Who is Mevas France?

MEVAS France is a German inspection company for second-hand used construction machinery and cranes. We also maintain an office with inspectors in France. Our technicians can determine and document the condition of used cranes in France and other countries. The focus here is on the inspection of mobile cranes and heavy construction machinery. We also provide expertises for construction machinery and other equipment used on construction sites or in construction companies. We can inspect and assess both individual machines and entire fleets. Our technicians are available throughout France. France is quite large, so travelling is often necessary. If required, we will be happy to provide you with a quote for the inspection of cranes at any location. The inspection company MEVAS is not to be confused with a trading company in France, which has decided to use our good name for its activities. To be clear: We do not trade in machinery, we do not receive commissions, we do not broker trade deals and we do not talk anywhere about cranes or heavy equipment that we have inspected.

Wertgutachten für Mobilkrane, Raupenkrane und Teleskopkrane

Zeitwert von Kranen bestimmen lassen

Wir haben in den letzten Jahren diverse Krane von 60 to bis 750 to Hubkraft bewertet. Die Firma Enercon z.B., gehört zu unseren Kunden für Wertgutachten bei großen Raupenkranen. Da wir kein kommerzielles Interesse am Handel mit Kranen haben, jedoch regelmäßig mit Händlern bei der Begutachtung von Kranen für Käufer und Mieter interagieren, sind wir der geeignete Dienstleister für unabhängige und korrekte Analysen des Restwertes.

1. Identifikation des Kranes

Wir prüfen alle relevanten Angaben, wie Hersteller, Modell, Baujahr, Fahrgestellnummer und technische Spezifikationen, um eine eindeutige Identifikation der Maschine zu gewährleisten. Alle Informationen werden in einer speziellen Checkliste für Krane dokumentiert.

2. Zustandsbewertung

Eine gründliche Inspektion des Krans wird durchgeführt, wobei der aktuelle Zustand der Maschine in Betracht gezogen wird. Hierbei werden Faktoren wie Verschleiß, mechanische Integrität, Rost, eventuelle Unfallschäden und die Wartungshistorie sorgfältig bewertet. Zu diesem Zweck wird ein Kran in der Regel im Einsatz auf der Baustelle besichtigt.

3. Marktrecherche

Um einen umfassenden Überblick über den aktuellen Marktwert zu erhalten, führen wir mit Handelsunternehmen für Krane eine Marktanalyse durch. Hierbei werden vergleichbare Krane auf dem internationalen Markt berücksichtigt, um den Wert des begutachteten Krans zu kontextualisieren. Es gibt regional in den internationalen Märkten unterschiedliche Anforderungen in Bezug auf Hakenhöhen, Hubkraft und Transportfähigkeit.

4. Alter und Nutzung

Das Alter des Krans sowie seine bisherige Nutzung werden in die Bewertung einbezogen. Dabei wird berücksichtigt, dass ein älterer Kran mit geringer Nutzung unter Umständen einen höheren Wert haben kann als ein neuerer Kran mit intensiver Nutzung. Es erfolgt also zuerst eine kalkulatorische Ermittlung des Zeitwertes unter Beachtung der degressiven Abschreibung. Dann werden die wertbeeinflussenden Faktoren wie Betriebsstunden, Ausrüstung und Wartungszustand in die Bewertung einbezogen.

5. Technische Spezifikationen, Zubehör

Die technischen Spezifikationen des Krans, wie Tragfähigkeit, Reichweite, Hubhöhe und eventuelle Zusatzausstattung, werden akkurat erfasst und in die Bewertung integriert, um den Wert genau zu bestimmen. Es werden alle Komponenten wie Auslegerverlängerungen, Spitzen, besondere Ballastierungen und Abspannungen in die Bewertung einbezogen.

6. Wartung und Instandhaltung

Die Servicehistorie des Krans wird geprüft, um sicherzustellen, dass der Kran ordnungsgemäß gewartet wurde. Ein gut gewarteter Kran wird in der Regel höher bewertet als einer, bei dem die Wartung vernachlässigt wurde. Das Kran-Prüfbuch wird auf Aktualität und regelmäßige Einträge der wiederkehrenden Sachverständigen-Gutachten überprüft. Der Kran und dessen Historie werden auf Unfallschäden geprüft.

Unsere Erfahrungen und unser Netzwerk

Die Qualifikation und Erfahrung des Gutachters in der Bewertung von Autokranen gewährleisteten die Genauigkeit und Objektivität des Gutachtens. Wir halten uns an die ethischen Voraussetzungen, welche an unabhängige Sachverständige gestellt werden. Wie oben beschrieben, haben wir kein kommerzielles Interesse am Handel mit Kranen. Bei Interesse können wir Sie jedoch, nach einem Gutachten, mit Händlern für gebrauchte Krane in Verbindung bringen.

Gutachten für Krane für den Verkauf nutzen

Unsere Checklisten für gebrauchte Krane werden auf Deutsch oder Englisch erstellt. Als Nutzer von Mobilkranen können Sie unsere Dokumentation des Zustandes auch für den Verkauf Ihrer überzähligen Maschinen nutzen. Wir inspizieren regelmäßig gebrauchte Krane für Käufer und unsere Berichte sind international anerkannt.

SGS Crane Inspections

A better service for used crane inspections

Are you looking for an inspector for a used crane? Did you come across or did you hear from SGS or TÜV? If you are looking for statutory or safety inspections for cranes SGS is a good solution. Well trained staff and available in many countries.

Does SGS understand used cranes?

There is a difference between inspection of a used crane for a buyer and a safety or statutory inspection. An inspector who is trained for Loler or OSHA inspections does not necessarily understand what a purchaser of a used crane wants. This is the situation when MEVAS comes on stage.

Crane inspections by our experts

MEVAS inspectors understand, how to prepare a reasonable inspection report for buyers of used cranes. A detailed report focuses on machine details such as leaks, maintenance status, wear in ropes, wear on tires and other details which are influencing the remaining value of a crane. Our technicians know how to take reasonable pictures and videos. They crawl under the crane to search for cracks and leaks. Rust on chassis is estimated as well as condition of tool boxes, swing bearing and telescopic cylinder condition. Our engineers use a specific checklist for each type of crane. We have inspected mobile cranes up to 500 to lifting capacity and large crawler cranes for windmills.

Used Cranes for Sale

Where to find used mobile and ATT cranes

To find used mobile, crawler and all terrain cranes, you can try the following methods:

  1. Online Equipment Marketplaces: Visit online marketplaces that specialize in buying and selling used cranes.

Allowed Swing Bearing Play on mobile and crawler cranes

How much tilting play is allowed in the slewing ring of a mobile or a crawler crane?

Ask three specialists and you will get three different answers. If you ask Liebherr, i.e. the people who would like to sell you a repair or a new slewing ring, you will get the statement that the tolerance limit would be reached at 0.9 mm tilting play. If you ask a mobile crane user in Eastern Europe or Africa, they will say anything under 5mm is fine.

What does a crane inspector say about swing bearing play?

As inspectors of used cranes, what is our opinion on this? Since the tilting play in the slewing ring is sometimes 0.3 to 0.6 mm even on new cranes, we do not think it is necessary to criticize a slewing ring if it has less than 1.2 mm tilting play. To know exactly, you should also measure the slewing ring play over at least three or four sides. Experienced inspectors know exactly how the procedure must be carried out. It is particularly important that the crane is ballasted. When we inspect a used mobile crane, we typically only measure across one side. Only when there are doubts about the condition is it measured over several pages.

Why is it important to measure swing bearing play from time to time on a mobile crane?

Measuring swing bearing play on a mobile crane is crucial for several reasons, and it plays a significant role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of the crane. Here are some key reasons why it’s important to regularly measure swing bearing play:

  1. Safety:
    • Excessive swing bearing play can compromise the stability and structural integrity of the crane, leading to potential accidents or tip-overs. Regular measurements help identify issues before they become critical, ensuring the safety of both operators and bystanders.
  2. Equipment Longevity:
    • Monitoring swing bearing play allows early detection of wear and tear. Addressing any play or movement issues promptly helps prevent further damage to the swing bearing and other related components, thus extending the overall lifespan of the crane.
  3. Operational Performance:
    • Properly functioning swing bearings are essential for smooth crane operation. Excessive play can lead to imprecise control and reduced accuracy during lifting and positioning tasks. Regular measurements help maintain optimal operational performance.
    • Imagine a crane has the boom extended to 80 or more meters and there is 5mm play on swing bearing. On getting load the tip would reduce height and angle of boom significantly.
  4. Preventive Maintenance:
    • Regularly checking swing bearing play is a part of preventive maintenance practices. Identifying and addressing potential problems early can prevent more extensive and costly repairs in the future, minimizing downtime and maximizing crane availability.
  5. Regulatory Compliance:
    • Many regulatory bodies and safety standards require periodic inspections and maintenance of crane components, including swing bearings. Regular measurements help ensure compliance with these regulations and standards, reducing the risk of legal and financial consequences.
  6. Cost Savings:
    • Proactive maintenance based on regular measurements can be more cost-effective than reactive repairs. Early identification and correction of swing bearing issues help avoid major breakdowns and the associated costs of emergency repairs and crane downtime.
  7. Reliability:
    • A crane with a well-maintained swing bearing is more reliable and less likely to experience unexpected failures. This reliability is crucial in construction and industrial settings where cranes play a vital role in various operations.

In summary, measuring swing bearing play on a mobile crane is essential for maintaining safety, extending equipment life, ensuring optimal performance, complying with regulations, and ultimately minimizing costs associated with repairs and downtime. Regular inspections and maintenance contribute to the overall reliability and efficiency of the crane in its operational environment.

How much does it cost to replace a worn slewing bearing?

Depending on size and lifting capacity of a crane or an excavator the swing bearing itself can easily cost above 8.000 Euro. Then you need all the pins to fix it on superstructure and chassis. That’s another 1.500 Euro at least. But with this cost the slew ring hasn’t been exchanged yet. Cranes are required to lift the superstructure. You need big tools to open and fit the pins with appropriate torque. All in all the replacing cost for a sllew ring will be in most cases far above 10.000 Euro.

For the reason of the big cost it is strongly recommended to measure the play if you are buying a crane or a larger excavator. Hire an expert to inspect a used crane and check out those details.
