Aluminum Gantry Cranes



What is an Aluminum Gantry Crane?

A gantry crane is a bridge-like crane featuring a beam and uprights. This crane type is designed to lift loads from the overhead position using a hoist, and if needed move the load horizontally between the uprights using a trolley. Lifting is accomplished using either a manual or powered hoist that is attached to the trolley. Gantry cranes are widely used for overhead lifting tasks in factories and maintenance depots. At HOF Equipment Company, we specialize in aluminum gantry cranes for safe and cost-effective overhead lifting. Aluminum is lightweight, yet offers strength, which allows for quick height adjustment and easy transport. It's also great for indoor and outdoor applications due to the anti-corrosive properties of aluminum. Our offering includes an expansive range of aluminum gantry crane types, sizes, and capacities. We carry several nationally recognized brands some of which offer tremendous value and others that can be rolled while under load. Under beam usable lift heights are available up to 18' allowing which is ideal for performing maintenance on larger pieces of equipment such as helicopters. Whether you need a 1 ton to 3 ton aluminum gantry crane which are standard for the industry, or non standard larger capacities including a 4 ton aluminum gantry crane, 5 ton aluminum gantry crane, or even a 10 ton aluminum gantry crane, we have a crane for your application. We also offer gantry crane options including ratcheting come a-longs, festoon systems for powered hoist cord handling, hoists, trollies, and various caster options.
