Repair or replacement

When a choice must be made between repair and replacement the following considerations are hold sway:

  • The extension of the economic and technical working life that can be achieved with a repair in relation to the costs of the repair.
  • The turnaround time for the repair activities compared to the delivery period for new material. This point is particularly of importance if the crane or a part of it cannot be done without. Partly for this reason Avezaat Cranes keeps a large and varied quantity of specifically suitable high quality material in stock, so a repair can be started very quickly if required.
  • The comparison between all costs of replacement and repair.


The trend is more towards repair or overhaul because the material has to be used longer.
