In 1968, Herb Stone pioneered and developed a compact hydraulic power unit utilizing an electric motor. Stone originated the interchangeable integrated-module hydraulic system. His concept was simple but powerful. It eliminated the need for complex and expensive power take-off pumps and drastically reduced the cost for hydraulic applications that required less horsepower.

Herb stressed Value, Quality and Performance in his power units, which is a virtue still shared at Stone today. Stone units use components that ensure long life and quality which customers expect from a market leader.
