Free Standing Jib Crane

    Free Standing Jib Cranes are Gorbel’s most versatile crane and are best for heavy duty, high productivity applications. They are the perfect jib crane to place underneath large bridge cranes, in open areas where they can serve several work stations, in outdoor applications such as loading docks, or in machining and assembly operations where they can be overlapped with other jib cranes to provide staged operation. Here are some key features of our Free Standing Jib Crane:

  • 3 available mounting styles – base plate mounted, Insert mounted (permanent), sleeve mounted (removable)
  • Boxed style head provides benefits from install to operation of the jib crane
  • Full supporting triangular gussets that minimize crane deflection, making it easier to accurately position loads
  • In-head, enclosed bottom entry collector assembly allows the option to add power to the hoist for 360 degree rotation at the time of or after purchase
  • Head retaining pin provides resistance to accidental upward dislodgement of the head

  • Prior to selecting a Free Standing Jib Crane for your application, two key requirements must be met. The jib crane needs to be supported by a structurally adequate foundation unless you choose a foundationless design. There must be sufficient clearance above the boom (nominally 3 inches) throughout its arc.
