Wallace 1/2 to 2 Ton Aluminum Thrifty Cranes

The lightweight Wallace Aluminum Thrifty Crane is one of our popular product lines and offers the greatest clear span of any Wallace Crane. The Aluminum design makes these cranes the ideal combination of high lifting and reduced weight. They are easily assembled and disassembled for convenient portability. Current applications include use in chemical, optical and electronic clean rooms. In addition, many customers use our cranes for HVAC, electric utilities, WWTP, municipal maintenance (including subways, buses and building facilities), hospitals, universities, airports and military. With adjustable height and span Wallace Cranes provide flexible lifting solutions. Available accessories include manual or powered trolleys and hoists, cable ratchet kits for frequent crane height adjustments, and adjust-a-span kits for quick span adjustments.
