Jib Crane – Tension Braced

This crane puts the economy back into this column mounted unit.
This inexpensive jib crane provides a fast and easy to install solution
to a localized material handling problem. Our unique design follows
the same engineering criteria as all of our quality products. Easy to
install fittings simply bolt to the column and beam. This “friction free”
180° rotating crane can also be pushed out of the way when not in use.


  • A. Fittings are heavy duty steel weldments, jig welded to insure proper bearing alignment.
  • B. Axles are Grade 8 bolts with lock washers and nuts. Permanently lubricated bronze shoulders bushings are used.
  • All units up through 2 ton are supplied with a tension bar, factory cut and drilled for proper length. This design feature is especially attractive when a kit is ordered. No need to buy and then thread large, round bar stock – you only need to drill holes to build one of our units.
  • C. Fitting is bolted to top flange of ‘I’ beam, which allows for single location “leveling down” of the beam if an adjustment is required.
  • D. American Standard ‘I’ beams, selected to properly handle all imposed forces and loads.
  • E. Welded end stops provide a positive and permanent hoist / trolley stop allowing for the maximum in trolley travel.
