Power Lift and/or Travel Counter-balance Floor Cranes. Stainless Steel Options Available. Can be made to customer specification

These options of floor crane provide Hydraulic powered lifting (12v DV Hydraulic power pack) and electric drive motors for effortless propulsion of goods and equipment making for an extremely maneuverable version of what would otherwise be very heavy and awkward. There are many additional features that can be added to the design to convert the standard powered counterbalance option / range of floor cranes into your perfect manual handling assistant. They can be supplied fully manufactured from stainless steel.

Note: The pictures shown are our artists impression only and are only indicative of our capability. (for display purposes only) All cranes are made individually and the the design may be subject to change according to your required specification; the pictures are not to scale, general arrangement drawings will be issued for approval on receipt of your order.

Can the additional cost to power all motions be justified?

  • Greater efficiency
  • Increased productivity
  • Massively reduced manual handling
  • Reduced possibility of user injury
  • User friendly - encourages user compliance and willingness to use the lifting equipment supplied to made the process safer
  • For occasional use the additional cost may not be justified though if you are lifting and moving heavy loads with your counterbalanced floor crane or if you are using it often or repeatedly then power lift may not only save time it will also increase productivity and reduce or eliminate the possibility of manual handling injury or repetitive strain injury.

Warning: Ensure that all components are attached and no damage is visible to the unit before using.

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.


LiftingSafety Review:
Counterbalanced floor cranes are very heavy items of lifting equipment and therefore they can be a difficult to handle (manoeuvre) especially with greater lifting capacity cranes. This is the reason that power drive on a counter weight crane is particularly appropriate and will eliminate the possibility of any manual handling injuries. Power drive and power lift will speed up the lift process and it can be argued will make the lift safer. We can supply as power lift - power drive or power lift and manual manoeuvre.
