Pick-Up the Basics on Overhead Cranes

Being a site manager is tough. You are constantly moving, solving problems, and jotting things down on that never-ending ‘to do’ list. Being busy means you don’t have time for equipment failures or jobsite accidents.

Although your time is limited, take time to conduct inspections. If your equipment is faulty, it might need to be replaced.

Fix It or Replace It?

Equipment doesn’t last forever. If the overhead crane you are using often breaks down, it might be time for a new one.

But first find out if you can repair it. The solution to your problem could be as simple as installing new components or replacing old parts. If needed, you can modernize an older crane.

Not sure whether to repair or replace? Have a professional conduct an inspection. An inspector can analyze your equipment to determine the most viable option.

Don’t Skip on Repairs

Once you decide to repair or replace your equipment, don’t push maintenance to the bottom of your priority list. Although it can create a little downtime, it pays off in the long run. Inspection and maintenance adds years to your equipment and ensures the safety of your workers. It’s also the law.
