The mobile jib cranes are not fixed (bolted) to the floor; instead they use counterbalance weight to support the lifted load at the hook. Counterbalanced weight lifting cranes can be used when the floor conditions are not suitable for a traditional jib crane to be installed or when supporting steelwork is not of sufficient strength; such as vertical RSJ's in a building or workshop. They are also often used when one crane is used to service many processes.
