This results in fantastic piece of workshop lifting equipment that can be tailored to our customers requirements. We offer many options of this crane with safe working loads up to 2000kg. The advantage of this type of lift is that the lift is true vertical, ie, there is no 'Ark' when the material is lifted or lowered making it easier to judge the best position for the lift; secondly, the hook will go much lower than our standard floor cranes and will raise as high as you need! all achievable because we will make each crane to your required maximum lifting height. he lifting action is similar to that of a fork lift truck. We have designed and manufactured a carriage to accept either fork tines or a Jib lifting arm. All our floor cranes are bespoke made to order and therefore we can offer a design service to meet customers individual requirements.
