ATTENTION all industrial hydraulic equipment owners, mechanics and technicians...

"Are you sick and tired of operating 'in the dark' and not fully understanding the hydraulic systems of the machines you work on? Or worse, are you surrounded by people who pretend to know what they're doing, but don't?

If the alternative - REAL industrial hydraulics know-how - is something you desperately see the need for, you'll be pleased to hear there's now an easy way to get it."

Read this page now to discover why this issue is such a BIG problem in industrial hydraulics and what can be done about it -- today. PLUS how you can get Brendan Casey to assist you with this for FREE.

Brendan Casey,
hydraulics author, trainer and publisher.

Dear industrial hydraulics practitioner,

Consider for a moment, one machine owner's real-life tragedy:

"I have a problem with one of our molding presses. Here's an overview of events so far:

1. The hydraulic pump was pulling the electric motor off the board.

2. We had a team of hydraulics guys out who said it is an electrical problem.

3. An electrician came out and said it is a hydraulics problem.

4. We had another guy come out and he said the pump needs to be taken off. Only to hear from him that he is unable to repair the existing pump and will quote us for a new one.

5. We then took the existing pump, in pieces, to another guy who said he can repair the pump at a reasonable cost. We gave him the go ahead. The same guy bench tested the pump in my presence up to 400 bar.

6. We then reinstalled the pump on the machine and are now not getting any functions! We were then told that it could be a valve bank problem.

7. We have stripped the two valve banks about 8 times on instructions from quite a few other 'experts' but to no avail.

We have now come to the end of our tether and are at our wits end because we haven't the faintest clue what to try next."

This situation is a complete disaster. The original problem hasn't been properly identified, the pump is in 100 pieces, and when it's finally reinstalled on the machine there's a different problem.

Machine down. Bills piling up. And no solution in sight. You can't help feeling sorry for the besieged machine owner. But as you can see, this machine owner had no shortage of help. The problem was none of this help knew what they were doing.

It's obvious that no one who was asked had the ability to drill down and really understand this machine's hydraulic system BEFORE offering an opinion.

And their ego prevents them from telling the machine owner:

"I don't know what's causing this problem. Because I don't understand this machine's hydraulic system."

So they grope and guess instead. And lose all credibility in the process. (If you're curious to know what was causing this problem, stay tuned because I will reveal what it was later).

But in fairness to everyone involved, the reality is today's industrial hydraulic machines have some of the most complex hydraulic systems you'll come across.

This is particularly true when it comes to PLC controlled machines, machines featuring serial bus digital control, variable speed pump drives and the controls devised for variable displacement pumps and motors. Semi cross-sensing, power summation, load sensing, positive and negative displacement control, constant torque and constant speed control for closed circuits, just to name a few.

This complexity explains why dedicated, hands-on, at-the-coal-face practitioners working on industrial hydraulic equipment regularly tell me they need a manual just to decode the machine manual. They do.

So for some time now, I've been paying attention to what guys like you who work on industrial hydraulic machines need to understand to succeed. And it's my observation that nobody is explaining it very well, if at all. I'm not talking about the basics. I'm talking about advanced industrial hydraulics. And the good news is, it's NOT difficult to master, because...

PRINCIPLES Are the Key To Making the Complex Simple

If you grasp just a few core principles, you can use them to chunk down and understand any industrial hydraulic system. Regardless of its complexity. Let me give you a couple of quick examples. Look at this hydraulic symbol:

It looks a bit like a relief valve doesn't it? And it is a close relative. But it's actually an opening hydrostat. It also has a cousin, the closing hydrostat. In industrial hydraulic systems, hydrostats are common and are used for a lot of different control functions. These include differential pressure limitation, load signal amplification, pre and post compensation, just to name a few.

What this means is, when you understand a hydrostat's principle of operation (they're really quite simple) none of the many functions they're used for will be a mystery to you. Plus, you'll instantly recognize them on a drawing and quickly identify the function they're carrying out.

Now look at this simple circuit:

There's nothing about this circuit you won't instantly recognize. Except perhaps the mechanical link (1) between the cylinder's piston rod and the directional control valve's sleeve (2). What this simple circuit represents is called a follow-up servo mechanism.

A follow-up servo mechanism gives the 'servo valve' its name. And it's a feature of most variable pump and motor controls. This means once you grasp the operating principle of a follow-up servo mechanism, and are able to recognize its various forms, there isn't a pump or motor control in creation you won't immediately understand.

The above examples are just two of a number of principles, which when understood, empower you to decode and understand the most complex of hydraulic systems. What to others appears to be some sort of exotic dialect out of a Star Wars movie, you'll be able to translate effortlessly on demand. And if you step up and enrol in my brand NEW industrial hydraulics training, I'll teach all of these principles to you, and much more.

So if you make your living, or a significant part of it, off the back of industrial hydraulic machines, or you plan on doing so, keep reading, because this training is designed especially for you. It's called The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics. And its purpose is to make you THE hydraulics Go-To Guy at your place of work.

This is NOT Another Book

Before I tell you all about The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics, let me tell you what it's NOT: It's NOT a text book. And it's NOT a correspondence course. It's a learning SYSTEM that combines printed materials, computer simulation and screen-capture videos.

AND it contains an entire career's worth of practical, industrial hydraulics expertise you can absorb at your own pace, at your convenience, and in the comfort of your own home, office or workshop. With my personal help as your mentor and coach along the way.

This training is divided into 16 modules. Each module begins with a review of the fundamentals, and from there moves quickly into the advanced aspects of industrial hydraulic control. Explanation of the more advanced circuits and concepts is enhanced by 59 simulation videos with a total running time of 693 minutes (11.5 hours!).

None of these videos are on YouTube, and none of them ever will be. As an example, here's the first 5 minutes from one of these videos, which explains how to eliminate water hammer by 'opening an orifice':

[NOTE: this video clip lost significant quality when it was formatted for the Web. The actual videos are sharp and clear and can be viewed in 'full-screen' mode.]

ADVANCED Hydraulics Training

Being an advanced industrial hydraulics practitioner means you've got to be comfortable reading drawings. There's no two ways about it. Which is why the first module deals with schematics and how to read them. And I reveal a simple but powerful technique you can use to decode any hydraulic circuit, regardless of how complex it may appear at first.

Plus, I explain how to interpret symbols with mechanical links, like the follow-up servo mechanism shown earlier. This is important because it empowers you to decode and understand any variable pump or motor control you'll ever come across.

From there we move through a recap of the physical laws of hydraulics. Hydraulics theory, like Pascal's Law for example, is the realm of the basic hydraulics text book. So it's NOT covered here. What is covered instead are the key laws of hydraulics that relate to the industrial hydraulic control systems explained in the subsequent modules.

Proportional and electronic control are covered in detail. As is serial bus digital control and PLC logic. And a big chunk of this training is devoted to variable speed pump drives, variable pump and motor controls, hydrostatic transmission controls and load-sensing systems. Because for the accomplished industrial hydraulics specialist, this is where the 'money' is.

As I've mentioned already, each of the 16 modules in this specialized training begins with a review of the fundamentals and moves quickly into advanced territory. Not only are most of the control circuits discussed advanced in nature, you won't find them explained in detail anywhere else. And I'm sure of it. Because every industrial hydraulics expert I know, myself included, had to figure them out for themselves, the hard way. But now you don't.

That said, The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics is not ONLY about advanced controls and circuits. Here's a sample of what else is in store:

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE A DUNCE, don't act like one. If these 10 truths about hydraulic machines aren't second nature to you, there's a good chance you'll end up with egg on your face.

How a differential pressure limiter is used to 'soft start' a hydraulic motor (video).

The difference between positive and negative displacement control. PLUS, how the wrong start of control setting can HOODWINK you into changing out a perfectly good pump.

If you are now a "B" or "B+" technician, learning this one, little-known technique will catapult you towards the ranks of "A" or even "A+" technicians, who always get first pick of the best jobs.

This training is an encyclopaedia of industrial hydraulic circuits and controls. It comprises 360 pages of printed materials and 59 simulation videos with a total running time of 11.5 hours! So it's just not possible to list here all the know-how you'll get at your fingertips. But at least now you have a good idea.

28 Years Worth Of Industrial Hydraulics Know-How

It's taken me 28 years to put all the pieces of this puzzle together on my own. If you've got quarter of a century to spare, you could probably do the same. But I don't recommend it. Not when The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics lays it all out in front of you in an easy to understand format.

I only wish this training and support was available to me when I started out. Because it would certainly have propelled me up the 'food-chain'. And here's a quick story to illustrate what I mean. Rick Sosnowski is a long-time inhabitant of 'Planet Brendan'. He's also a battle scarred and war weary heavy equipment mechanic (now retired). He sent me this little insight from the 'coal-face' recently:

"A friend of mine bought a Kobelco 300 at auction. When he put it to work, he found the functions difficult to control - all or nothing (lack of proportionality). He fought the thing for months. Mechanic after mechanic looked at it. A few tried to fix it but none succeeded. Finally, a young guy came along. It took him 30 seconds to identify the problem and 10 minutes to fix it."

The thing about this story is, if you make your living working on industrial hydraulic machines:

-- You DON'T want be the guy who scratches his head, shrugs his shoulders and walks away, hoping for an 'easier' job next time.

-- And You DON'T want to be the guy who has a go at fixing the problem but fails miserably. And leaves with that knot-in-your-stomach feeling.

-- You DO want to be the guy who is able to quickly understand the hydraulic system, zero in on the fault, and fix it. Why?

Because to the victor go the spoils...

Allow me to share the success stories of just two of my students. Both are sleeves-rolled-up, oil-on-hands, hydraulics Go-To Guys. Zac Grubb is from Ungarie on the east coast of Australia. Ryan Reed is from Kansas City in the Midwest of the United States.

After arriving on 'Planet Brendan', both of these men became serious students of mine. And both, I'm pleased to report, have recently been rewarded with significant pay rises. Zac secured a raise of $320/week ($8/hr raise). And Ryan, $400/week ($10/hr raise).

I'll think you'll agree, these are significant raises. Big enough to make a difference. Pay off the credit card. Eliminate mortgage stress. And do something nice to spoil that special someone. A vacation perhaps?

I'm not sharing this with you here as some sort of boast. Just the opposite in fact. The kudos is ALL theirs: Zac's and Ryan's. They learned it. They earned it.

The important takeaway from their success is: don't ever UNDERESTIMATE the value of real, authentic, hydraulics expertise. And the payback that comes from investing in yourself.

In fact, there are a number of ways to tell who the Go-To Guy in a firm is. He will enjoy most, if not all of the following:

  • A fat hourly rate and more overtime than he needs -- or wants most of the time.
  • A company credit card with reasonable expenses never questioned.
  • A company cell phone that he has to turn off at times, especially when he needs to sleep.
  • The keys to the newest and best service truck, which he gets to take home at night and on the weekends.
  • Regular, unsolicited job offers from other employers.
  • In the unlikely event he ever needs to ask for a pay rise, he bargains from a strong position because of his importance to the firm.
  • And if he tries to resign, he won't be let go without one or more meetings with the higher-ups, who'll be wanting to know what it will take to get him to stay.

So if you're not already the in-house Go-To Guy, why would you want to work your way up the ladder s-l-o-w-l-y when you can stand on my shoulders and 'leap-frog' your way to the top?

Anyway, now that you've got a handle on what The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics is really all about, let me explain exactly what you get:

World-Class INDUSTRIAL Hydraulics Tuition - $1300 value

I'd strongly encourage you to enrol in industrial hydraulics training like this at your local vocational college. But you can't. Such a course does not exist. Not to such an advanced level anyway.

But even if you COULD get this training from a vocational college, it wouldn't come cheap. Just last week I received a brochure from my local chapter of the Fluid Power Society advertising hydraulics courses at a local vocational college. The tuition fees ranged from $875 to $1375.

And 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 my training is the program's printed materials (360 pages) organized and presented in study-guide format. Plus, review exercises with answers are included for continuous self-assessment of your understanding.

This means you can progress at your own pace, while studying at a time and place convenient for you. This removes the stress of trying to juggle work and family commitments. Plus, you don't have to endure the time and expense of travelling to and from lectures.

Video Tutorials on USB Flash Drive - $600 value

To assist, accelerate and reinforce your learning, you also get 59 videos on USB flash drive. These videos have been prepared and recorded using state-of-the-art computer simulation software and screen-capture video technology. Here's a the first 5 minutes from one of them, which explains how two or more load-sensing pumps can be configured for constant pressure control in parallel:

Click on the > button, center of screen, to watch the video.
[NOTE: this video clip lost significant quality when it was formatted for the Web. The actual videos are sharp and clear and can be viewed in 'full-screen' mode.]

The topic of each video has been carefully selected to reinforce and build upon the key concepts presented in each module of the study guide. Furthermore, the videos are fully integrated into the course printed materials. Which means you are prompted when to watch each of the videos as you progress through the training.

The total running time of these videos is 693 minutes (11.5 hours!). And based on what hydraulics training videos with a similar running time sell for, these videos are easily worth $600 on their own.

Unlimited Question and Answer Sessions - $250 value

It's very important to me if you do decide to enrol in this training, that you succeed in becoming a high-paid industrial hydraulics expert and Go-To Guy. So the last thing I want is for you to get stuck on something you don't understand. And this is why as part of this training you get unlimited question and answer sessions with me. In other words, if you need extra help, you'll get one-on-one help from me, personally.

My consulting clients pay me $250 per hour for this type of support. And as you progress through this training, it's not unreasonable to expect you might prevail upon an hour of my time, perhaps more (and that's OK) - making this at least a $250 value.

One Month's Membership To Hydraulics Pro Club - $15 Value

Becoming a high-paid, industrial hydraulics expert is not a one-time event; it's an ongoing journey. Which is why I share my best and latest hydraulics intell and advice every month through Hydraulics Pro Club. It comprises a printed newsletter and hydraulics simulation video on CD, delivered by postal air mail each month to anywhere in the world. No hydraulics topic is off limits: design, maintenance, troubleshooting, circuits, controls, componentry and everything else in between. After your free issue, membership is $14.79/month cancellable at any time for any reason. If you're already a member, your existing membership will not be duplicated.

FREE Shipping To Anywhere in the World - $50 Value

As with all my other training programs, your investment in The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics includes FREE shipping to anywhere in the world - a $50 value. So the investment is the same no matter where you live.

PLUS -- 2 FREE BONUSES Valued At $530
But ONLY If You Respond Right Away

FREE Bonus #1
Essential Cheat Notes, Thumb Rules & Formulas For Hydraulic Technicians - $30 value

As its title suggests, this manual is a compilation of useful facts, rules, tips and formulas. It's designed to save you, the industrial hydraulics specialist, a great deal of head scratching when curly questions pop up. Like, what does NG16 mean? What's does a damping orifice do? Or, what is an acceptable drift rate for a hydraulic cylinder? The subjects covered are as diverse as volumetric expansion of hydraulic hose, to how to calculate the final viscosity of mixed oils. Many of the included 'cheat notes and thumb rules' I've collected over my 28 years in the hydraulics biz and are therefore difficult or impossible to find anywhere else.

In Essential Cheat Notes, Thumb Rules & Formulas For Hydraulic Technicians, I've pulled them all together in one convenient place. It's a $30 value, and if you're one of the FIRST 3 to invest in The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics BEFORE it's yours FREE.

FREE Bonus #2
2-Hour Tutorial on a Hydraulic System of YOUR Choice - $500 value

If you're one of the FIRST 3 to invest in The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics BEFORE , I'll roll up my sleeves and work right alongside you to help you gain a complete understanding of any hydraulic system of YOUR choice.

This is in addition to the unlimited question and answers sessions on the material contained in The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics. It means if you have a complex hydraulic machine you have to deal with at work, I'll personally help you become an EXPERT on it. The idea behind this bonus is to give you some 'quick wins' that will elevate your status to in-house Go-To Guy.

As my long list of consulting clients know, I bill my time at $250/hour. So this bonus IS a genuine $500 value - that I don't NEED to throw in. Because the unique training presented by The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics videos and study guide is by itself a sound investment for any serious industrial hydraulics practitioner or industrial equipment user (were I to present this same training in a multi-day classroom setting, nobody would gain entry for a penny less than $2000!)

Nevertheless, I am doing this because I'm VERY determined to ensure that anyone who takes immediate, positive action, absolutely succeeds in learning what they need to know to become the in-house hydraulics expert and go-to guy. PLUS, there is no 'use-by' date on this support. You can call it in whenever you need to. All at once. Or bit by bit.

HOWEVER, because time is a finite resource for all of us, I obviously can't do this for everyone. So once these 16 coaching/tutorial support slots are filled, this $500 FREE Bonus will be withdrawn - at least temporarily, and quite possibly forever. So if you want to kick your industrial hydraulics expertise up a notch, and become an in-demand and high-paid industrial hydraulics expert, AND have me personally mentor and coach you along the way, then don't fiddle around, secure your place on this training today.

RISK-FREE 100% Money Back Guarantee

You take NO RISK whatsoever by evaluating The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics. 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. There is no fine print. It's as simple as that.

Now let me break it down for you

Even though comprehensive, advanced industrial hydraulics training like this is NOT available from your local vocational college - or anywhere else for that matter, similar training of a hydraulic nature can set you back $1300 (not counting travel expenses and study materials). PLUS you get 59 videos on USB flash drive - worth at least $600. AND unlimited question and answer sessions - a $250 value. Add to this, one month's membership to Hydraulics Pro Club, and FREE shipping - to anywhere in the world - $65 value. PLUS, Essential Cheat Notes, Thumb Rules & Formulas For Hydraulic Technicians, AND the one-on-one coaching/tutorial support on a hydraulic system of your choice, together worth $530 for your fast response, and that comes to $2,745.00 total.

I have great news for you ...

You DO NOT have to pay $2,745.00 to become a high-paid and in-demand industrial hydraulics expert and Go-To Guy. Nor do you need to spend 28 years trying to figure this out for yourself (like I did!). I must be going soft in my old age, because if you're one of the FIRST 3 to respond before midnight this I'm willing to give all this away to you for only $497.

So basically, I just gave you a $2,248.00 discount on what it would cost you if you COULD get all this industrial hydraulics training and support elsewhere. (And you can't).

OR, if you're an industrial hydraulic equipment owner or user and you wanna slice 'n dice it another way: How much hydraulics assistance can you get elsewhere for $497? On a one-time only basis, not a lot. On an ongoing basis, none at all.

Why this makes sense today:

  1. You'll be working with me. Nobody else. I've been a Go-To Guy most of my working life. I know what it takes to get there. And I know what it takes to stay there.

  2. You can pour 55-gallon drums of sweat into getting there on your own. But doing it the hard and slow way means years of extra income you could have had, gone forever. So having me as your mentor and coach pays for itself. It's a no brainer.

  3. You CAN do this. I'm considered an expert in this field by many. And I can tell you this level of understanding is no more beyond your reach than it was mine. In fact, Earl Nightingale once suggested you can become an expert in just about anything by dedicating one hour a day for as little as a year to no more than three. And this program is dedicated to doing it faster than that.

As attractive as this offer is, experience tells me that only about 1 out of every 10 who receive it will respond. Although that's OK with me from a business standpoint, it still bothers me personally.

Because I know how much mechanics, millwrights, fitters, installers, technicians, engineers and industrial hydraulic equipment users will benefit from this training. 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."

With this in mind, I hate the thought of someone not getting this training because of some error or omission in my explanation. Which is why I've wracked my brain to come up with possible reasons that might be holding you back.

Here they are:

"I don't know much about hydraulics"

You don't need extensive hydraulics know-how to benefit from The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics. If you DO have some hydraulics knowledge and/or exposure to industrial hydraulic equipment - great, you'll hit the ground running. But it's certainly NOT an essential requirement because each module begins with a review of the fundamentals, upon which the more advanced concepts are built.

"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 training. You DO need a computer (PC or Mac) to watch the 59 tutorial videos which are an integral part of this training. But this only requires plugging a USB flash drive into your computer.

"Will the videos playback on my Apple Mac?"


"Will I get a diploma or certificate when I complete the training?"

Yes. If you complete and turn-in your answers to the review questions at the end of each module, you will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.

"I prefer to work in Metric rather than US units (or vice versa)"

Both US and Metric units are used throughout this training (it's good to be familiar with both). But this isn't a big issue either way since there's virtually no calculations required.

"I'm a long time member of Hydraulics Pro Club. Will I notice duplication of content?"

If you've been a member of Hydraulics Pro Club since it began in March 2009, then some of the subject matter in this training will not be entirely new to you. But this training also contains a lot of material that's never been published in Hydraulics Pro Club. And all of it has been combined in a logical, easy to understand format not available anywhere else. It means if you are a Hydraulics Pro Club member of many years standing, you'll get more out this training more quickly, than a candidate who comes to it without the benefit of such prior learning.

"I already have a stack of books about hydraulics"

The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics is NOT a book. It's a training program which combines printed materials, computer simulation and screen-capture videos, with one-on-one mentoring support from me. And besides, there is NO book that explains all of the advanced industrial control concepts covered by this training. Believe me, I've looked far and wide.

"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"

"I almost balked at the price, but within a matter of months I had more confidence than I could believe. The knowledge of how to attack any hydraulic problem with your efficient methods had me outshine a number of more experienced mechanics and technicians. This upset some of the older tradesmen. So I now keep the methods I learnt from you low key. Your information and lessons are the most powerful tools in my arsenal."

Let's say you demonstrate to your boss your newly acquired hydraulics expertise and he gives you a raise of (only) $100 per week. Then you'll recover your entire investment in less than 5 weeks.

And if you think this kind of raise is unrealistic, think again. As I explained earlier, one of my students secured a raise of $320/week ($8/hr raise). And another, $400/week ($10/hr raise). So don't ever underestimate the value of real, authentic, hydraulics expertise. And the payback that comes from investing in yourself. These two students recovered their investment in less than two weeks.

If on the other hand you're a hydraulic equipment owner, you only have to use The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics to help you solve just one problem and you'll likely recover your entire investment in full.

PLUS - you can spread the investment over 3 months - with our optional Equalizer Payment Plan, if you wish.

An Investment In Success

About that problem with the molding press I described earlier. It was caused by a blocked orifice. But without a detailed understanding of the machine's hydraulic control system, you'd be hard pressed to even suspect this as a possible cause. Not until most of the hydraulic components had been replaced through guesswork anyway.

To the owner of this machine, someone (anyone!) who has the ability to quickly understand this machine's control system and then zero in on the cause of this type of fault, is worth his weight in gold.

The good news is this is a level of skill anyone can master. Anyone who wants to that is.

So, add this valuable skill to YOUR resume today.

Yours for better hydraulics knowledge,

P.S. #1. It's important to note that The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics may be tax deductible. Ask your tax advisor.

P.S. #2. If you don't get in on this industrial hydraulics training today, what WILL you do the next time you have a hydraulic problem to deal with? Will you openly admit you can't solve it because you don't understand the machine's hydraulic system? (This is probably the best strategy.) Or will you grope and guess, replacing one component after another until (hopefully) the problem goes away? (As you now know, this is a high risk strategy.)

The Definitive Guide to Industrial Hydraulics puts YOU in charge of the process. So don't put this off, respond now, before the deadline for this special offer expires this (if not before).
