Crane Kits

With the world of big and small businesses battling shrinking budgets caused by an economy that does not permit any fat or waste in business, we are seeing a lot more do-it-yourselfers out there. This phenomenon is more of a hit in home improvement applications, but we see it daily in business and industry all over the country.

Shop equipment, being a sizable and long-term investment, is one of the areas we are seeing the DIY philosophy taking over. As workloads become larger, a CNC shop, heat treat, or warehouse cannot afford to turn away a customer. The decision to incorporate an overhead crane is no longer a yes or no question, but a "how can we afford it" question. One way to greatly reduce the cost of an overhead crane is through the purchase of crane kits. These kits allows you to do the installation yourself. But, even if you fiddle with painting and fixing the kitchen sink, the issue of installing crane kits can be daunting and there is much to consider.
