Portable Jib Cranes Can Save You Time & MoneyA jib crane is one that you can move with a
forklift in order to position your crane closer to the desired work area.  The jib is a horizontal boom that is attaché to either a wall or a vertical support.  The boom supports a moveable hoist that is used to lift and move objects.

Advantages and Benefits

The advantage this type of crane offers is the ability to not only move materials vertically and horizontally, but to also move them in an arc for precise positioning on truck beds, in work areas, or on pallets.  This allows a circular area to be fully serviced in a manner that a standard crane cannot adequately accomplish.

Larger cranes are fixed in position on a poured concrete foundation.  They are therefore limited in application to their immediate facility.  With portable cranes, however, companies can take the crane to the job and get the job done more efficiently, more quickly, and more cost effectively than ever. 

Commercial & Industrial Grade Portable Jib Cranes

Portable jibs save organizations thousands of dollars in costs associated with pouring foundations that would be needed to support fixed cranes.  They save even more money when we consider that time is money in the world of operations.  Quickly relocating the crane to the job exponentially increases process flow when in comparison to the amount of time it takes to permanently mount a larger unit.

Organizations can also move equipment, materials, and products with greater precision using portable cranes.  Because they do not require a poured foundation, the units can be placed much closer to trucks, pallets, and manufacturing equipment.

Product Features

A portable jib can be moved from one location to the other simply by picking it up with a forklift.  Built in fork tubes accommodate fork tines so that the unit can be safely transported anywhere within a facility that a fork truck can access.

Specifications vary slightly on the individual units based on the manufacturer, model, and weight capacity.  However, certain basic features are common to all.  A concrete filled base makes the unit stable.  Units are manufactured with the base empty, although it is not uncommon for some organizations to pay factories and suppliers an additional freight cost to ship the base pre-filled for immediate use.

Truck Mounted Commercial Grade Portable Jib CranesFull 360 degree rotation is a standard feature of all portable jibs.  Some manufacturers specialize in an offset design that services a larger work area under the I-beam. 

The smallest models are very basic, and they are designed so move small tools and products weighting up to 250 pounds in circular areas.

The largest of these portable cranes are those which can handle up to 1,000 pounds. 

Recently, truck mounted and van mounted portable jibs have been added to the growing list of transportable mini cranes.  These material handling tools are highly useful in lifting materials off of pallets and placing them directly in truck beds or van cargo beds. 


Different attachments can be mounted to the hoist that will allow workers to lift flat, circular, boxed, or oddly shaped cargo.
