Crane Maintenance

(Spanish)

The Western Precast maintenance department is currently working on general repair and maintenance of the boom crane trucks for our shipping department. These crane trucks are one of the most important pieces of our delivery and manufacturing process, since both the production department and shipping department depend on them to deliver our products on time and in perfect condition. Part of the maintenance that is given to the crane trucks is to check damaged or worn parts, as well as ensuring that the hydraulic system is free of damage or oil leaks.

All hydraulic hoses are inspected for wear or broken couplings, and hydraulic oil pressure levels are assured to be within tolerance per manufacturer’s specifications. QMC Crane is the manufacturer of all of our boom cranes, their input and parts are used for all repairs and maintenance. This process of inspection, repair and preventative maintenance remains constant in order to ensure that the equipment is kept at optimum working condition, all while ensuring safe operation.
