Face it, while they are a money and time saving tool to many industries, boom trucks are not cheap to buy nor are they inexpensive to own and operate. Add to this the fact that OSHA and all crane manufacturers require documented daily, weekly, monthly and annual maintenance and inspection procedures (the lack of which will find you paying hefty fines or voiding warranties); it is without a doubt in the crane owners’ best interest to make sure his people know what they are doing.

Keep in mind as well, that the required inspections are designed to catch problems before they become critical. To that end, employees have to be able to recognize when an issue can be handled “in house” and when it is time to call the professionals. An additional bonus is that trained employees can better document and explain to our Service Manager and our technicians, just what is happening with their crane when they do bring it to Runnion for crane repairs, annual inspections or scheduled maintenance services.
Our Free Maintenance Seminar is always held on a Saturday usually starting at 8 am (donuts and coffee are served) and it runs until 11:30 formally or until everybody has their questions answered.

Manufacturers’ reps for the cranes we sell also show up from time to time and make themselves available for questions.
One more item to note - the first telescoping crane and the first knuckleboom crane customer to register get their cranes lubed for free (since we will use them in the demo)!
