Spanco Jib Cranes lift and transport materials in semi circles (180 degrees) or full circles (360 degrees) around their support structure. These jib cranes can also be used to “hand off” materials to adjacent workstations. Hoists, manipulators, or balancers can be installed on the jibs’ booms. Our articulating jib cranes have booms with two axes so they can reach around obstacles, such as columns. All of our jibs quickly fold out of the way of overhead cranes.

  • Spanco Jib Cranes maximize space utilization: Wall-mounted jib cranes, ceiling or wall-mounted articulating jib cranes, and wall-traveling jib cranes require no floor space. We offer models with unrivaled clearance, both above and under the boom.
  • On some designs, you can use your building’s existing columns or overhead beams to mount our jib cranes, saving you money.
  • Freestanding jibs can be weatherized for outdoor use.
  • Capacities: from 100 pounds to 10,000 pounds standard and up to 30,000 pounds depending on span and jib series, with hundreds of pre-engineered models.

Mast-Style Jib Cranes

Spanco Mast-Style Jib Cranes provide 360-degree crane rotation and can be rotated manually or by power. They bolt to floor and building’s steel beams, eliminating costly special foundations.

How To Choose The Right Jib Crane

  • Area of rotation: Freestanding and mast-style jib cranes offer 360-degree rotation; wall-mounted cranes offer 180-degree rotation.
  • Height Under Boom: The distance from floor to underside of jib crane’s boom is the height under boom. Also factor in hoist size and lifting height needed.
  • Overall jib crane height: Factor in any attachments, such as electrical entry, so that the crane will be free from overhead obstructions.
  • Actual working span needed: The working (or hook) distance is roughly the length of the boom minus ½ trolley length at each end.
  • Power requirements: Will you need power for your jib crane’s motor drive, its trolley, its hoist, or all three? Will the power supply be electric or air? Bottom or top entry? Indoor or outdoor use?
  • Installation: Your Spanco distributor can review your application and, together with our engineering team, make expert recommendations.
