Material handlers, such as cranes, are an incredibly significant and common tool regularly used in the construction sector. Available in a range of varied sizes, shapes, and capabilities, the possibilities of a crane are truly endless.
Proper maintenance of a crane is vital to ensuring the safety of workers on site as well as the longevity of your machine. For this reason, allow us to share a complete guide to crane maintenance and repairs:
Difficulties, breakdowns, and changes can happen in day-to-day construction projects. Pre-start maintenance of your crane is a significant way to solve or prevent these issues from occuring.
You might be asking, ‘what is a pre-start check?’ A pre-start inspection is a quick but thorough review of your machine to ensure it can be safely operated. This procedure can include, but is not limited to:
- Checking the jib and hook for damage, including cracks, bends, and thread damage.
- Ensuring the materials being transported are within range of the crane’s capabilities.
- Checking safety latches.
- Checking the hoist.
- Checking signs for leaks and damages.
- Checking the operational area for any obstructions.
