UPRIGHT S.N.A. AERIAL WORK PLATFORMS / CASTERS

 

ISSUE:

Casters taking major abuse?  Upright SNA aerial work platforms/casters will show you how to take steps to prevent small problems from turning into large problems. Upright SNA aerial work platforms/casters is a brief informational on our casters, their use and their abuse.

REASON:

Because the casters are on the bottom of the upright scaffolding or your aerial work platform. They are the last to be looked at until there is a problem. Normally we check the structure of the scaffolding as we build it. The aerial work platforms we normally just jump up onto and go up. We have become too trusting with our equipment. Remember you’re in control of your Upright SNA Aerial Work Platforms.

PREVENTION:

To prevent problems with your UPRIGHT SNA AERIAL WORK PLATFORMS / CASTERS, start by reading the instruction manual.  It takes 10 minutes and will save you time and money. When inspecting your equipment start at the bottom with your casters. Check them for string and other debris. Make sure the brakes work by pushing them down to lock them and pulling up on the lever to unlock them. Check to make sure your Upright Aerial Work Platform casters rotate side to side easily with the brake-off. So if you check your casters every morning and look for string and other debris that can wrap itself around your castor. Now is the time to remove it not later. By ignoring this and using the scaffolding the string or other debris will continue to wrap itself tighter and tighter around your castor hub. Once that happens you will need to take your castor apart and clean out the debris and then reassemble your castor. This will take you about a half hour to 45 minutes per castor. This equates to time and money.
