CARE Preventive/Predictive Maintenance program

Preventive maintenance program tailored to your operations

The CARE program has been designed to improve your equipment safety and productivity with preventive maintenance inspections, compliance inspections where applicable, routine maintenance, and TRUCONNECT® Remote Monitoring

We tailor the CARE program to your operations, taking into account the equipment, its usage, operating environment, duty class, service history, manufacturer's recommendations and statutory requirements. 

All inspections and maintenance work is performed by trained and qualified Konecranes inspectors employing our proprietary Risk and Recommendation Method

To support fast and reliable decision-making regarding maintenance, our inspection findings, together with prioritized risks and recommended actions, are reviewed with you on a regular basis and your service reports, maintenance information and TRUCONNECT data is available at any time on

Planned maintenance powered by experience and technology 

MAINMAN Planned Maintenance is the foundation for the CARE Program. It is a maintenance service that provides you with a baseline for planning, tracking, reporting and maintenance consultations.  

It is unique in the overhead crane industry and is designed to provide an in-depth picture of the condition of your equipment as well as routine maintenance work, such as adjusting and lubricating, with the intent of satisfying manufacturers’ maintenance recommendations. This service includes a preventive maintenance inspection, visual checks, routine maintenance, and operational and functional testing of your lifting equipment. 

In the United States and Canada, our MAINMAN Assessment is the foundation for the CARE Program. This assessment is designed to provide an in-depth picture of the condition of your equipment while simultaneously fulfilling the requirements of your periodic compliance inspection in the U.S. and Canada. 


Making smart predictions to further optimize your maintenance activities 

Incorporating predictive maintenance elements – such as Oil Analysis or Gear Case Inspection – as part of a CARE program can further optimize maintenance activities, reduce unplanned downtime and improve equipment safety, productivity and lifecycle value.


Four other service programs to fit a variety of needs

While the CARE program is our most popular, you may need something different. We offer four other service programs that range from an inspection-based program to full scope outsourcing.
