I need to install an electric to hydraulic converter

I have a customer with an old Toro hydraulic system and the old Custom controller can not be repaired. The controller works fine manually but a broken plastic piece keeps it from automation.
I can get a converter from Toro but was hoping to try one from VR manufacturing. I get no response from email or phone messages, are they still in business?

I talked with him last year and he was working and running the business in the evenings.

We got in touch, I shouldn't be so impatient.
Looks like I need to go the Toro way.

If you have pin-type valves, Toro may still have the individual convertors for them.

You could convert the entire system to electric, but I assume there's a reason that you're looking for other options.
