A-Frame Cranes are free-standing gantries mounted onto wheels or casters so they can quickly and easily be moved from one location to another. All our gantries can be mounted with wheels and/or casters. These cranes are sometimes also referred to as a-frame hoists, cranes, or gantries because of the triangular (“A”) shape of their legs.

A-Frame Cranes is manufactured for lifting equipment, loading and unloading of the warehouse, maintaining heavy-duty equipment, and transporting materials, applicable for the small and medium factory.

The omnidirectional movement of the A-Frame Cranes is the biggest advantage. It has a fast assembly speed and small size. It can be moved to another area with only a mini-car. At short distances, you can even push it by one person, and then move the portable gantry crane to the position you need.

A-Frame Cranes Capacity is 0.25 to 10 ton, span is 12m. The brake-bearing universal wheel can move on the ground, be used together with an electric hoist, chain block, monorail trolley, realizing crane mechanization, which can reduce the human power, production costs, and improve work efficiency.


Permanent installation is not required, better price of the rail.

Quick and easy to assembly.

Portable design allows for relocation for use in more than one facility or work area.

Gantry construction adopts a standard welding method. All nuts, bolts, and pins are plated for corrosion resistance.

All Gantry Cranes are painted by safety standard paint.

Simple Gantry Crane work efficiently and economically


Because gantry cranes ride on the ground rather than on overhead runways, they don’t require a runway structure.

Nor do they usually require concrete foundations.

Their installation is fast and simple.

Depending on the environment and application, gantry cranes can sometimes provide the same material handling capabilities as a comparable bridge crane system, but with significant cost savings.

Simple and compact structure


Steady performance

Easy maintenance
