But don’t take our word for it. The following are a couple customer comments; please call for additional references.

"My son and I purchased a small 2 ton crane kit from We had no experience at this type of installation — we are welders/fabricators. The unit was on time, compact, easy-to-install, and works great. We only had two questions during installation and the 24 hour service group answered both of them in minutes... at 11:00 at night. Great service, great crane, happy customers."
