Following the designated lubrication procedures is important in ensuring maximum crane lifetime and utilization.
The procedures and lubrication charts in this section include information on the types of lubricants to be used, the
location of the lubrication points, the frequency of lubrication, and other information.
The service intervals specified are for normal operation where moderate temperature, humidity, and atmospheric
conditions prevail. In areas of extreme conditions, the service periods and lubrication specifications should be
altered to meet existing conditions.
