Mast Type Jib

cost effective craneMast Type Jib reduce thrust and pull forces, no foundation required.

Economical
Simple, efficient design that usually requires no special foundation makes the Mast Type Crane the most cost effective of the 360° rotation jib styles.

Safety
Utilizes a self-aligning radial bushing at the top which cannot be displaced, and an identical self-aligning radial bushing at the bottom which, when used in combination with an oil-impregnated bronze thrust washer, provides ease of movement. Exerts the least amount of force of any Gorbel® jib on its supporting structure.

Full Rated Capacity
Pre-engineered for use with powered hoists. A factor of 15% of the jib crane capacity is allowed for the hoist and trolley weight with an additional 25% of the capacity allowed for impact, thus giving full rated capacity use of the jib. Three key requirements must be met before deciding on a Mast Type Jib Crane: An adequate structural support to stabilize the crane at the top of the mast must exist. If the jib is installed underneath an overhead crane runway or building truss, then the deflection of the supporting member may not exceed 1/2 inch. Clearance overhead for the pivot assembly must exist. Clearance overhead for the boom to rotate must exist.

Maximum Trolley Travel

Mast/beam connections eliminate the need for tie rods or knee braces found on competitive designs, thus permitting maximum trolley travel.

Available in Two Styles

MT400 FULL CANTILEVER - provides for maximum amount of lift where full use of available headroom is desired.

MT450 DROP CANTILEVER - jib boom can be placed at a specific height to clear overhead obstruction.
