    We perform a visual inspection of your hoist drum, trolley rails, girders, wheels end trucks, upper sheave nest, lower block, bumpers end stops and keyway to line shaft connection.We measure your wire rope and hook tram.

    All of the above information is recorded and your crane is then completely lubricated and all fluid levels are checked.
