Aerial Bucket Truck & Lift Repair Service
Milling Technologies is a leader in the business of inspecting,
servicing and repairing insulated aerial bucket and truck
lifts. From 28 foot non-insulated units to giant state of the art
Brontos Sky Lifts, we service the majority of makes, models and
sizes. No matter what region of Florida or the Caribbean you are in,
we can service your aerial bucket lift needs each and every day of
the year. From simple leaks to major overhauls, we have the
facility and know how to keep your unit safe and operational.
We have Terex Utilities factory trained personnel
on staff with experience on practically the entire product line.
In addition, we are an authorized service center for Altec and
ETI brand aerial lifts. We also service Bronto, NorStar,
Load-All, Telsta, Teco, Posi Plus, Condor, Versalift, Skylift
and SDP aerial lifts. In fact, we can troubleshoot and repair
almost any unit still in service today as long as it is
structurally safe. We also stock non-conductive hose as well has
hundreds of seals for cylinders and valves.
Our field capabilities are what sets us apart from the
competition. Our service truck has an 8K auto crane, portable
hose crimper, 400 amp welder, flow meters and pressure gauges
allowing us to accomplish almost any task in the field. We have
changed rotation bearings on Altec LRV55’s and Jaraff trimmer
units in the field. We routinely replace hoses, and with our
portable crimper our hoses are custom cut to fit with no
troublesome extra long loops hanging about. We also have
certified welders on staff to repair cracks or updates that may
need to be performed.
If your current unit or fleet is looking older than you
like and don’t wish to buy a new unit due to the cost or
problems with new diesel exhaust systems, we can refurbish your
current unit to like new condition. You can get that new look
and reliability for a fraction of the cost.
In addition, we service and support pullers and
tensioners with the same capable service.
Our annual inspections are thorough and detailed. On most
units we pull the pump to inspect the shaft for spline wear.
Another item most inspection companies over look is the rotation
bearing. All bearing manufacturers have wear limits for safe
operation. Ask your current inspection company how they test the
rotation bearing and how do they know that bearing is within
specs? The rotation bearing is like any other ball bearing, the
only thing holding the inner and outer race together are the
balls inside. If the assembly wears enough it will separate and
without warning the unit will fail no matter what. The proactive
knowledge of bearing wear can help predict upcoming costly
Dielectric tests ensure the unit is safe from conducting
electricity to the ground during work with live power. ANSI
states that a dielectric test should be conducted annually or
when any component of the unit that may affect the insulation of
the unit is repaired or replaced. We have the ability to DC test
units up to 100KV in our shop or in the field. If a unit fails
to pass most companies stop working, bill you for their work to
that point and tell you to call them for a retest when you think
you have it fixed. When this occurs during one of our repairs we
try to resolve the problem, which is commonly a simply cleaning
of the insulator and waxing. We then retest, only charging you
for the labor time it took to remedy the situation. If a problem
persist we can assist in getting your unit safe again.
To facilitate convenience, while performing your dielectric
and annual inspections we can also do your DOT inspection as
well. And as always we are glad to conduct minor adjustments to
ensure your unit is safe.
