Heavy Lifting for Small Spaces

Jib cranes shine when they are installed in an individual workstation. Whether you’re maintaining an engine, moving materials between conveyor belts, or trying to move any heavy equipment within a small workspace, the jib crane is one of the best material handling solutions.  

Jib cranes typically rotate 360° and are most commonly used during production. But, there are many ways that a jib crane can help a business. The feature that makes the jib crane most unique is the versatility within an individual workstation. Jib cranes can perform a variety of both delicate and heavy-duty tasks. The reason they work nicely for an individual area is because they are relatively small, but they still have a high level of maneuverability.  Since a jib can be mounted to either the floor or the wall of a factory, they are very useful when space is tight.   

Jibs are perfect for industrial warehouses, steel mills, and boat yards. Almost all models of our jib crane provide 360° rotation of items up to 5 tons. Some jibs only rotate 270° because they are mounted to the wall. Even though wall-mounted jib cranes can only support a maximum of 2,000 pounds, their impressive lifting capacities and compact structure can be used for a variety of material handling and production tasks in unusual places.  

Read the list below for the different types and capacities of jib cranes that we offer. The standard models have a maximum capacity of 5 tons, but, we have engineered jibs that can lift up to 15 tons. If you have a custom order for crane specifications, our sales specialists will be happy to help you with your needs.
