Adjustable-Height Steel Tripod Hoists

Wallace Cranes offers adjustable-height steel tripod hoists in 2-8 ton capacities. Most models are easily transportable and can be assembled and disassembled quickly making them an ideal choice for repair and maintenance jobs located on and off-site. In addition, our tripods are recommended to help set up our larger cranes when a forklift or overhead lifting equipment is unavailable.

All units are shipped with standard “feet” and a lashing cable to prevent overspreading of the legs. The feet are rounded on the bottom and have a hole through which the lashing cable can be installed.

Optional rubber base pad, mud base plate, and spike base kits are available for every model.
