A New England company specializing in the installation and repair of Commercial Skylights and Space Frames has a project installing 400 feet of skylights on two sides of a building that is 40 feet off the ground. Initially they were looking to have a rigging company supply a crane to move up material and other items needed to do the job. However, the end customer informed them that they could not store material or tools on the roof overnight. This phase of the project will take 2 months to complete. It did not take long to see all profits quickly evaporating from the cost of having to rent a crane 5 days a week for 2 months.
ATI’s Portable Jib Crane is self-supportive and can be used anytime, any place, indoors or outdoors, without installation. The Portable Jib Crane has a counterweight built in to the base for stability and fork pockets for portability. With the use of Air Technical Industries Portable Jib Crane they were able to have the rigging company make two lifts instead of multiple lifts over the course of 2 months. They lifted ATI’s workhorse crane the Super Master Portable Jib Crane up to the roof. Once the Portable Jib Crane was placed in the desired position they no longer needed the rental crane until the project was over. Instead, they used the Portable Jib Crane along with a powered trolley and hoist to move material and tools up to the roof. At the end of the day they would use the crane to move the same material and tools back down for storage overnight. This simple solution saved them thousands of dollars off their bottom line and in the end they actually owned the Portable Jib Crane. Which meant, the next time they use it their profits would be even larger. One crane that can be used at many locations adds great versatility and savings.
The crane features a 360° boom rotation manually operated and there is an optional powered boom rotation available. The crane can be equipped with a manual hoist or electrical powered hoist, 110 volt single phase or 240-480 volts, 3 phase. For hazardous areas, air powered pneumatic spark proof hoists are available.
Portable Jib Cranes are built of heavy duty industrial welded steel construction for safe and long lasting use. The rotation is on a heavy duty Timken roller bearing and precision built cam followers for smooth, easy, effortless rotation. Cranes are available in capacities of 500, 1000 or 2000 pounds with a span length of 6 to 12 feet and an under beam height of up to 24 ft.
