EWP and Scissor lift Inspections
Brisbane to Sunshine Coast
EWP 10 Year Major Inspection Checklist & Requirements
Turnweld Engineering has now taken on the work of 3 monthly 5 & 10 year inspections on any EWP (Elevated Work Platform), Scissor lift and (Concrete pump 6 yearly). Servicing areas from Brisbane, Gold Coast, Towoomba, Gympie, Maryborough and beyond for all the major EWP inspections.
Having over 10 years of rebuilding and certifying all makes and models of EWP from LG, Versalift, Terex, Abbey, Stelco, Altec, GMJ, RG and more.
What we do is carry out a full inspection with a machine and fabrication shop in house. With the equipment to make all pins, bushes, cylinders, repairs, slid pads, covers all hydraulic hoses and much more to keep the work flowing and minimize down time on parts.
We have great access to a variety of company’s to supply the right product at the right time when needed. All towers are disassembled prepped for crack testing, repaired (if needed) then re-assembled.
Safety being number one, it is in our best interest to comply with all EWP AS2550-10 standards to make sure your machine is as safe and legal as possible. Please feel free to call or send an inquiry through online to find out more.
Drop in with your tower so we can inspect and estimate on the spot what it might cost to get you back in the air.
EWP Inspections Process
Step 1: Consult with you and inspect the EWP to base an estimate for cost.
Step 2: From the approval from you we will arrange a booking time to start inspection.
Step 3: Disassemble, inspecting each item for serviceability or replacement of parts. Prep all welds ready for NDT (nondestructive testing) of critical welds.
Begin to repair any defected items or areas of concern. Inspect pins, bushes, hoses, bolts, rotation gears, hydraulics and components, electrical safety switches, LV insulation (where present)
Step 4: Assemble EWP back to its former self in compliance with AS/NZ 2550 part 10 standards, making sure all items pass requirements and safety. Some upgrades may be needed pending EWP age and history.
Step 5: When all is back together we conduct a stability test on EWP’s (scissor lifts do not require this process). Electrical testing for all insulated EWP’s. Once both pass test we will run the tower through its paces to make sure no fouling of covers, snagging of hoses, and creaking of pins.
Step 6: Fill out the paper work, fit an inspection plate, hand back into service for another 5 years of work.
Please understand that the safety of all towers inspected is our most important duty.
If you cant find the make or model of tower you have for parts then please call as we can source most to all of any EWP parts from GMJ, Altec, Stelco, LG Travel towers, RG, Terex, Versalift.
If we can not source we can replicate with out machine shop.
