Folding Leg – Still In Production Available end of 2018
An old style gantry with a new style concept.
With this new style concept, there is no need to bolt and unbolt the leg braces. This design uses the same concept as a folding ladder, but with the added safety of a clip pin. The pins ensure that the legs will not fold up when rolling the gantry. Setup therefore is much faster and hassle free. Our model has the added convenience of no loose nuts and bolts to contend with or brace rails. All of the folding leg parts are protected from wear and galling by using plastic washers for longevity.
We added an extra safety feature to ensure the gantry stays secure while rolling. Not only is there a clip pin in the folding mechanism, but we also pin the legs with a lynch pin. Gantry construction consists of 6061 T6 and 7075 structural aluminum. All hardware is grade 5 with the use of nylon insert nuts. The Colson Endura casters all have precision roller bearings, (4) position locks with a 2″ wide crown wheel. Side brakes are available.
In its folded state, we utilize the same leg pins and lynch pins to lock the legs in its folded position. Therefore eliminating the need for straps to keep from opening until needed. Gantry folded footprint is 20.5″ wide 57″ high and 7.25″ deep.
When in the folded position, you utilize the frame assembly bolts as a handle to roll the gantry to and from your service vehicle.
Not to scale!
Our universal top plate (although originally designed back in 1997 as an option available for out standard model gantry) will be standard on all our Folding Leg model cranes. This will allow the user the option to use a 6″, 8″ or 10″ American standard aluminum I-beam as well as 4″x 4″ and 4″ x 8″ square/rectangle tubes for top running trolleys for better hook to ground heights (see our line of top running trolleys).
Although we are not the lightest cranes on the market, we like to think be build the strongest of this style. We use a 6061 T6 square 4″ x 4″ x .125″ wall tube for our columns. This is the strongest in the industry that we are aware of to date for a 1,000 lb. cap crane. With 35 inches of adjustability in 5″ increments and max height of 12′ 5″ under beam (again another first) . This gantry will provide you with everything needed in a 1,000 lb. cap. aluminum crane.
