Power Drive Kits for Crane Electrification

Wallace Cranes offers a wide range of options for power drive units to fit our gantry cranes. A power drive is an optional kit to motorize a crane to move with the push of a button. You can choose from 230 or 460V three-phase. Additionally you can get a powered hoist which can be operated from the same pendant.

Shown below is a power drive unit being used in our own shop. It is lifting a 24″ I-beam.
