Features of Spanco A-Series Steel Gantry Cranes
- Crane Height Adjustments: Adjusting in 6-inch increments, height adjustment kits use spring-loaded steel locking pins that automatically engage when height positioning holes are reached; adjust heights for specific lifts, uneven floors, or to move through doorways
- Adjustable Spans: Standard on aluminum cranes, adjustable spans are optional on steel cranes; adjustable spans allow the crane to be shortened for transport down narrow aisles
- Heavy-Duty Casters: Four-position, swivel-lock casters with moldon polyurethane wheels provide excellent floor protection
Spanco A-Series Gantry Cranes have greater clear spans because they don’t require four brace legs like our T-Series. (NOTE: If you need the ability to adjust the crane’s tread, see our T-Series Gantry Cranes.)
