ROPS is the key Western Australian partner of Palfinger vehicle-loading cranes, fitting and servicing, as well as supplying spare parts of the popular brand.
Palfinger has been manufacturing cranes since 1964 and its factories employ more than 6200 people worldwide. Palfinger Cranes have been on the Australian market since August 1977 and ROPS Engineering is proud to be associated with such a quality product. Palfinger Cranes are manufactured to the stringent European standard — EN12999, class H1-B3. The Epsilon Scrap Handling & Logging cranes are designed and built to H1-B4 specifications. Factory technicians visit twice a year for stringent Palfinger-specific training. To maintain the Palfinger cranes, a large array of parts are held in stock while others can be accessed overnight for fast turnaround.
It’s not just Palfinger cranes that ROPS Engineering specialises in, but all cranes, big or small. If it comes to refurbishing, the cranes are stripped back to the metal, shot blasted, resprayed to clients’ branding and fitted on to the previous truck or a new vehicle.
Damaged cranes can also be repaired and re-certified in a fast turnaround, further reducing down time.
Normal tray trucks can be converted to support cranes by either lengthening the chassis or shortening the tray. Customisation is a key word at ROPS Engineering with almost every request catered for in the optimum time.
The quick turnaround time, because of the one-stop concept, means vehicles are not off the road for long and are returned in excellent shape.
Other vehicle modifications are also catered for, from adding extra axles, turntables and fabrication of bodies. As vehicles age and are subjected to the harsh Western Australian conditions, there comes a time when refurbishment is financially viable and we are there to assist. We can help you prolong the life of your vehicle and when you have finished with it, the resale value should be that much higher.
ROPS Engineering also specialises in turnkey project management and fleet management.
