Jib Crane

Jib Crane

Jib cranes are used to move objects in a 180° rotation or a 360° rotation. They’re best used for applications where you need to “hand off” a load from one work area to another. Any hoist and trolley can be easily attached to the beam.    

Gantry Crane

Gantry cranes are portable, allowing you to move it wherever you need to lift. All gantry cranes on Hoist Zone have steel swivel casters with brakes. Just like with jib cranes, any of Hoist Zone’s hoists or trolleys can be added to gantry cranes.
