Richards-Wilcox Custom-Cranes No longer Manufactures or Services Crane Systems
For over 90 years, we have been providing crane service from Toronto to Hamilton on hoist and gantry crane. Many of the overhead cranes and crane operators we manufactured are still around today and being used in new construction sites. Through regular inspections or crane service repair by trained technicians, equipment life is prolonged by preventing wear and tear. These construction cranes are used on many major sites and come in a wide range of sizes and capacities. We have switched this side of the business over to a proven crane vendor. They have qualified technicians that are always up-to-date with proper crane operator training.
When do cranes need to be inspected?
Crane inspection and examination, as required by law, depends on the classification, the frequency and the number of cycles on which the equipment is being used. Preventive maintenance programs can be customized based on your crane system and equipment specifications. They prevent equipment safety issues, breakdowns and advert component failures. Not only does this avoid unnecessary production downtime, but it saves both time and money.
