Single Girder Bridge Cranes

Single Girder cranes are typically the most cost efficient electric crane to put into service. We build both top running and underhung cranes with the former being the most popular. A top running crane has the bridge beam sitting on top of the end trucks with an underhung hoist where as an underhung/running crane hangs from the end trucks which ride under the runway beam, it too has an underhung hoist. Our single girder cranes range from 1 ton capacity up to 20 ton capacity with spans up to 60’ using wide flange girders and the capability to go up to 75’ using a box girder design. One of the reasons Crane Systems Inc has grown to the company we are today is because of how efficient we are with manufacturing single girder cranes. For cranes in 5 and 10 ton capacities with 25’ of lift and spans up to 60’ we have the capability to offer quick ship which guarantees a 3 week delivery from the time the order is placed. When headroom, capacity and span is not a problem a single girder crane will be the most economical.
