As i mentioned previously, with the amount of expenditure we incur on hydraulics, this represents a significant saving.
For a start, we usually get a significant trade discount on hoses and fittings supplied from Hyphose....something that Pirtek were reluctant to do, probably because Pirtek only operate on a franchise basis limiting the freedom and control franchisee's have over pricing.
