Portable Gantry Cranes

Wallace gantry cranes are manufactured and assembled in the USA. They are built to last using our patented, pinned-joint design, heavy-gauge steel and aluminum, and plated bolts, pins, and hardware. With customers still ordering accessories for gantries built well over 60 years ago – they are an investment that pays for itself – many times over.

Portable or mobile gantry cranes are free-standing gantries mounted onto wheels or casters so they can quickly and easily be moved from one location to another. All our gantries can be mounted with wheels and/or casters. These cranes are sometimes also referred to as a-frame hoists, cranes, or gantries because of the triangular (“A”) shape of their legs.

The comprehensive line of portable gantry cranes we have for sale is designed to fit every need and budget. We have 5 different product lines and hundreds of models, including a 15-ton made-to-order gantry and the option to have a crane customized just for you. All 5 lines are shown below for easy comparison. Note that we also sell Kart Kits which transform disassembled tri-adjustable gantries into wheeled carts making them exceptionally easy to move and store.
