Palfinger Truck-Mounted Cranes Servicing

Great news! After an intense vetting by Palfinger NZ, Thwaites Diesel have been appointed the service agency for PALFINGER truck-mounted cranes, tail lifts and other allied equipment for the Nelson and Tasman regions.

Maintenance and regular servicing extend the service life of the truck-mounted crane and ensures maximum safety. This pays off. Preventative measures increase availability. The various inspections required as part of the prescribed annual checks on the machine also need to be performed and documented correctly.

Thwaites are experts in PALFINGER truck mounted crane and tail lift repairs and have a well-equipped workshop in Nelson to conduct a full range of maintenance and repairs. We can rebuild and reseal all cylinders/rams, fix broken pipes, fix leaking hoses, renew seals and bushes in the main slew, top up hydraulic oil. You name it we can do it! We can take care of your yearly certification for you either on its own or whilst performing a service at the same time to maximise your down time.

Getting the best from your vehicle is crucial to your business. It is not always possible to bring PALFINGER Cranes and equipment to the workshop. Sometimes, it is not actually necessary either. That’s because the Thwaites service team are mobile. Our expert breakdown and repairs team is constantly on hand to minimise the downtime of your crane.

Our service team will travel to your construction site equipped with all the special tools and common spare parts needed to perform maintenance and repairs. Naturally, they also bring with them the necessary expertise, so they know exactly what they need to do. 

Our Service Centre has extending operating hours: Monday-Friday 8am to 5pm; Saturday 8am to 12pm.

All our products and services are guaranteed.
