How a Portable Gantry Crane Can Help Your Productivity

Cranes are used in multiple industries that require lifting and hoisting large machinery. A great alternative to large, permanent systems, a gantry crane is one that utilizes a bridge supported by two or more legs that can still offer a large lifting capacity while still offering mobility. But these too can be unwieldy if your space is limited and you need a highly transportable model.

A gantry crane is made up of the main structure that will straddle the work area or object to be lifted. The main beam that runs between the two end legs will hold the hoist and  trolly frame with a hook and wire rope. This setup allows for more mobility, quick assembly, customization for a variety of applications, and versatility.

Benefits of a Gantry Crane

Gantry cranes are far more versatile than fixed systems. They can be used both indoors and outdoors. While our standard crane is made out of stainless steel, we offer models that are constructed out of a lightweight aluminum. These can be the ideal solution for oversized loads with great lifting capabilities, great portability, and a small footprint allowing loads to get easily into smaller areas and around obstacles.

Lightweight and Adjustable Aluminum Gantries

If space is particularly an issue, lightweight adjustable leg gantries can afford the same lifting capability for smaller areas. Our A-frame gantry cranes have removable/telescoping legs which allow a breakdown that is far quicker than other cranes. This is particularly good for those areas where access is limited. Weighing in at only 36 pounds without the caster extensions, it can easily be hauled in a truck or van. This makes this crane great for maintenance companies and other service companies that need a lightweight and versatile gantry crane.

Easy Transport

This gantry crane can easily be broken down for transport. With a main frame that is only 42.5” high, our 2,000 lb. capability model affords lightweight aluminum construction and 5 position adjustments. Our 4,000 lb. capability model weighs in at only 44 pounds. With this lightweight and highly portable model that can easily be customized to your needs, this is versatility at its finest.
