Freestanding Jib Cranes

Gorbel Freestanding Jib Cranes stand out as the most versatile cranes in their lineup, ideal for demanding and highly productive tasks. These cranes excel in heavy-duty applications and are particularly well-suited for placement beneath large bridge cranes. Designed for various settings: whether in open work areas with multiple stations, outdoor environments like loading docks, or machining and assembly operations where overlapping with other jib cranes facilitates staged operations. 

Gorbel Freestanding
I-Beam Jib Crane

The Gorbel Free Standing I-Beam Jib Crane stands out with its versatility and efficiency, offering three convenient mounting styles: base plate mounted, insert mounted (permanent), and sleeve mounted (removable). The boxed style head ensures a seamless installation and optimal operation of the jib crane. The inclusion of full supporting triangular gussets minimizes crane deflection, facilitating precise load positioning. The in-head, enclosed bottom entry collector assembly provides the flexibility to add power to the hoist for 360-degree rotation either at the time of purchase or as an upgrade. With a robust head retaining pin, the crane resists accidental upward dislodgement, enhancing safety measures
