MANUAL - Hybrid Knockdown Floor Crane, Uses Legs or Counterweight for Stability. Many Options inc 20 Degree Rotation (under load) - Range to 2000kg
Parallel Leg Floor Crane With Rotating Jib Arm Changing Into a Counterbalance. Top quality made here in the UK
Hybrid design - Rotating horizontal jib arm: The vertical column can be rotated through 180 degrees creating two operational positions; as a standard parallel workshop floor crane or as a counterbalanced floor crane. In both operational positions and when the crane is under load the jib arm will rotate by up to 20 degrees total; up to 10 degrees right and left of centre.
Before used as a counterbalance floor crane the weights must be fitted to the chassis legs. The crane can rotate under load by up to 20 degrees in the forward facing position or when reversed (turned 180 degrees) in the rear facing counterbalanced position (i.e. up to 10 degrees right or left of the crane centre line, this is when the horizontal arm is parallel with the chassis legs). As a safety feature the Jib arm will not rotate under load beyond 20 degrees in forward or reverse position, this is achieved by fitting jib rotation stops that positively lock at the maximum permissible rotation when a load is applied to the hook, preventing misuse.
The crane can only be used by competent persons complying with the operation and user instructions.

Floor Cranes With Spark Resistant Features / Explosion proof.
For Floor cranes to be used in potentially explosive areas / atmospheres such as Zone 1 or 2, SELS can include any anti-sparking features that our customers specify - this will increase its anti-sparking properties and therefore make the crane more suitable for use in a potentially explosive environment!
SELS will not to take the responsibility of supplying our floor cranes described as 'spark proof' as this is ‘too broad’ a term. We believe that total compliance is probably impossible because of the mechanical operation and movement of a floor crane; i.e. we cannot offer a 100% guarantee that no part of the assembly is capable of generating a spark which could ignite a flame! IE: SELS will supply / manufacture cranes with anti sparking features to our customer’s requirements though will not certified them as sparkproof / explosion proof. Our cranes have been successfully supplied to customers in the offshore Oil and Gas industry in the UK on this basis.
