These portable stainless steel floor cranes retract into a compact size when not in use to save space in storage. Floor cranes provide an ergonomic solution to many material-handling challenges. They are smaller, less expensive and safer alternatives to motorized lift trucks. Narrow enough to pass through standard door openings, narrow aisles and elevators, floor cranes can be maneuvered in areas off-limits to other lifting equipment. The cranes feature 100 percent stainless steel construction and have no painted surfaces, as paint (even FDA-approved epoxies) is not tolerated on any equipment in many clean rooms. The cranes are available with lifting capacities of 1,000 lbs. Construction is exceptionally robust, with structural tubing ¼-inch to ½-inch thick, large casters and totally welded fabrication. Although they contain over twice the metal of many competitive cranes with the same lifting capacity, they are easy to manually guide and propel.
