One of WHECO’s customers had an incident where the cab on their crane was severely damaged on a project. The cab was actually ripped from the superstructure, causing damage not only to the cab but to all the wiring and hydraulic components that attached to the cab.
The lead time to order a new cab was such that they contacted WHECO for help.
The cab and superstructure were shipped to WHECO’s Richland facility where each part from the damaged cab was removed and assessed to determine whether it was suitable for reuse or if a new piece from the OEM should be ordered. WHECO also custom-made several wiring harnesses—some with over 30-plus wires.
In addition to the cab, there was structural damage to the lower structure that was repaired with the approval of Manitowoc.
