"I was the technician on call that night in July. I was on site about twelve minutes after the call came in. I immediately began assessing the situation and knew we were under immense time pressures," comments Robert Fruin from Hose Medic. "In order to access the hose, I had to remove the drive shaft from the PTO and remove the hose. I got to work creating a
new hydraulic hose and then replaced the damaged with the new hose that I made on site," Fruin further explains.
Fruin's quick work meant that three hours later, Costello Industries vacuum truck was up and running and the substantial fine was avoided. Customers like Costello Industries appreciate the professional dedication of Hose Medic.
