1k 2k & 4k T Frame

From 250 to 4,000 lb. cap. Aluminum T-Frame Portable Gantry Cranes

What makes our T Frame model aluminum gantry style worth looking at?  It is their portability. Just about every gantry manufacturer out there makes what we refer to as fixed leg A frame gantry crane… including us.  That’s fine if the gantries home is going to be a shop or you have a large rigging truck to transport it from job to job.  An A Frame gantry base is approximately 5’ tall by 5’ wide.  Our T Frame gantry base widths range in length from 48” to 68” long.  BUT here is what sets our T Frame models apart.  It is our base height.  Our largest model (4K cap) base height is only a 45 ½” tall.  What does that mean to you?  It means our 4T810 model gantry which has an 8’ long I beam, 10 foot max height under beam; 4,000 lb cap gantry can fit into your 4 x 8 pickup bed with a lock top or even a Dodge Caravan style service van.  An A Frame gantry would just not fit in that same amount of space. You may now be thinking that I can get a fold up style A Frame that would fit.  Not in a 4,000 lb cap. For those of you that want to keep your gantry secured while on a job or overnight in a hotel parking lot waiting for tomorrow’s job, this is the ideal gantry crane for you.  The shorter base height for portability and easier assembly and our optional cart assemblies are why EC&MW specifically designed the T Frame portable gantry crane with service technicians in mind.
