ABELL-HOWE CRANE AND EQUIPMENT
Jib cranes are a very versatile type of crane that can be used in challenging spaces for which an overhead crane may not be feasible. They typically consist of a support pillar with a cantilever arm that contains the hoisting mechanism attached to the top. The manufacturing, petrochemical, and transportation industries all use jib cranes extensively in a wide range of applications. Abell-Howe produces jib cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 5 tons in wall mounted or base mounted pillar configurations. With the capability to rotate 360°, jib cranes are capable of serving a large work area while taking up relatively little space in the facility.
