Mechanical components of any crane – generally moving parts
like gearboxes, sheaves, rope drums and braking systems
have a 10-year design life.
Structural items like beams and bolts have a 25-year design life.
Workplace Health & Safety Legislation and AS1418 and AS2550
specify mandatory major inspections at 10 years for mechanical
components and 25 years for structural components.
Eilbeck Cranes has a team of engineers and technicians
dedicated to mandatory inspections and overhauls. This team
can work with your staff to customise the major inspection
process and ensure compliance with statutory requirements.
For ABUS cranes, Eilbeck uses the ABUS 10 Year Kit to ensure
key wearing components are replaced and supplied new from
the original crane manufacturer. This results in minimal down
time and a guaranteed 10 year further life.
