WANTED: Your services as an in-demand and highly paid hydraulics specialist...
They Laughed When He Said He Could Fix It ...
The shift mechanic was scratching his head.
The production line had just gone down for the third time in as many hours.
To the amazement of all his buddies on the maintenance crew, Jim van Dooren confidently strode over to where the drawings were laid out.
"Does he know what he's doing?" Jim heard the foreman whisper to the shift mechanic.
"Hell, no!" the shift mechanic replied "He hasn't been here long enough. And besides, the hydraulics on this system are real complicated."
Jim decided to make the most of the situation. With one hand clasping his chin in mock concentration, he scanned the drawings for clues.
The shift mechanic was right. This was a complex hydraulic system.
But like someone fluent in a second language, the schematic diagram was making perfect sense to him.
Jim took the heat-gun from his pocket and hurried over to the main valve manifold.
"What do you think, Einstein?" called a voice from behind.
"Can - he - fix - it?" sang out another, and the crowd of onlookers rocked with laughter.
But then Jim said...
"I Know What the Problem Is!"
The laughter died on their lips. And a stunned silence fell over the group.
Jim's sceptical audience watched in quiet fascination, when seemingly at random, he began to take the cover off one of the logic elements.
Then turning to the electrician Jim asked, "Do you have a pair of rat-nose pliers on you?"
The electrician obliged.
Using the borrowed pliers like a surgeon's tweezers, Jim carefully removed a piece of metal and held it up for all to see.
"Probably from a previous pump failure" he explained.
A Complete Triumph!
Someone clapped and then the whole crew broke into spontaneous applause.
A couple of the guys even pounded Jim on the back.
One of them was the production foreman. "Why didn't you tell us you were a hydraulics expert?" he asked.
Things sure did change for Jim after that.
He became the hydraulics 'go-to guy' for the entire plant.
And now, 12 month's later, it's HIS name stuck on the door of the maintenance supervisor's office.
Show 'em tail-lights, Jim. That's what I reckon.
Because I too can recall many occasions over the years when I've been 'put to the test' over a hydraulics problem.
And just like in Jim's story, where others have failed, the expectation is you will too.
So think of the look on their faces as they lay the problem out in front of you... fully expecting you to stumble.
And how quickly their faces change when you zero in on the problem.
Their doubt turns to respect.
You're always welcome back.
You're always sought after.
AND, as Jim found out for himself, you're always handsomely rewarded.
Why Is Hydraulics Know-How So Highly Regarded?
Because it's rare as hen's teeth. And getting harder to find. According to a recent report published by the International Fluid Power Society:
A similar situation exists worldwide - at both degree AND trade level.
In other words, it's a GREAT time to be skilled in hydraulics.
The best time to be a nurse is when there's a shortage of nurses. And the best time to be a hydraulics pro is when they're like hen's teeth.
So if you'd like to captialize on this situation by becoming an in-demand hydraulics specialist, keep reading because...

And even though some of the above are covered in books you may have seen or read...
In fact, it's not really a book at all. Hydraulics Made Easy is unique because it incorporates computer simulation screen-shots and screen-capture videos to enhance your learning.
For example, consider pulsation dampening - which is one of the applications for a hydraulic accumulator:
First we explain the design and function of the component - in this case, a bladder-type accumulator...
Next, we show and explain a simulation screen-shot of the problem (notice the pulsating pressure in BOTH the pump and cylinder)...
Then, we show you a simulation VIDEO explaining how the problem is solved - in this case, by the installation of an accumulator (notice that the accumulator doesn't fix pump pulsation, but it stops it from being transferred to the cylinder).
And this is just one example. You're gonna get a truck-load of knowledge from Hydraulics Made Easy. The kind of knowledge that'll make you the envy of others?
If you DO have solid hydraulics know-how - which isn't as common as you might think, you ARE respected and rewarded. I can think of many occasions over the years when I've been 'put to the test' over a hydraulics problem.
Where others have failed, the expectation is you will too. So think of the look on their faces as they lay the problem out in front of you... fully expecting you to stumble. And how quickly their faces change when you zero in on the cause of the problem.
Their doubt turns to respect. You're always welcome back. You're always sought after. You're always handsomely rewarded.
And if you only ever make one investment in YOUR hydraulics know-how, Hydraulics Made Easy should be it.
So now that you've got an idea of what it covers, and the value of the knowledge you'll gain, let me explain exactly what you get:
Only last month I was talking to one of my Inside Hydraulics newsletter members who has just completed a basic hydraulics course presented by a vocational training provider. So I asked him how much he spent on tuition fees.
He told me it cost him $890, and he went on to explain how lucky he was to have a company vehicle - otherwise he'd have had significant travel expenses on top. As his example shows, you can easily spend $1,000 getting this type of training.
But that's not the end of it. I've done a lot of part-time study while working full-time. And it can be real stressful trying to attend lectures - or worse still, missing them, when you've got urgent work or family issues to deal with.
The foundation of our system is the course written materials (348 pages) organized and presented in 'study guide' format. Revision questions with answers are also included for continuous self-assessment.
Which means you can progress at your own pace, studying at a time and place convenient for you. This removes the stress of trying to juggle work and family commitments. And you save yourself the time and expense of travelling to and from lectures.
To assist and accelerate your learning, you also get 12 videos on CD-ROM. These videos have been prepared and recorded using state-of-the-art computer simulation software and screen-capture video technology. Here's a short clip from one of them covering closed circuit, hydrostatic transmissions:
The topic of each video has been carefully selected to reinforce and build upon the key concepts presented in each section of the study guide. Furthermore, the videos are fully integrated into the course written materials, which means you are prompted when to watch each of the videos as you progress through the course.
The total running time of these videos is 129 minutes. And based on what hydraulics training videos with a similar running time sell for - these videos are easily worth $200 on their own.
No doubt about it, Marian Tumarkin is THE smartest hydraulics guy I've ever come across. And I wish someone of his calibre was accessible to me when I started in this business. A lucky few have been fortunate enough to be mentored by such an experienced professional and gifted teacher.
"I had the pleasure of being one of Dr Tumarkin's students a couple of years ago at Swinburne University - what a great guy. He's a great teacher... the University lost a real source of expert knowledge when he left."
And with Hydraulics Made Easy, you get unlimited access to Dr Tumarkin by email. The enormous benefit of having Marian as your mentor, is when you get stuck on something you just can't figure out, there's no need to sweat. Expert help is at hand.
These days Marian doesn't get out of bed for less than $125 per hour - and I don't blame him. As you progress through this program, it's not unreasonable that you'll prevail upon two hours of his time (maybe more) - making this a $250 value.
As you can see already, Hydraulics Made Easy would be an absolute bargain at only $1,000. But I'm NOT asking anything like that - because I want this knowledge to be affordable for as many as possible. And I'm not finished yet ...
As with all my products, the price of Hydraulics Made Easy includes FREE shipping to anywhere in the world - a $40 value. So the price is the same no matter where you live.
This is a brand NEW product and so I want to give it a BIG push out of the starting gate. Which is why, if you're one of the FIRST 49 to respond before I'm going to give you another 15 tutorial videos on CD. These videos have been prepared and recorded using state-of-the-art, computer simulation software and screen-capture video technology.
I recorded these videos for Hydraulics Pro Club, my top-level membership program for the serious student of hydraulics. They cover a range of important hydraulic principles and circuits - which are all relevant to, and expand upon, the contents of Hydraulics Made Easy.
The total running time of theses videos is 241 minutes. And based on what hydraulics training videos with a similar running time sell for - these videos are easily worth $400 by themselves. PLUS--they come with their own, separate 60-page study guide - valued at $37.
AND if you're one of the FIRST 49 to respond before midnight this they're yours - FREE!
So ... I bet you're wondering how much all this knowledge, tools and resources is going to cost you?
First, let me remind you of the guarantee that comes with ALL my products:
You take NO RISK whatsoever by evaluating Hydraulics Made Easy. Because if in the unlikely event you're not absolutely delighted for any reason - or no reason at all, I'll cheerfully refund your entire investment in full. No questions asked.
PLUS - this is a lifetime guarantee. You can return it next month, next year or ten years from now. Golly? what could be fairer than that?
Basic hydraulics training at a vocational institute could set you back $900 (not counting travel expenses and study materials). Then you get 12 simulation videos on CD - worth $200. Plus there's the unlimited question and answer sessions with Dr Marian Tumarkin - another $250 value. Add to this FREE shipping - to anywhere in the world - a $40 value... AND the additional 15 simulation videos on CD, with study-guide - together worth $437, for your fast response, and that comes to $1,827.00 total.
You DO NOT need to pay $1,827.00 to insulate yourself from unemployment and secure a high-paid career like I did, by becoming a hydraulics specialist. I may be crazy, but if you're one of the FIRST 49 to respond before midnight this I'm willing to give all this away to you for ONLY $297.00.
So basically, I just gave you a $1,530.00 discount on what it would cost you if you went out and got all this on your own.
"I work for a company that makes hydraulic top drives for drilling rigs. We have a lot of new people in our company who come out to the field for training. When I start going through the schematics and walking around the unit and explaining how the system operates the trainee's eyes go blank. But when I open Hydraulics Made Easy and show them how the parts work and then go back to the top drive, everything starts to make sense for the trainees. Even I always learn something new when I use Hydraulics Made Easy."
As attractive as this offer is, experience tells me that only about 1 out of every 10 people who receive it will respond. Although that's OK with me from a business standpoint, it still bothers me personally.
You see, I know how much fitters, mechanics, technicians, engineers and hydraulic equipment users will benefit from this knowledge. I read their emails; I talk to them on the phone; I meet them personally at seminars, and hundreds each year tell me that:
"A lack of specialist knowledge is our BIGGEST hydraulics problem."
Because of this, I hate the thought of someone not getting this knowledge because of some error or omission in my explanation. Which is why I've racked my brains to come up with possible reasons that might be holding you back.
Here they are:
"I don't know anything about hydraulics"
You don't need to. Hydraulics Made Easy assumes no prior knowledge. If you DO have some hydraulics knowledge and/or exposure to hydraulic equipment - great, you'll hit the ground running. But it's certainly NOT required.
"My computer skills aren't very good"
The very fact that you're reading this tells me you already have the necessary computer skills for this course. You DO need a computer (PC or Mac) to watch the 27 tutorial videos included with Hydraulics Made Easy. But this only requires dropping a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive. And my 7-year-old can do that.
"Will the videos playback on my Apple Mac?"
"Will I get a diploma or certificate when I complete the program?"
Yes. If you complete and turn-in the review questions at the end of each section, you will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.
"I prefer to work in Metric rather than US units (or vice versa)"
Everything is in both US and Metric units. So where any calculations are explained you get detailed instructions in both US and Metric units. Same goes with the simulation screen shots and videos.
"I'm mainly interested in mobile hydraulic equipment rather than industrial (or vice versa)"
Hydraulics Made Easy covers the components and circuits used in both mobile and industrial hydraulic equipment today.
"I already have a stack of books about hydraulics"
Hydraulics Made Easy is NOT a book. It's a learning system which combines printed materials, computer simulation and screen-capture videos. And besides, you can NEVER have too much information about hydraulics.
"I live beyond Siberia, so shipping will be too expensive"
Worldwide shipping is included, so the price is the same no matter where in the world you live.
"It looks like a great deal, but I'm not sure I can afford it right now"
Let's say for example, you spend 2 hours a week studying this material for 50 weeks - which wouldn't be unreasonable (remember you progress at a pace which suits you). That works out to around six bucks a week. And you don't have to get much of a pay raise to get that back. PLUS - you can spread the investment over three months - with our optional Equalizer Payment Plan.
About the gentleman I mentioned at the beginning of this letter; here's how his story ended:
"How things changed for me after that. I became the hydraulics 'go-to guy' for the entire plant. And now, 12 month's later, it's MY name everyone sees on the door of the Maintenance Supervisor's office!"
Likewise, learning hydraulics has rewarded me with an interesting and high-paid career (and insulated me from the despair of unemployment for 22 years).
It's been the KEY to my success.
It can be the key to YOURS too.
So start today, with Hydraulics Made Easy.
Yours for better hydraulics knowledge,
Author and Publisher
P.S. It's important to note that Hydraulics Made Easy may be tax deductible. Ask your tax advisor.
P.P.S. If you take any hundred people at the start of their working careers and follow them for 40 years until they reach retirement age, here's what you'll find - according to the Social Security Administration: Only 1 will be wealthy; 4 will be financially secure; 5 will continue working, not because they want to, but because they have to; 36 will be dead; and 54 will be dead broke - dependent on their meager Social Security checks, relatives, even charity for a minimum standard of living. That's 5% successful, 95% unsuccessful. Which group do you wanna be in? Well don't wait any longer, respond now, before the deadline for this special offer expires this (if not before).
