Powerdrive Kits for Electrification of Crane

Wallace Cranes offers a wide range of options for Powerdrive units. A powerdrive 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 operated from the same pendant. Shown below is a Powerdrive unit in use in our own shop lifting a 24″ I-beam.
