Gorbel Freestanding Jib Cranes


  • Precision tapered roller bearings in top pivot and trunnion assemblies provide smooth operation and long life.
  • Full supporting triangular base plate gussets are used (in lieu of struts) to minimize crane deflection, thus making it easier to accurately position loads.
  • Independent head assembly installed separately from the boom for easier installation.
  • Recessed bearing assembly allows greatly reduced clearances needed for installation.
  • Bolted head/boom connection permits separate installation and provides maximum lift for the hoist since it can be installed very close to the underside of the lower ceiling obstruction for greater headroom.
  • In-head, totally enclosed, bottom entry collector assembly allows for the option of easily adding power to the hoist for 360 degree rotation at the time of or after purchase.
