Adjustable Height Steel Tripod

Wallace Cranes offers steel adjustable portable tripods in 2-8 ton capacities. Most models are easily transportable and can be assembled/disassembled quickly making them an ideal choice for repair and maintenance jobs located off-site. In addition, our tripods are recommended to help set-up our larger cranes when a forklift or overhead lifting equipment is not available. All units include a standard base with lashing cable to prevent overspreading of the legs. Rubber Base Pad Kits, Mud Base Plate Kits, and Spike Base Kits are optional accessories available for every model.
