The longer we use a platform, the better for our business. We earn more money (higher revenue), and the costs are simply spread over more years.
Machines your rent must be in good condition, otherwise your rental customers won’t cooperate with you, and that is where remanufacturing comes in.
Remanufacturing of used platforms is not only more cost effective and lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) than buying a new machine, but also more environmentally friendly, and very good for reducing our carbon footprint. The more things we recycle, the less garbage pollutes our environment. So now more about what exactly this remanufacturing is…
First, your aerial platform will be completely disassembled, and all parts checked for wear and functionality. Then the metal elements are sandblasted, primed, and painted (in a color chosen by a customer). All errors and defects affecting the smooth operation of the machine are repaired / removed. Damaged pins, bearings bushings, and electrical cables are replaced. The hydraulic hoses are checked and changed for new. The engine of the machine is inspected and overhauled if needed. All oils are replaced. The batteries are replaced with brand new ones. If the wheels are in a poor condition, are exchange as well.
After the machine is repaired, we thoroughly test it to make sure it is operating in accordance with safety regulations. After passing all stages of the remanufacturing process, the access platform is ready for shipment to the customer. A remanufactured machine can come with warranty depending on the agreement with the customer.
