Shop Crane

Product Information - Installation

Shop Crane is a non-industrial overhead bridge crane system that uses two parallel steel tracks, or runways, to guide a steel bridge over your work space. The bridge features a non-binding trolley that glides along the inside of the enclosed track to give you complete coverage within the frame of the system.

By spreading the weight of the load over the bridge and runways of the crane, moving and positioning a full 1000 or 2000 pound load becomes a safe and easy one-person job.

1. Measure and mark

Properly measure the height, width and length of the area where you will be installing the Shop Crane before purchasing to insure that you select the right configuration.

When you are ready to install the crane, measure and mark the floor where the columns will go. Be sure to measure diagonally across the system to check that the system will be square. Runways must be parallel for smooth bridge movement.
