Cracked telescopic boom from a Telehandler

This is a telescopic boom from a JCB Telehandler 540.

As you can see it has a crack on the underside of the boom, indicating that the equipment has been misused (eg for compacting skips).

Our engineer issued a defect. If it had been kept in use it would have led to a catastrophic failure of the boom and its load with potentially dire consequences.

Advice from our Engineer Surveyor… “Use the equipment as intended by the manufacturer.”

If you are concerned about the condition of your lifting equipment, immediately suspend operation and get in touch. Our technical team will do whatever they can to advise and get you back up and running as soon as possible.
