Easy to Read Reports

You will receive an initial inspection report with details and pictures. A final inspection report will be created after service has been completed.

Don't let breakdowns slow you down.

Malfunctioning equipment slows your production and costs you money in the long run. Waiting to hear back from other service companies for days, weeks, or even months at a time is aggravating. You also can't risk some parts being overlooked and missed. You don't have time or money to waste.

Why Choose PWI to Service Your Crane?

Your company is far too valuable to experience downtime. You don't have time to waste waiting for weeks for someone to come fix your crane. You also shouldn't try to fix it yourself when you're in over your head. You run the risk of having even more delays and repairs if you try to do it yourself and don't know what you're doing.

You need someone who has experience and does things right the first time. You will have peace of mind that we will get your company up and running as soon as possible. We also offer "loaner" hoists if your hoist problem can't be fixed quickly.

PWI will take care of all of your service, inspection, and maintenance needs. It doesn't matter your company size — we will treat you with the urgency and respect that you deserve. We also diagnose and offer suggestions for future problems that may occur. You will have reduced downtime and smooth operation.

Limit switches can move if the chain is constantly run all the way up to the top. In order to avoid this, don't run the chain all the way to the top.

The most often case is that the batteries are dead. To get the most out of your battery life, make sure to turn off the transmitter when not in use.

The first thing we check is if there is a loose wire in the pendant or in the hoist. This is usually the result of pulling the hoist by the pendant cable, rather than the chain. To make sure your pendant cable lasts for a long time, only move the hoist by its chain.

It's usually the limit switch. Manually move the toggle up and down a few times and it should start working again.
