Use Basic Hydraulic Training as a Tool to Fix Your Biggest Hydraulic Problem

Did you know that millions of people go to their local hardware store each year to buy a tool that none of them really want?

The tool each of them buys is a drill, and it is true - none of really want a drill. What all those people really want is holes. So they each buy a drill they don't want in order to get the holes they need.

Basic Hydraulic Training is a lot like a drill, because, let's face it - none of us really want hydraulic training. When it comes to hydraulics, what we really want includes:

  • • the smallest possible amount of hydraulic-related downtime;
  • • the best possible performance from hydraulic components & systems; and
  • • the longest possible life from hydraulic components.

The biggest problem we all face with hydraulics - the thing standing between us and what we really want from our hydraulics - is that most people who work with hydraulic equipment don't understand how hydraulics work, don't know what hydraulic components do, and don't know what it takes to get the best possible performance from hydraulic components and systems.

Odds are that your company has that problem. Symptoms of the problem include mechanics trying to fix hydraulic problems through trial and error, warranty claims being denied because of contamination, overheated hydraulic fluid, unexpected or erratic equipment behavior, and short hydraulic component life.

You can solve this problem for your company by providing your personnel with Basic Hydraulic Training. Not the "how to design hydraulic systems" kind of hydraulic training, but rather training that teaches your personnel what they need to know in order to:

  • • do a better and faster job of hydraulic troubleshooting;
  • • prevent hydraulic problems
  • • get the best possible performance from hydraulic components & systems; and
  • • get the longest possible life from hydraulic components.

Is Our Basic Hydraulic Training a Tool You Could Use to Fix Your Company's Hydraulic Problems?

Our training answers the question "what do you need to know in order to do a better & faster job of hydraulic troubleshooting, prevent hydraulic problems, get the best possible performance from your hydraulic components & systems, and get the longest possible life from your hydraulic components?"

Here's a quick way to tell if that kind of Basic Hydraulic Training is a tool you could use to help those whose responsibilities include operating, maintaining, or troubleshooting hydraulics do their jobs better... and also help your company avoid the costs of hydraulic problems.

To start with, if you asked someone to hand you torque wrench and they had no idea what kind of wrench you were talking about, you'd feel pretty confident that person was not a mechanic, wouldn't you?

Just as that one question about a torque wrench can help determine whether or not someone knows their way around a toolbox, there are questions about hydraulics that can help you determine whether or not your personnel already understand most of the information in our Basic Hydraulic Training course - including what hydraulic components do, how to prevent hydraulic problems, and how to get the best possible performance from your hydraulic systems.

Before we ask one of those questions, please imagine for a moment that you've received a brand new piece of equipment that has 3 cylinders.

If your personnel don't understand the hydraulic schematic and can't explain why only the 20 ton load is lifted, then you can help them do their jobs better by providing them with our Basic Hydraulic Training. Your personnel will do a better and faster job of hydraulic troubleshooting, will know how to get the longest possible life from your hydraulic components, and will understand how to get the best possible performance from your hydraulic components and systems. And when that happens, you'll be saving your company both time and money.

If it sounds like Basic Hydraulic Training is a tool you could use, please call me, Rob Fish, at (708) 328-6121, send an email to basicHydraulics@gmail.com, or click a Schedule Training button.

Potential Payback

After attending our 2-Day course, the maintenance personnel at a company in Decatur, Illinois used what they'd learned to make a $3,000 modification to a press that had been experiencing frequent hydraulic-related downtime. Over the course of the next 3 years, that $3,000 modification saved the company more than $105,000 in downtime and replacement component expenses.

Your savings may not be as dramatic or as easy to track, but if you're like many of our customers, your decision to provide your personnel with basic hydraulic training will provide your company with a quick payback on your investment.

Don't Wait

There are 2 reasons you should contact us right away to schedule Basic Hydraulic Training for your personnel.

The first is that you never know when a hydraulic problem will occur. When your next hydraulic problem occurs, how much time and money will your company lose as your mechanics try to fix the problem through trial and error, instead of being able to evaluate the situation, determine exactly what happened, and pinpoint the source of the problem?

The second reason is that the most common cause of hydraulic component failure is contamination. Particles of contamination smaller than a white blood cell can either wear down a hydraulic component's internal parts like sandpaper wears down a piece of wood, or chip off pieces of the internal parts as the particles of contamination act like tiny little chisels. In either case, those particles of contamination not only damage your hydraulic components, but they also generate additional contamination that circulates through your hydraulic system and can damage all of your hydraulic components.

Just like a cavity in a tooth, contamination isn't going to fix itself. And, also like a cavity in a tooth, the longer you wait to fix the problem, the more difficult (and expensive) it will be to fix the problem. The sooner your personnel learn what it takes to get the longest possible life and best possible performance from your hydraulic components, the better your chance of avoiding the costs of future hydraulic component failures.

When it comes to hydraulics, an ounce of prevention is a heck of a lot better than a pound of cure. Please contact us and schedule your training today - we'd really like to help you solve your hydraulic problems.

The Solution to the Stalling Cylinders

You'll find more information about this page's stalling cylinder situation, along with the explanation of why only the heaviest weight was lifted, on our BasicHydraulics.com/StallingCylinders web page. That page also has a couple of videos that will give you an idea of the type of graphics and animations we'll use as training aids to help your personnel understand the course material.
