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:
|Occasion||Minimum test and thorough examination|
|Before being first taken into service||Full test (Proof load test of rated capacity 125% at full radius and through the full slewing arc and a thorough examination)|
|Annually after being first put into service||Proof load test of rated capacity 110% at full radius and through the full slewing arc and a thorough examination|
|4 years after first being put into service||Full test|
|8 years after first being put into service||Non-destructive test of structure|
|After each structural repair or component change||Full test|
|When chassis is changed||Full test|
|When crane is removed and refitted||Full test|
Periodic thorough examinations are also required for the following items:
- In the case of equipment for lifting persons, at least every 6 months
- A lifting accessory (e.g. slings, chains, grabs etc) at least every 6 months
- In the case of other lifting equipment, at least every 12 months
