Gantry crane

Postby Xplitive » Mon Mar 11, 2019 9:13 am

Looking for input on an affordable gantry crane.
Have no experience with them and fairly sure it will fit my current needs. Looks like if my needs increase the biggest concern would be the limited width of the more affordable harbor freight and jegs models.

Harbor Freight is the only one with enough reviews to kind of point out a broad range of quality issues. One of the main ones is the mechanism to raise and lower the height and the other being the overall quality.

As far as height, If I can set it and forget it, that’s what I would do.
As far as parts, the manufacturer doesn’t appear to have a system. Harbor freight is local but doesn’t seem to keep stuff in stock. Jegs is usually really good as far as support.
