When your operations depend on the reliability of your cranes and hoists, you need a partner who understands the urgency of every minute of downtime. Harriman Material Handling is dedicated to providing quick and efficient repair and maintenance services to keep your equipment running smoothly. Our experienced engineers and technicians work 24 hours a day, 364 days a year, ensuring the least amount of downtime and the best access to service available.

Tailored Preventative Maintenance Programs

At Harriman, we believe in the power of preventative maintenance. We create custom maintenance programs specifically for your equipment, designed to inspect, perform routine maintenance, and schedule repairs to prevent safety issues, breakdowns, and compliance violations. This proactive approach not only enhances safety but also significantly lowers costs by eliminating emergency service calls and reducing production downtime.

Comprehensive Service Offerings

Our team is equipped to handle a wide range of services, ensuring your crane and hoist systems are always in top condition:

  • System Analysis: We analyze existing crane and hoist systems to determine capacities and ensure your building can support the desired system. If necessary, we can modify building foundations or design new equipment foundations.
  • Capacity Increases: We assess whether your existing crane or hoist system can support increased capacity, providing recommendations for upgrades if needed.

In-Shop Inspections and Testing

Regular inspections and testing are crucial to maintaining the safety and efficiency of your equipment. Harriman offers in-shop inspections and load testing for manual chain hoists, ensuring they meet all safety standards.

  • Non-Destructive Testing of Hooks: We perform non-destructive tests (NDT) on hooks to uncover any hidden fractures, using magnetic particle or dye penetrant tests conducted to ASTM Standards.
  • Dynamic Load Testing: Our dynamic load tests comply with OSHA Regulation 1910, and we provide a load test certificate for each unit tested.
  • Bore-A-Scope Inspections: We use bore-a-scope inspections to examine hoist, trolley, and bridge gearboxes, often avoiding costly disassembly.

24-Hour Repair and Maintenance Services

Our dedicated team of crane and hoist technicians is on call 24 hours a day, 364 days a year. Whether it’s a small ¼-ton hoist or a massive 200-ton crane, we have the expertise to diagnose and repair any issue promptly. If replacement parts aren’t immediately available, we develop temporary solutions to keep your operations running until the correct parts arrive.

  • Detailed Reporting: Our technicians meticulously document all actions taken during service, including any additional issues that may require attention.
  • Quick Turnaround: We prioritize fast service, whether repairing or remanufacturing parts. If neither option is viable, we only charge for tear-down fees and return the hoist promptly.

Repair and Maintenance Contracts for Peace of Mind

Our maintenance contracts offer an easy, cost-effective way to ensure your equipment is always operational. These contracts cover preventative maintenance and emergency repairs, saving you from unexpected costs and downtime.

Retrofitting for Modern Efficiency

Upgrading aging equipment can be more cost-effective than replacing it. Our retrofitting services include ergonomic cab chairs, advanced VFD controls, modern pendant and radio controls, high-strength wheels, and much more. These upgrades bring your equipment into the modern era, enhancing performance and safety.
