Jib Options

MWS offers several types of jib cranes. The free-standing floor mounted is probably the most commonly used type, wall mounted and portable solutions available as well. Free-standing jib cranes offer a 360° rotation  while column/wall mounted offers a 200° rotation.


Freestanding/Foundation mounted crane options:

Free-standing units can be installed inside or outside. Standard paint options along with galvanized finishes are available. Free-standing/foundation mounted jibs offer higher lifting capacity, longer spans and greater rotation. Rotation stops can be pre-installed or installed in the field to restrict movement and limit travel. Concrete footings are needed with heavier capacity and longer span jibs. We will determine the size of footing for you.



Concrete footings will be needed for heavier capacity and longer span units. MWS will determine the proper footing specs for your application.

Floor installation templates can be purchased with all free-standing units to allow precise installation and anchor placement.
