19/09/2019: There are great perks in the job of a MEWP engineer

Where else could you get such an uninterrupted view of the scenery around Bridgend? This photograph was taken from the platform of a Genie Z135/70 while carrying out its 6 monthly LOLER examination.

On-site certification can save valuable down time and keep your equipment on-site ready to get back to work as soon as the test is done.

If you have MEWP plant that is under time pressure and want regular maintenance or testing done on site, simply give us a call or click in the header of any page to send an email.

20/08/2019: New slew bearing for this customer's van-mounted Versalift.

This van mounted Versalift 36NF came to us in a fairly sorry state. A long period without maintenance and a lack of grease to lubricate the slew bearing had caused it to wear past the manufacturer' permitted tolerance.

With new bearing fitted and lubricated, the rest of the machine was submitted to a thorough examination to check for other worn components. None were found so a quick clean and grease of the other moving parts was all that was required.

Finally, a load test and LOLER examination were carried out so that the platform could get back to work and earning money for its owner again.

If you have a platform that needs a repair, and want it done when it suits you, get in touch. You can either call on the number shown, or click in the header of any page to send us an email.

09/07/2019: Repairs to a Customer 2008 CTE Z20 telescopic boom

This repair was carried out for a customer across the bridge in Somerset. The image shows their machine in our Chepstow workshop with its booms out.

Work carried out to this 3.5 tonne truck mounted access platform included replacing the extend and retract chains. The guidelines from CTE stipulate mandatory replacement of chains after ten years. We also carried out a full boom strip and inspection of all internal parts along with the fitting of new chains.

The work was finished with a load test and thorough examination, and issue of a new LOLER certificate.

The platform is now on its way back to Weston-Super-Mare, ready to put back into service. If you have a machine in need of service or repair and want to minimise downtime, you may find our flexible approach to scheduling according to your workload, rather than ours refreshing. Call us on the number shown, or click in the header of any page to send an email for more details.
