Crane Refurbishment Service from Mantis Cranes

Refurbishment involves restoring, renovating, or repairing a crane to its original condition.

Why Refurbish a Crane?

Refurbishing a crane will extend its lifespan and improve the safety and efficiency of your crane. Having the crane restored or renovated to its original or updated condition can be more cost-effective than investing in a new crane.

The experienced team at Mantis Cranes will strip down the crane and replace or repair parts as needed. The components are sandblasted and repainted. Then the crane is assembled and tested before being returned to the customer.

Refurbishment gives machinery a new lease of life and will ensure many more years of quality and reliable service. Having a crane refurbished is a cost-effective alternative to either buying a new crane or buying a used crane.

Repair & Replacement  Damaged parts are repaired or replaced and obsolete parts are upgraded

Painting & Assembly  The components are painted and the crane is reassembled

Final Inspection  The crane is inspected to ensure all repairs have been completed

Erect & Test  Tests are completed and the crane is commissioned
