We were recently approached by a customer after they had a Donati jib crane installed by one of our competitors. The competitor didn't discuss the clients floor depth and the crane failed when the test load was applied. A few days later AG Cranes were asked to sort the problem out.
After a site visit we advised the client, who's floor depth was only 75mm, to insert ground anchors into the floor within a reinforced concrete base. 3 weeks later our pillar jib installation team arrived and erected the Donati jib crane, complete with a
415v electric chain hoist safely and professionally.
Minutes later a 125% proof load test was applied and the crane passed with flying colours. The engineers then briefly demonstrated the safe use of a jib crane with the client. Together they decided the clutch on the arm was a little too lose and the arm was swinging too freely. After a small adjustment our guys left another satisfied customer.
We went on to receive a glowing testimonial from the client, who also went on to book a jib crane training course for 6 people as well as an annual service. The training course includes; safe slinging and the use of a jib crane and its safe lifting operations.
