Portable Jib Crane

What are the benefits of a Portable Jib Crane? A Poured foundation can cost as much or more than the jib crane itself. The benefit of using a portable jib means YOU save money! Poured foundations can take up to a week to cure before you can install the jib. Now it's even easier to relocate your jib crane when there's no poured foundation. The portable base design is easily transported by a fork truck. This means more flexibility when choosing where to place your jib cranes. You can place them closer to machines and other obstructions because there is no need for a large foundation to pour. These jibs are designed to service circular areas and support tool balancers, vacuum lifters, and hoists. They can accommodate up to a 360° rotation. Capacities are available from 100 lbs. to 1000 lbs. and spans up to 16 ft. A portable Jib Crane increases productivity through easy boom rotation and trolley movement, thus providing a rapid return on investment.


  • Circular areas not adequately covered by a main crane.
  • Supporting tool balancers, hoists, vacuum lifters and welding wire feeders.


Festoon Clamps: Festoon clamps anchor the festooning at the start of the jib boom and also prevent the festoon gliders from exiting the track. Festoon clamps for vacuum hose are too.
Festoon Gliders: Festoon gliders are used to support flat electrical cable. No tools are required to attach the festooning. One festoon clamp is required with the use of festoon gliders.
Festoon Trolleys: festoon trolleys are used to support flat cable, air hose, or round cable along the boom. The trolleys have four wheels and a pivoting festoon saddle. Festoon trolleys for vacuum hose are available too. One festoon clamp is required with the festoon trolleys.
Flat Cable or Air Hose: A flat cable festooning system is required when using an electric powered hoist. Air hose is also available.
Four Ring Electrical Collector (Top or Bottom Entry): A collector is needed to provide a continuous 360° boom rotation when using an electric powered lifting device. A bottom entry collector needs 4 additional inches of clearance above the pivot pin. A top entry collector needs 11-1/4 additional inches of clearance above the pivot pin.
Air Swivel (Top or Bottom Entry): An air swivel is needed to provide a continuous 360° boom rotation when using an air lifting device. A bottom entry air swivel needs an additional 5 inches of clearance above the pivot pin. A top entry air swivel needs between 8-1/2 and 9-1/2 inches (depending on span and capacity) of additional clearance above the pivot pin.
Manual Rotation Stops: Rotation stops are required to limit the floor mounted jib rotation to less than 360° to prevent boom damage to machines, equipment, or building structures.
Vacuum Platform Attachment: If a vacuum lifted motor/blower is required to be mounted on the mast or building column, then a specially-designed vacuum blower support platform attachment can be designed for this specific application.
