All manufactured equipment made at Riverina Cranes will be manufactured, certified and proof tested to meet Australian Standard requirements

As well now at Riverina Crane Services we now have a Hydraulic Test Bed with a load rating of 50tons at our disposal. Our existing clients have their inspections carried out in 3/6 or 12 month intervals depending on the use, quantity and requirements of the equipment. After completing each inspection, certificates and paperwork will be issued to meet Australian Standards requirements


Inspections, testing and repairs are done by a competent technician, whether it is ONSITE inspection, where we can come out and inspect the equipment to save delivery time, or OFFSITE where the equipment comes to our depot where equipment can be proof loaded to meet requirements



After the equipment has been used and you think there might be an issue with your equipment, below are a couple of examples to keep in mind if your not quite sure if your equipment is suitable for safe working. If you are still unsure bring it down and we can answer your query.
