100 Holes + 1 Day = Complete

Mike Ford & Mapledurham golf club Captain, Frank O’Neill woke up at the crack of dawn Saturday 16th June to start their epic task. 100 holes of golf in one day.

By 9am the duo had already completed 36 holes. By 5.15pm it was all over.

100 holes done within 13 hours.

The pair had walked further than the London Marathon while pulling along their golf trolleys. All in aid of Children with Cancer.

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored already and there is still time to sponsor by clicking here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/1898challenge


More power to your elbow!

Our customer was struggling to push and pull die cast locking pins in and out of an engine die cast using their existing Hydraulic Power Pack (HPU).

MF was invited to offer a solution.

We doubled the power output and speed resulting in supplying 11kw, 280 bars and 20lpm new mobile HPU. The customer is very happy with the end result with lots more power to start and finish their job.
