technical inspection of used machine

technical inspection of used reach stacker with container weight

Before delivery of used machines our technicians check them in our workshop in the port of Hamburg. Thanks to their almost 30 years of experience in this field, they repair and maintain containerhandlerheavy duty forklift, big forklift and reach stacker.


Usually we do a service of the containerstacker / container lifter before delivery including the change of filters (hydraulic oil filter, motor oil filter, air filter etc...). If a large service is needed we also change the hydraulic oil, engine oil and transmission oil. In addition we check the correct functioning of the air conditioning and the whole machine when the work is finished.


This way you can be sure that you will receive a used forklift or reach staker in impeccable technical condition which will provide satisfactory service in the long run.


You want to carry out an inspection to be sure that the used container forklift is in good working condition ?

This is no problem. Just tell us the day you are coming and we organise everything for the inspection. If you come by airplane to the airport of Hamburg we pick you up.


If you cannot come you can give order to one of the following companies to inspect the machine for you and issue a technical certificate.

  1. inspection by an independent surveyor from BUREAU VERITAS or SGS 
  2. inspection by an experienced surveyor from MEVAS who is focused on the technical condition of the machine
  3. inspection according to ISO FEM4004
  4. measure the compression of the engine
  5. measure the pression of the hydraulic bombs
  6. measure the pression of the transmission / gearbox
  7. we can also deliver the machine with new tires if necessary

Of course you can also appoint another surveyor if you want to. Furthermore also a mechanic of the manufacturer itself can inspect the machine for you and then issue an inspection certificate certifying the technical condition of the machine.


At the bottom an example of an inspection certificate to show you what is looks like.
