you back:
Take, as an example, a maintenance manager for a large open-cut mine who attended one of my seminars. During the day he explained that his mine had six hydraulic shovels. Each of these shovels has six hydraulic return filter elements costing $2,500 each and they're changed every 2,000 hours - based on the OEM's recommendation. Because these machines work at least 6,000 hours per year his mine was spending over a quarter of a million dollars annually - on these return filters alone!
I explained that in my world, we change this type of component 'on condition' NOT on hours in service. And I showed him (and the rest of the group) how. It's too early to give you the exact numbers, but it looks like this bit of advice alone will payback the investment he made to attend more than twenty times.
Of course, the return YOU get depends on the amount and type of hydraulic equipment you operate, but with my "You Must Save $2,000 or its FREE Guarantee" if you don't get at least a 5 times return - you won't pay a penny.
Frankly, if you have any kind of responsibility for hydraulic equipment at all, I can't think of any good reason why you wouldn't grab these DVDs today:
What could be fairer than that?
So don't wait - act now to claim your fast response bonus valued at $250 and start saving on your hydraulic equipment operating costs.
Yours for better hydraulics knowledge,
P.S. #1 Like everyone else on the supply side of the hydraulics industry I make a hellava lot more from maintenance failures than I do from failure prevention. My fee for sorting out the maintenance disaster described in the above case study ran to five figures. And I get offered more of this type of work than I can take on. I don't tell you this to brag, but to make the point that I really don't mind if you sit on your hands. But understand the price of doing nothing is much, much higher than taking action today.
P.S. #2 Don't forget, by responding right away, you get a FREE one-hour consult with me - valued at $250 and I'd be surprised if during this consult I can't point to something which will more than save you the cost of your entire investment in this program. But be quick, because I can't do this for everyone.
P.S. #3 And remember, as Benjamin Franklin once said: "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
