Crane Servicing & Repairs

Spenborough Engineering

Crane testing is an integral part of the service that we offer.

Every loader crane must go through a Thorough Examination and Inspection by a competent person every year as required by LOLER.

From our purpose-built workshop, our Allmi certified staff are able to test, repair and service any lorry loader, this includes Fassi, Atlas, Palfinger, PM, Hiab and HMF.

As a company, we adhere to the guidelines/regulations set out by LOLER / ALLMI on lorry loaders by providing a report of thorough examination document.

LOLER (The Lifting Operation and Lifting Equipment Regulations) requires lifting equipment to be thoroughly examined by a competent person:

  • Before first use
  • Following the repair or replacement of a structural component
  • When a change of chassis takes place
  • When removed and refitted to the original chassis

BS 7121 Part 2 – Recommendations for periodic testing and thorough examination of loader cranes are:
