Welding Repairs

Following a recent enquiry from the wider industry, ALLMI’s Technical Standards Committee has reconfirmed the Association’s long-held position on welding repairs to loader cranes and attachments: any weld on a loader crane or attachment structure (or component) should only be undertaken if it is approved by the manufacturer and is in accordance with their given welding specification.

Completed welding repairs must also be subsequently signed off by the manufacturer. This process should be fully documented and followed by completion of the appropriate tests. Should you have any queries regarding this matter, please contact ALLMI.
