Mast Type Jib Crane

    Mast Type Jib Cranes are floor supported, top stabilized, and capable of 360° rotation via a top and bottom bearing assembly. They are the most cost effective of the 360° rotation jib styles because their efficient design usually requires no special foundation. Here are some key features of our Mast Type Jib Crane:

  • 2 available styles: Full Cantilever or Drop Cantilever
  • Mast type cranes are the most cost effective of the 360° rotation jib styles because of their simple, efficient design that usually requires no special foundation
  • Exerts the least amount of force of any Gorbel® jib on its supporting structure
  • Uses a self-aligning radial bushing at the top which cannot be displaced, and an identical self-aligning radial bushing at the bottom which, when used in combination with an oil-impregnated bronze thrust washer, provides ease of movement
  • Mast/beam connections eliminate the need for tie rods or knee braces found on competitive designs, thus permitting maximum trolley travel

  • Prior to selecting a Mast Type Jib Crane for your application, three key requirements must be met. An adequate structural support to stabilize the crane at the top of the mast must exist. If the jib is installed underneath an overhead crane runway or building truss, then the deflection of the supporting member may not exceed 1/2 inch. There must be clearance overhead for the pivot assembly and the boom to rotate.
