Stiamo cercando un ispettore di macchine edili usate nell’area del Nord Italia

Se vivete in questa zona e siete alla ricerca di un lavoro, saremmo lieti di sentirvi. Il lavoro consiste nel controllare occasionalmente le condizioni di una macchina edile o di un camion usato. Esistono moduli di rapporto standardizzati e varie istruzioni su come ispezionare una macchina o un veicolo. Quindi non è affatto complicato se si hanno buone conoscenze tecniche. Purtroppo il nostro team non parla italiano. Dovete quindi essere in grado di comunicare con noi in inglese (o tedesco). Se siete interessati, vi preghiamo di inviarci un’e-mail con informazioni sul vostro background professionale e sulle vostre conoscenze in materia di macchine edili. Dovreste anche essere in grado di inviarci le fatture. Avremmo bisogno di un supporto nelle regioni Piemonte, Lombardia, Trentino, Veneto ed Emilia Romagna. Occasionalmente forse anche in Toscana. Potreste essere, ad esempio, i titolari di una piccola impresa di riparazioni o di un’azienda di noleggio di macchine edili. Se potete dedicarci un po’ di tempo per visitare una macchina due o tre volte al mese, sarebbe una buona soluzione. Non possiamo assumerli. Dovrebbe essere un lavoratore autonomo. #opentowork #lavoro #macchina da cantiere

Hvem kan vurdere brugte entreprenørmaskiner?

Der er flere måder at få vurderet brugte entreprenørmaskiner i Europa på. Her er nogle af mulighederne:

Erfarne maskininspektører:

Der findes specialiserede maskininspektører og inspektører i Europa, som kan foretage inspektioner og vurderinger af brugte entreprenørmaskiner. Disse inspektører kan på professionel vis vurdere maskinernes tilstand, værdi og eventuelle skader. I denne henseende er folk som Mevas mere fleksible og billigere end TÜV eller SGS.

Specialiserede maskinhandlere:

Nogle forhandlere af brugte entreprenørmaskiner er specialiseret i vurdering og salg af brugte maskiner. Disse forhandlere kan foretage en vurdering af maskinernes tilstand og værdi og kan også hjælpe med salget af maskinerne. Der er dog ikke tale om en uafhængig vurdering, da en forhandler altid er interesseret i at købe eller sælge!

Uafhængige vurderingsfirmaer:

Der findes virksomheder, der har erfaring med at vurdere større maskinparker eller alle mobile maskiner og køretøjer i bygge- og anlægsvirksomheder. Vurderingsfirmaer som MEVAS kan tilbyde denne service til gode priser.

Uafhængige rådgivere i forbindelse med salg af entreprenørmaskiner:

Der findes uafhængige rådgivere i Europa, som kan hjælpe med vurderingen af brugte entreprenørmaskiner. Disse konsulenter kan foretage en objektiv vurdering af maskinernes tilstand og værdi og kan også hjælpe med at finde købere eller sælgere til maskinerne. Sådanne rådgivere kan også arbejde i forbindelse med forsikringer eller ved salg af en virksomhed. En god måde er også at sælge maskiner gennem en begrænset auktion.

Det er vigtigt, at du vælger en pålidelig og erfaren ekspert til at vurdere dine brugte entreprenørmaskiner. Du kan undersøge forskellige muligheder og læse anmeldelser og referencer, inden du vælger en ekspert til at udføre arbejdet for dig. Desuden er det vigtigt at beslutte, om du ønsker at kende den aktuelle værdi eller genanskaffelsesværdien.

Mevas har fået mange gode anmeldelser og er vurderet til 5,0 stjerner på Google.

Ils se spécialisent dans la construction de routes, de bâtiments et d’infrastructures. Cela vous tiendra probablement très occupé. Notre société a été fondée pour vous faciliter l’expertise des machines à vendre ou à acheter. Vous pouvez vous concentrer sur votre tâche principale et nous confier l’analyse de l’état des machines.

Inspection des machines d’occasion

Une petite partie de notre service concerne les rapports d’évaluation. La partie beaucoup plus importante, cependant, est l’inspection des machines d’occasion pour les acheteurs et les vendeurs. Vous pouvez juger de chez vous si une machine est en bon état. Vaut-il la peine d’acheter ou faut-il laisser la machine là où elle est ?

Prestations en France

Notre siège social se trouve en Allemagne, d’où la société est également gérée. Cependant, nous avons des techniciens disponibles sur différents sites en France pour évaluer les machines. Cela nous permet d’offrir aux clients en France l’inspection et la détermination de la valeur marchande actuelle de ces machines à des prix raisonnables. Un monsieur en France qui vend des machines d’occasion a pensé que ce serait une bonne idée d’utiliser notre nom Mevas-France pour annoncer ses services. C’est pourquoi nous tenons à souligner : Notre entreprise n’est pas impliquée dans le commerce, l’achat ou la vente de machines. Notre seul service est l’expertise.

Käytettyjen koneiden tarkastukset Suomessa

Jos olet ostamassa käytettyä konetta, kuten kaivinkonetta, pyöräkuormaajaa tai nivellettyä kippiautoa, on luultavasti hyvä ajatus tarkastuttaa se asianmukaisesti. Jos kone on lähelläsi, se on helppoa. Lähetät korjaamon työnjohtajan tai mekaanikkosi testaamaan konetta. Sitten voit neuvotella hinnasta. Mutta jos kone on kaukana, jos yrityksessä on liikaa töitä, voit myös palkata ulkopuolisen asiantuntijan. Varsinkin kun kone ei ole Suomessa vaan ulkomailla, siitä tulee mielenkiintoista. Silloin on halvempaa saada asiantuntija paikalle ja se on myös nopeampaa.

Kuka voi arvioida raskaita rakennuskoneita ulkomailla?

MEVAS-tiimi on läsnä yli 20 maassa. Teknikot on koulutettu käytettyjen koneiden tarkastukseen. Tarkastamme kaivinkoneet, pyöräkuormaajat, murskaimet, dumpperit, nosturit ja porauslaitteet louhintaan tai maanrakennukseen. Tarvitsetko ammattimaisen tarkastuksen tai arvonmäärityksen? Onko kyseessä rakennuskone vai kokonainen kalusto? Se ei ole ongelma. Me hoidamme sen.

Mitä maksaa rakennuskoneita koskeva asiantuntijalausunto?

Asiantuntijalausunnon hinta riippuu eri tekijöistä. Kuinka suuri rakennuskone on? Millainen kone se on? Missä rakennusajoneuvo sijaitsee? Ja sitten on tärkeää tietää: Tarvitsetko tietoa vain kunnosta vai pitäisikö myös määrittää nykyinen arvo? Jos lähetät meille tiedustelun, saat tarjouksen ja esimerkki kertomuksen muutaman tunnin kuluessa. Sen jälkeen voit päättää, haluatko palkata meidät arvioijaksi.

Tunnemme hyvin: Caterpillar, Hitachi, Komatsu, Volvo CE, Liebherr & Terex. Tarkastamme ajoneuvonosturit, tiehöylät, yksirumpujyrsimet, kaivurit, paalutuskoneet, leikkurit, pyöräkaivukoneet, materiaalinkäsittelykoneet, kippiautot ja kaikki muut maansiirtolaitteet.

Where to buy a CAT-14-pin cable?

Where can I buy Caterpillar diagnostic cable with the 14-pin plug?

Some recent machines of Caterpillar have a new 14-pin socket for the diagnostic adapter. One option is to purchase from CAT dealer a new cable in a heavy version for almost 250$. Another option is to order it from Mevas. We have bought a package of adapter cables for heavy equipment diagnostic adapter CAT-ET 3. The cable is an addition to the current diagnostic cable with 9-pin Deutsch socket. The cable we are selling is connecting the diagnostic adapter with the socket in the machine.

How much does the cable cost?

We are selling the cable for a fee of 39 Euro plus shipping. If you buy more than one there can be a slight discount. The cable is good for any Caterpillar excavator of the F-Series, it works as well for wheel loaders of M-Series, bulldozers of K-Series and some other machines.

How to order the 14-pin cable?

You can buy online if you just want one cable. Just visit our online store. If you need more than one contact us via our contact form. You can also contact us if you have further questions about the technology of machine diagnostics. We have over 20 years of experience in the diagnosis of construction machinery. Our technicians analyse the condition of many different makes, such as Komatsu, Hitachi, Cummins, Volvo and Liebherr.

What can I do with a Caterpillar diagnostic cable?

What is this cable for? It is part of the so-called Electronic Technician from Caterpillar. You need this tool to make settings on the machine. With the associated diagnostic adapter and software, you can check and change all settings in the machine’s electronic control units. The engineer can check the machine for error codes and upload files for the injectors, for example. As already described, many newer machines have a new plug connection. Unfortunately, the old cable with only nine pins no longer works on these machines. There is a combined cable with both 9 pins and 14 pins available from the Caterpillar dealer. Unfortunately, this cable is relatively expensive with a purchase price of about $250.

Oil analysis for heavy equipment

What is oil sampling and how to do it?

Analyzing the oils used in construction machinery can be useful because you can read information about wear from the contents of the used oil. To do this, a mechanic or technician uses a very clean container and a pump to remove oil, e.g. from the engine, from the hydraulic circuit or from the gearbox. The extracted oils are sent to a certified laboratory. There, the lubricants are analyzed for their ingredients using various methods. It can be used to determine whether there are increased levels of silicon, sulphur, copper, coolant or other trace elements in the oil.

Heavy Machinery Oil sampling

When is it reasonable to analyse oils of used heavy equipment?

An analysis of the existing oils only makes sense if you have an approximate idea of ​​how long the oil was in use. If the oil has only recently been changed, an analysis of the condition is not very useful. There are then too few analyzable particles in the oil. If the oil used is much older than permitted, i.e. the change intervals have been significantly exceeded, the values ​​will also be incorrect. But if the oil is in a normal change cycle, you can read a lot of information from the trace elements. It is therefore important to know whether the prescribed maintenance intervals on the construction machine have been observed.

What influence have working hours and temperatures to oil condition?

As already described above, it is important to know or to be able to estimate the service life of the existing oils. And to get meaningful results, it is necessary to warm up the machine. Otherwise there will be many particles, e.g. deposited on the bottom of the oil pan or in the filter. The oil must therefore be vigorously moved and the viscosity increased in order to obtain meaningful results.

What info does an oil sample report contain and what does it tell us?

A professional laboratory for the analysis of construction machine oils usually provides us with an interpretation of the analyzed values. Too much silicon means dirt gets into the machine’s systems and you have to look at where and how dirt gets into the system. If coolant is found in the engine oil, there is a problem in the cooling system. If traces of aluminum are found in the transmission oil, one can conclude that there is increased wear in some components. The same applies to the presence of chromium, copper or magnesium. As soon as we have the results of an oil analysis, our technicians will advise you and describe the possible causes. A hint is given on what to do to avoid early problems.

By the way, to guarantee high quality of our oil analysis we work on this sector with the lab of Zeppelin Baumaschinen which is the CAT dealer for several countries in Europe.
