Just like anything mechanical worth having, maintenance is necessary to keep things running smoothly, even on a reliable machine like the SUTHERLAND® 2000™ Rub Tester. Our machines are durable, sure, but to keep them going for years to come, Danilee Co., LLC recommends regular service for repairs, cleanings, and calibrations.
