Jib & Hoist Bundle
Everything you need to get up and Running
Virtually every jib crane needs a hoist. The hoist connects the crane and the item to lift, so it’s no less important a choice, but there are many different types. The simplest solution is a jib and hoist bundle.
Get production up and running sooner with everything you need in one of our bundles.
Installation is easy. We include all the mounting hardware and cranes can be bolted directly to your existing floor without adding special foundations.
The Jib and Hoist Bundle
When you purchase a jib crane kit, it includes every piece of hardware needed to get you up and running quickly. Kits make installation very easy; they include the jib crane, hoist, and additional hardware, including:
- Anchor bolts
- Anchor bolt epoxy
- Epoxy dispenser
- Festoon clamp
- Festoon gliders
- Rotation stops
The hoist is carefully matched to your needs and the jib. Bundled hoists come with a two-button pendant, along with direct-acting upper and lower limit switches.
Choosing the Right Bundle for your ApplicationSelect Your Bundle
When choosing a jib and hoist bundle, there are six factors to look out for:
- Lift capacity
- Height Under Boom (HUB)
- Lift Speed
- Brand of crane and hoist
When choosing lift capacity, you generally don’t need to add wiggle room to the weight. However, you should consider any plans for increased weight ratings where the crane will be installed.
The span and HUB are also important. Consider where the jib will be swinging. Does it need to rotate 360 degrees? Are there any obstructions? What about above or below the jib? What voltages are available, and do you have three-phase power? Finally, is there a specific lift speed you need?
Other Jib Crane Options
If you don’t get the kit, you’ll usually choose the crane type first, then the hoist. Each jib crane is designed for a different use, and each has a range of hoists it’ll support. The four basic types of jib crane are:
- Wall mount
- Floor mount
- Mast type
Wall mount cranes are great when there’s a lack of floor space. Floor mount and mast type often offer a higher weight rating, while articulating ones are specially designed to work around obstacles.
The hoist is, to some degree, secondary to the choice of a crane. In all cases, it must match the crane specifications. Some hoists are hand-powered, but others require electricity and a smooth track for motorized movement. Along with the weight of the item being lifted, the hoist is the most important factor in your choice.
