No matter the size, make or model of your EWP access equipment, once a new machine is 10 years old, it must be rebuilt to comply with National Safety Standards.
What happens during the rebuild process?
When a machine is rebuilt it is completely stripped down and sandblasted, all critical welds are crack-tested and repaired as needed, all pins and bushes are checked and replaced if needed. Full checkover of the hydraulic system and electrical system. The machines are then repainted and reassembled and all safety systems are checked. Rebuilt machines are fitted with a Rebuild Plate to record this process.
Upon completion of the rebuild the machines are legally certified for a 5-year period. They have a 3-month warranty from the date of the rebuild (if purchased as a second-hand machine from LiftX) and are sold with a valid 6-month certification.
All of our 10-year major inspections are carried out to AS 2550.10 STD and comply with New Zealand’s Current Code of Practice.
