Our company is fully equipped to repair any hydraulic breakdown the industry can offer in the  Municipalities, Mining Industries, Earthmoving Equipment, Water Authorities, Civil Engineering, Construction Industry, Agricultural, Refuse Equipment, Power Stations and any other field not already mentioned.

Sophisticated test benches ensure that all repairs to pumps, motors, valves and auxiliary equipment comply with OEM specifications.  All replacement components are sourced from the OEM sector, ensuring that all repairs leaving our workshop conforming to the required specifications.

We make use of very high-tech equipment to test various parts of a hydraulic system. Each Pump, Motor, Directional Control Valve and Hydraulic Cylinder has its own test bench that is fitted with heaters and coolers to heat-up or cool-down the oil to simulate true working temperatures of the machine.  The different horsepower motor’s drive the pumps at the correct R.P.M. and torque to ensure optimal test operation.
