Our Free Standing Jib Cranes are ideal for heavy duty, high productivity applications and are our most versatile cranes. They are perfect to place underneath large bridge cranes, in open areas where they can serve several work stations, in outdoor applications such as loading docks, or in machining and assembly operations where they can be overlapped with other jibs to provide staged operation.
Our boxed style head assembly allows for installation of the head prior to the boom, reducing required installation clearances and allowing maximum hoist lift. It also increases stability versus common sleeve-over-pipe designs resulting in less deflection. Precision tapered roller bearings provide smooth operation and long life. Full supporting triangular baseplate gussets are used in lieu of struts to minimize deflection as well. Cranes come with bolted movable trolley stops to limit trolley travel.
Free Standing Jib Cranes are pre-engineered for use with powered hoists. A factor of 15% of the jib crane capacity is allowed for the hoist and trolley weight with an additional 25% of the capacity allowed for impact, thus giving full rated capacity use of the jib.
Free Standing Jib Cranes bolt to concrete foundations. Anchor bolts, templates and hoist trolley are not included.
