It is better to ask this question in another way; what are the points that make it difficult for us to use a construction lift? This question can now be answered more comprehensively. There are many problems that may arise in this area.
We will first look at these problems and briefly review them.
Then it's time to identify the root causes of these problems. Ultimately, our goal is to make the necessary recommendations in a proper summary and try to keep you away from possible accidents.
As always, join us to explore another challenge around building lifts.
From technical problems to application problems; A building lift is vulnerable to damage Tools and instruments have a special sensitivity depending on their application and how they work.
For example, a nut mounted on a car wheel is more sensitive than a nut mounted on the base of a table.
Accordingly, the more sensitive a device is, the more security measures must be taken. But what are the security measures that should be observed for a device and what measures should be considered in the use of a building lift?
The first step is to keep a device secure when you buy it. We advise you not to go for stock and second-hand items when buying sensitive equipment such as construction hoists.
Construction lifts are tools that can seriously threaten your life and property in the event of a technical defect.
A second-hand building lift may have suffered serious damage while in the service of the former owner. In the following text, we will deal with this issue more.
In the next step, it is important to be careful when buying a lift that its capacity is in accordance with the level of your needs. For example, a lift with a capacity of 200 kg is definitely less expensive under equal conditions than a construction lift with a capacity of 500 kg. First determine what your needs level is; then choose between the two.
If your level of needs is in line with the 200 kg ceiling, this is a better choice because if you buy a building lift with a ceiling of 500 kg, it is true that your needs will still be met, but you will definitely lose money and pay extra.
On the other hand, if the level of your needs is in accordance with the ceiling of five hundred kilograms, buying and using a species of two hundred kilograms is extremely risky. A construction lift may be able to operate beyond its capacity for a certain period of time, but it will suddenly slump and cause you severe damage.
Even if you buy a new and fresh product, try it a few times more than undermining it. Make sure the engine and gearbox are in good condition and properly installed. A construction hoist is a highly sensitive device and the slightest mistake in its use will be costly.
Try to delegate the task of working with a construction lift to experienced people. People who not have enough experience will cause damage to the engine and gearbox by creating additional load on the device and pressure on it.
It should be noted that most of the problems that occur in a material lift are due to misuse. So if you want a long life of the device, be sure to leave it to experienced users.
Why is it risky to buy a second hand construction lift?
Our long experience in construction and field accidents shows that second-hand lifts are the focus of many accidents. The root of the problem is well known; Depreciation.
A construction hoist is a sensitive device under extreme pressure. This means that whether you like it or not, this device will depreciate over time. Yes, it is quite true that proper use will cause less depreciation of the device; But be careful only less! No zero depreciation.
So keep in mind that the second-hand device you buy has spent part of its life naturally.
This is the case if the previous user has worked with it carefully, but is there a guarantee in this case? Definitely not.
As mentioned, even with the correct use, the building lift will be depreciated, but now suppose that the same device was also under incorrect and heavy use; In this case, what is the task?
Rest assured that the second-hand device purchased may be physically sound, but it has become weaker and weaker with the passage of various pressures.
From structural weakness to poor performance; buying a used construction lift is wrong!
It is true that buying a used lift will cost you less, but at what cost? The price of first-hand building materials is much higher than second-hand, but the important thing is that after buying it, you can be sure that you will not face any hidden weaknesses and shortcomings.
Weakness in the chassis is one of the most problematic aspects of buying a second-hand product. Without complex mechanical tests in practice, you will not be able to determine the strength of the chassis and its fatigue.
Sometimes the chassis of a material lift is partially under constant pressure, which is so-called fatigue.
A chassis with a high degree of fatigue will soon break in the face of external forces. The construction engine is another dimension of the issue that needs to be carefully considered.
Electric motors have a certain life, and if a small part of their life is left, it is difficult to trust them.
The engine and gearbox of a building lift are in the role of the beating heart, and if they stop working, they will cause irreparable damage. Damage to your life and property and that of the workers is the worst penalty you can pay for a wrong purchase.
