Originally designed by our sister company Hospital Rigging Supply, Inc. back in 1999, our all-terrain portable gantry cranes were a huge hit in the U.K. It took several years before other U.K., as well as U.S., companies started copying our designs (with slight variations). None of the other companies to date provide the important extras like levels, cranks down jacks or lifting handles like EC&MW models. Their idea was to try to break into the large UK market. Teleshore UK Limited saw the potential of our unique aluminum gantry crane for cemetery repair. To date Teleshore UK Limited is still the leader in cemetery repair, additionally providing instructional classes as well. They have in-excess of over 250 of our all-terrain gantry cranes in use throughout the England, Ireland and Scotland. They are working towards fulfilling the needs of the Canadian market as well.
EC&MW, Inc. now builds these portable gantry cranes to the exact original design. As a matter of fact, we have even added a few new custom ideas to the original design. These portable gantry cranes are constructed of 6061 T6 structural aluminum and have adjustable metal support legs and pads for easy leveling on most terrains, making our design much more versatile than tripod gantries. It was specifically designed with 8.5″ diameter pneumatic tires for easy maneuvering over uneven surfaces. Its structural aluminum construction makes it lightweight, yet very strong and extremely versatile for outdoor use.
Customization is not an issue. As we pride ourselves on our custom portable gantry cranes, we have designed and manufactured several all-terrain hybrid models to meet the unique needs our customers. From rolling gantry while loaded to adjustable height leveling foot pads. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org of call 775-778-9112 so our team can work with you to fulfill your unique lifting requirements.
Uses: Cemetery headstone repair. Why: Able to work in pretty much any environment. Lightweight for easy assembly. 8 1/2″ air casters makes maneuverability a breeze, so as not to upset other nearby grave sites. Breaks down into small pieces quickly for great portability.
Uses: Agriculture: Farm implement repair. Why: The aluminum structure makes it lightweight and ideal for repairing farm or construction equipment on site. With the air casters, it can easily roll (without a load) to straddle the equipment needing repair and then easily leveled for use. This means it can pretty much work on any terrain or normal incline.
Standard All -Terrain Gantry Features:
- Horizontal & bulls-eye bubble levels for quick leveling with kick plates
- Lightweight 6061 T6 series structural aluminum construction with steel leg risers
- 300 variable height combinations for easy height leveling
- Adjustable leg widths
- 8 1/2″ Dia Air casters
Notice the pipe stands and height adjustment columns are at different height locations. This demo-straights is ability to work on compound slopes.
Optional All-Terrain Gantry Features:
- Hybrid roll while loaded models
- Height to 14′ under beam
- Crank down jacks
- Tilting or swivel sand pads
- Custom size I-beam lengths to 30′ (depending upon capacity)
- Custom heights upon request
- Optional hoists, trolleys and custom slings
Note: Because these models were designed to be level, and used in an outdoor environment, they are NOT able to pick or carry a load while on the tires/wheels. Platform stands must be used with adequate shoring on penetrable surfaces before any lifting attempts. Gantry should NEVER be used when conditions are wet/muddy or when unstable ground conditions exist or are expected. Inquire about roll while load models at Sales@ECMW.com or call 775-778-9112
Our gantries come standard with a horizontal level mounted on each side of I-beam (shown above) and a bulls-eye level mounted on each base (shown below). Why: Trust me! You wouldn’t want your load shifting as soon as it leaves the ground and uncontrollably rolling down your beam with no way of stopping it. Having the crane not level might be well and fine for a 500 pound lift, but certainly not for a 6,000 pound headstone. Yes! We have manufactured all-terrain gantry cranes for those larger headstones.
Optional Stainless Steel Lifting Handle
For ease of operation setup and leveling, this handle can be added as an option to our standard model.
Wonder why we use round pipe instead of square tubing? It gives us the ability of providing you with 1″on center hole spacing’s by simply rotating the pipe 90 degrees while remaining in the gantry. With 1″ pipe spacing’s and our unique base and top cap height adjusting, it provides you with literally hundreds of different height configurations. These combinations make gantry crane leveling easy, even with the shortest of I beam lengths.
6,000 lb. cap. custom hybrid All-Terrain Gantry with cranks down jacks also capable of rolling on a solid surface fully loaded.
3,000 lb. cap. custom All-Terrain Gantry with pipe Stands
6,000 lb. cap. are A-Frame Styles and are built to suit customers requirements. They are available in 8′ to 20′ spans and 12′ under beam heights.
