Hydrostatic Transmission + Driving Simulator

The MF500-HT-TSE is an instructor’s “dream-come-true” with respect to teaching state-of-the-art, electronically-controlled hydrostatic transmission systems – hands-on. It can even be driven as if it were on a construction site,  in real-time!

Driving a skid-steer loader around a construction site and operating the MF500-HT-TSE in the lab amounts to the same thing – without the hazards!

Designed for instructors who want to teach hydrostatic transmission and steering systems with the same components found in popular front-end loaders but without the safety hazards and physical limitations of operating a loaded, faulty skidsteer in a shop full of students.

Teach basic concepts to advanced applications + troubleshooting in a classroom-friendly manner where students can gather around to see real-time symptoms of faults as you drive the simulator through a variety of scenarios.

Pricing upon request


The electronically-controlled, infinitely variable, wheel-load system allows students to drive the hydrostatic transmission under any type of operating condition, i.e., up-hill, downhill, level surface – it can even simulate a runaway condition.

World Renowned
Training Experts

The Fluid Power Training Institute (FPTI) team, spearheaded by world-renowned expert Rory McLaren, bring their decades of experience as the go-to experts in industry for all things hydraulics, pneumatics, and more into the classroom with these incredible training systems.

These rugged, robust, practical, and skills-driven hydraulics, pneumatics, and electrical training systems are proudly built in the United States and are trusted by industry partners and educators across the globe.

We Can Help

We invite all educators looking at investing in hydraulic training systems to attend one of our workshops or give us a call to set up a Free Consultation.

At the very least, you'll learn proper safety procedures when it comes to hydraulics.

Our workshops are so effective, we guarantee for our industrial customers a 75% reduction in their hydraulic component replacement costs after attending or their money back.

Let us, leading experts in the field, help your school train the next generation!

Experience, Realized

"Over two decades ago I was teaching a class in Salt Lake City, Utah. One of my students, a teacher from a technical college in northern California, was so impressed with my training “system” that he asked if I would make a duplicate of it for him. I did, and the rest is history! Today, you will find my hydraulic training systems in the USA, Canada, Australia, Africa, Asia, South America, and Saudi Arabia ... It is also the number one choice for Corporate Technical Training Centers.

FPTI™ is the fastest growing fluid power training systems provider in the world - ask any teacher who uses our system, or any student who has attended our workshops. There's nothing else like it."

- Rory McLaren, Founder FPTI


When industry professionals come into a 4-day required workshop thinking they already know everything, and within 5 minutes are scribbling notes and taking photos, it makes us proud.

Hydraulics is our life. And we take great pride in sharing our knowledge, our wisdom, and our livelihoods with young minds to give them a better future.

Please ask us questions, reach out, pick our brains - we live to share our stories and wisdom surrounding fluid power with educators, students, and industry professionals.



FPTI training solutions are complete with all learning materials for successful implementation in the classroom and/or lab. Best-in-class manuals, curriculum, and web-based learning.
