At the 2011 IFPE Show in Las Vegas, we learned of a very interesting program available to fluid power maintenance and repair specialists. The service is a web-based program called Estimator 4U and it was designed and produced by Jack Rupe and launched at the IFPE in March.
I viewed the program myself and I was impressed with the service that it provides. It does offer some standardization to hydraulic repair operations. Check it out by going to our article
and then accessing the Estimator 4U.
