Cylinder Repair

In August 2018, Scotty’s Hydraulic Service based in Plymouth IN, became a division of River Bend Hose Specialty. This acquisition expanded our capabilities with machining, and rebuilding of cylinders, pumps, valves, motors, accumulators, filters, oil coolers, power units, and many other components used within manufacturing and mobile equipment needs. On-site service is available for equipment too large for transport, and those that may require diagnostic testing.
