Emerson have a custom built facility that allows us to maximise the efficiency of our operations.


Our modern workshop allows us to keep our fleet of cranes, HGVs, Vans and plant maintained to the highest standard.

In addition, every care is taken and systems are in place to protect the environment from waste elements. Engine and gear oils are pumped from large storage tanks direct to the vehicle to prevent contamination, waste oils are pumped to a waste oil tank and are removed by contractors for recycling.

Custom Brake Tester

In continued support of our vision of being industry leaders in Health and Safety we have made a huge investment in a heavy duty bespoke brake tester. As a company we are always seeking continual improvement, within our workshop we have installed this testing facility to ensure the most safety effective methods of testing are used. We have installed the brake tester as best practice measures plus putting us ahead of the industry pre-empting the long anticipated implementation of MOT on mobile cranes.

The new brake tester is the 1st of its kind to be supplied in the UK, specifically designed for the testing of cranes and commercial trucks being able to test up to 20 tons per axle, the tester uses MAHA patented technology, has a wireless tablet control for one operative testing and has a 4 wheel drive testing control with a user friendly interface.

Tyre Service Bay

At Emerson we pride ourselves on being self-sufficient in all areas of our work wherever possible. Tyres are a constant headache with punctures on the motorway or on site and when this occurs “out of normal hours” it can prove difficult to contact tyre companies to attend machines or lorries. To resolve this, at Emerson we have a policy of stocking a large selection of tyres and wheels for all our vehicles “made up” and ready to go at a moment’s notice with the company’s devoted mobile tyre repair van complete with built-in compressor.

On return to depot, the punctured tyre is immediately stripped using our state of the art tyre changing machine, once the tyre has been rolled-up to the machine there is no more manual handling; the machine does it all. The tyre is repaired, replaced, re-inflated and the pressure monitored for the following few days to ensure there are no other leaks. Once we are happy it meets our high-standard, the tyre is placed “in stock” ready to be used again.

Custom Wash Bay

We have a dedicated steam clean area with a drainage system designed to separate oils and greases from the waste water. The oils and greases are disposed of separately by trusted contractors. Our cranes are regularly degreased and thoroughly cleaned to allow for regular inspections before going out on hire. The wash down bay is used also prior to servicing of our vehicles and prior to MOTs of commercial vehicles.
