Features of portable gantry cranes
One of the best things about this type of crane is that it is mobile. You can take it to the places that you need thanks to the wheels. The wheels are generally high quality. However, they are for indoor use. When you are using a gantry crane check to see that the wheels are in good shape and that the locking mechanisms on them are working. The cranes tend to have heavy-duty construction so they can work as a stable platform when you are moving heavy pieces of equipment.
How portable gantry cranes work
The gantry crane provides you with a sturdy and stable platform so that you can lift large and heavy equipment and pieces of machinery. Even though there are wheels on the portable gantry crane, you need to realize that they are not for moving large pieces of equipment you have on the crane. When you are using the crane, lock your wheels in place so that it doesn’t roll away, and then hook up your lifting mechanism to the device. Lift the item and place it on another platform or skates, for example.
