What are Cleveland Tramrail Overhead Cranes?

For over 100 years, Cleveland Tramrail® has been the industry leader in patented track overhead lifting. Since the beginning, Cleveland Tramrail® has been engineering monorails and under-hung crane systems to meet our customer’s heavy lifting needs. In 2002, Gorbel® added Cleveland Tramrail® to our already robust crane offering. It was the perfect combination, Gorbel’s award winning customer service and reliability extended to Cleveland Tramrail® Patented Track and Tarca Track bridge cranes.
