Boasting in excess of 80 trained engineers at over 20 service points throughout the UK, Fassi offer a product support which is second-to-none. Our service points are spread all over the UK meaning that wherever you are working, assistance is always nearby.

Here at Central Crane Technicians, our ALLMI certified staff are able to test and repair any make of lorry loader including Fassi, PM, Palfinger, Hiab, HMF and Atlas in our purpose built workshop. We have the specialist experience to carry out any job on a lorry loader, from an inspection to a full refurbishment, including hoses, seals, paint and decals etc.

Lorry loader types and applications vary a great deal and because of this it is important to schedule service inspections accordingly. CCT are able to offer tailor-made monthly service contracts to keep your crane operating at its maximum capacity.

During a routine service our technicians will note any wear items and provide a detailed written estimate of any further work to be carried out. Minor defects can be rectified immediately keeping your crane performing with safety and reliability.

We also have mobile service engineers and on-site service vans allowing us to attend breakdowns 24 hours a day, importantly minimising the time your lorry loader spends off the road.

Crane Parts

At Central Crane Technicians our service department are able to supply and fit spare parts for all makes and models of lorry loader crane.

We supply radio remote controls, supplementary stabilizers, stabilizer pads, crane pumps, hydraulic hoses, oil tanks and more with a wide stock to ensure that turnaround times are at a minimum.

We also accept credit/debit card payments, and have the facilities for overnight dispatch allowing you to get your lorry loader back on the road as soon as possible.

Load Testing

Current legislation requires that all lifting equipment must be thoroughly examined at least once every 12 months by a competent person. The requirements of the testing and the competence of the examiner are defined under the latest Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER). In addition - BS7121 Parts 2 and 4 recommend a 25% overload test be carried out:

  • Before first being taken into service
  • Every 4 years after being taken into service
  • Every 4 years thereafter
  • After a major repair or component change
  • When a change of chassis takes place

All lorry loaders installed by Central Crane Technicians are tested to 125% of maximum load using our calibrated test weights.

We adhere to the LOLER / ALLMI guidelines on lorry loaders by offering a documented 12 Month Inspection and 4 yearly load test system. We recommend this is done in conjunction with a regular 6 monthly service to minimise time off road and to ensure reliable future operation.
