Counterbalanced Cranes

The idea of using a counterbalanced crane may sound intimidating at first, but it’s actually one of the most reliable and efficient ways of lifting heavy loads. Counterbalanced lifters are a type of crane that utilise counterweights to help evenly distribute the force of the load. This helps to stabilise the crane and prevent it from tipping over. Additionally, counterbalance cranes provide greater stability than other types of cranes, making them ideal for use in many industries. Often used in industries that require precise and steady manoeuvring of goods and materials, such as manufacturing, construction, or transportation. Because of their design, counterbalanced cranes allow operators to manoeuvre goods into tighter spaces with relative ease. Our counterbalanced cranes have the ability to lift up to 2100kg to a height of up to 5500mm. Often used to move drums off pallets and lift onto machines or other areas. No matter what industry you work in we have the counterbalance floor crane for you.

Counterbalanced cranes can be tailored to the specific needs of the industry. Many crane manufacturers offer custom-made cranes that are designed to fit the exact specifications of a given operation. This allows operators to get the most out of their counterbalanced crane, ensuring that it is able to handle the long-term demands of the industry. We offer a wide range of counterbalance cranes with a range of standard and bespoke attachments to suit your lifting applications. All our counterbalance floor cranes are offered in various finishes, including IP rated and ATEX compliant.

    What is a counterbalance crane?

    A counterbalance crane is a type of overhead crane that uses a combination of weights and pulleys to reduce the weight of the load being lifted. Such as pallets, containers, and materials in factories, warehouses, and other industrial settings.

    How does a counterbalance crane work?

    A counter balance crane uses a combination of weights and pulleys to reduce the weight of the load being lifted. The weights are used to offset the weight of the load, making it easier for the crane operator to lift and move the load.

    What are the benefits of using a counter balance crane?

    The advantages of using counterbalanced cranes include increased safety, increased efficiency, reduced fatigue, and improved productivity. Using a counterbalance crane also reduces the amount of manual labour needed to lift and move heavy loads. Additionally, it is much safer than manual lifting and reduces the risk of injury to operators.

    Is a floor crane the same as a counterbalance crane?

    No, a floor crane is not the same as a counterbalance crane. Floor cranes are used to lift and move heavy loads and are designed for industrial applications. Counterbalance cranes are designed for vertical lifting and feature counterweights for balance.
