Don't expect 20 Tons

"Maybe I just don't know presses well enough but I had serious problems with this product. When I first got it, the pump had leaked and did not work. Torin sent me a new pump...That one was damaged and then I found the ram was leaking. So they sent me a new one of both (which seems to be all their support will do). I now have three pumps, a new ram, and when I get the press up to 15 tons it leaks out oil...under 15 it seems okay. Sick of trying to get a set-up in which oil wont leak at higher pressure and when I ask for advice, their support doesn't know the product well enough to give any so I will probably try to get another press rated for 30 or 35 with hope I can get 20-25 without leaking. I will still use this for lower ton pressing."

"delivery to the store was quick, the assembly was easy, and it is user frendly, the gage helps you to know just where you are at with the preasure, and having the pump on the side vs the old bottle jack makes opeating easier."

"I purchased this for my garage and am very happy with the unit. It was easy to assemble and performs well. I lilke having the pump on the side as oppsed to other presses that use the bottle jack on top. The gauge is really a nice feature too. For the price you cant beat it."
