APPLICATION

47 Mobile Cranes

A fleet of 47 Mobile Cranes ranging from a 400 ton Tadano Faun ATF 400G-6 to an 8 ton Tadano TS-75ML. The fleet also includes Demag, Grove, Spierings & Terex mobile cranes.

CHALLENGE

The Davies maintenance team were looking for a solution to help them to maintain their wire ropes instead of having to manually apply lubricants to the ropes when the cranes were serviced. They were interested in saving time & money on the lubrication method as well as safely increasing the life & reliability of the wire ropes.

SOLUTION

The Viper Mini WRL was recommended due to the wire rope diameter range of 10-23mm – a portable, easy to use & efficient solution for Davies Crane Hire to quickly, efficiently & safely not only clean but also lubricate the wire ropes of their mobile crane fleet.
