Client Testimonials

“Over the last 6 months we have changed most of our saws to Hangsterfers with immediate improvements such as cleaner work areas, longer blade life and better cuts! …it’s less greasy and messy than the previous coolant which saves us time cleaning parts after cutting as well as getting the coolant back out of the saw fines for reuse… the cut quality is much improved as far as finish and blade life… Lastly, the people at Hangsterfers are spot on with customer support!”

-James Hostetler, TMS Titanium

“About 9 months ago, we switched to Hangsterfer’s coolant and have since seen a reduction in consumption close to 30%… We no longer have a pungent coolant odor… our employees are happy for the switch and experience no skin irritation… We believe our work environment is healthier and cleaner. Thank you for a great product.”

-Tim Moore, Special Mine Services
