Wallace Thrifty gantry cranes have the greatest clear span of all our gantries. They use gussets instead of brace legs which results in extra lateral space under the I-beam for handling large and bulky loads.
Thrifty gantry cranes have a wide variety of indoor-outdoor, commercial and industrial applications. They are used by utilities, municipal maintenance, hospitals, universities, research institutions, and the military. Aluminum Thrifties are particularly popular with automotive garages, machine shops, HVAC service providers, and contractors who need lighter-weight lift equipment that can be easily loaded into and out of trucks and assembled and disassembled quickly.
