TECH TIPS

Winter Clean Up

Now is the perfect time to clean your equipment for the upcoming year! In addition to the required annual inspections, why not make your equipment look as good as new? A clean piece of equipment will result in better performance and efficiency.

Annual inspections must be performed on the scissor lift or boom lift no later than thirteen (13) months from the date of the prior annual inspection, and the inspection must be in accordance with items specified by the manufacturer for an annual inspection. Most manufacturers’ service manuals contain a form and procedures for the items that must be inspected. The inspection needs to be done by a person or persons qualified as a mechanic on the specific type of aerial platform. Also, a mobile elevating work platform should not be put into service until any malfunctions and/or problems discovered during the inspection have been corrected.  C-Tech offers service manuals for most makes of equipment and offers annual inspection decals to document your inspection results. 

In addition to your inspecting and repairs, some other items to consider are:

•             Install a new decal kit so that all warning labels are legible (an ANSI requirement). C-Tech is your source for decals for all makes and models of aerial equipment

•             Touch up those rough spots with spray paint from C-Tech! We offer color-matched paint for most boom and scissor lift manufacturers.  

•             Install new wheels and tires. C-Tech offers competitive pricing and the largest stock of wheels and tires in the industry!  

•             Make sure operator’s manuals and ANSI Manual of Responsibilities are in a waterproof case.

•             Tune up your engine powered equipment (air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and more).
