Wallace 1 to 7.5 Ton Steel Thrifty Adjustable Height Cranes

Wallace portable gantry cranes are ideal for maintenance, manufacturing, repairs and other material handling tasks. Many customers use our cranes for HVAC, assembly, and repairs of physical equipment. Some of our current users include electric utilities, municipal maintenance (including subways, buses and building facilities), hospitals, universities, research institutions and the military. Our Thrifty Steel cranes are available in adjustable and fixed heights and offer the greatest clear span of any Wallace Crane allowing you flexible lifting solutions. Available accessories include manual or powered trolleys and hoists, cable ratchet kits (up to 5 ton capacities) for frequent crane height adjustments, and adjust-a-span kits (available on I-beams 15′ or less). Options for track mounting with V-groove caster and motorizing cranes are also available. Click on the accessories tab for more information.
