As a construction company, you know that having a crane in top working condition is essential to the success of your projects. But with all the wear and tear that cranes endure, it's inevitable that they will need repairs from time to time. That's why T&M Cranes has put together this list of the top repairs for cranes, so you can keep your projects on schedule and on budget.
At T&M we specialize in all things cranes—parts, service, and everything in between. Our team understands the importance of keeping your machinery in working order to maintain the function and productivity of your job site. Never miss a service date or a repair when you work with the experts at T&M. But now, below are some key repairs for cranes you should be aware of.
1. Replacing Worn or Damaged Parts
One of the most common repair required for cranes is replacing parts that have become worn down or damaged through normal use. This could include anything from replacing old cables to fixing damage to the crane's superstructure. T&M Cranes can provide you with all the replacement parts you need to keep your crane in top working condition.
2. Servicing the Hydraulic System
Another common repair needed for cranes is servicing the hydraulic system. This system is responsible for lifting and lowering the crane's boom, so it's important to keep it in good working order. T&M Cranes can flush and refill your crane's hydraulic system, as well as repair any leaks or other damage that may have occurred—keeping you in business and your crew safe.
3. Replacing the Engine Oil and Filters
Over time, the engine oil in your crane will break down and become less effective at lubricating and cooling the engine. This can lead to increased wear and tear on the engine, which can eventually lead to engine failure. To avoid this, it's important to have the engine oil and filters on your crane replaced on a regular basis. T&M Cranes can take care of this for you so you can be sure your engine is always running at its best.
4. Inspecting and Repairing Electrical Systems
Cranes rely heavily on electrical systems for many of their functions, so it's essential to keep these systems in good working order. T&M Cranes can inspect your crane's electrical system for any potential problems and make any necessary repairs to ensure everything is up to code. This will help prevent unexpected downtime due to electrical issues.
