Crane and Elevating Work Platform Inspections and Rebuilds


Queensland Legislation (Mobile Crane Code of Practice, 2006) and the Australian Standards (AS2550 & AS1418) stipulate a crane must be inspected by a professional Engineer at the 10 and 25 year rebuild.

Fraser-Lever can work with the workshop of your choice or we can manage the rebuild through our workshop.


Light and Heavy Vehicle Certification:

It is often overlooked in the transport industry that all engineering activities in Queensland are to be performed by an RPEQ or under the direct supervision of an RPEQ.

Fraser-Lever is able to provide certification of heavy and light vehicle modifications in accordance with the National Codes of Practice, the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator and local Transport Authorities. We have inhouse Approved Vehicle Examiners and all designs are certified by our in house RPEQs and CPEngs.
