Supplying the right Jib Crane for your needs

125kg to 10tonne.Again there are many different types available, either wall or floor mounted providing different slew angles of 180° to 360°. Fully powered versions offer smooth jib rotation, hoist travel and lift operation. When access becomes awkward a knuckle jib may provide the answer, having an elbow in the jib arm it allows even greater manoeuvrability.

Hoists for Jib Cranes

Almost any chain or wire rope hoist can be fitted to a Jib crane but bear in mind that in many cases a chain hoist will be preferable especially with manual slewing.

The hoist can be fitted at one end of the Jib arm or it can travel along the length of the Jib arm by means of a manual or powered travel trolley.

Lifting Davits

Lifting davits or davit arms are in effect a small jib crane, usually up to SWL 1 tonne, and are typically lightweight and portable.

Usually they fit into a floor or wall mounted socket and can easily be carried by only one man from one socket to another.

Davits of this type are used extensively in the water industry mostly for lifting and handling pumps and motors for repair and maintenance.
