As you head into the final lesson of this course, it's important to understand the other costs associated with overhead crane ownership. An overhead crane can be a significant investment—it’s a piece of capital equipment that will improve your production processes, and if properly specified and maintained, can stay in service for a long time. With that being said, if it isn’t properly designed for your application, or you purchase solely based on price, you may run into problems down the road.

In this lesson, we’ll help you identify some of the pitfalls and hidden costs associated with overhead crane ownership and how you can properly budget for training, inspection, and maintenance requirements down the road.
