About

Downs News

During construction of the web site, this page will be used to inform you of the status of our web site.

The About Page

This page is going to give a History of Downs Crane and Hoist from when it started as Downs Brothers until now. It will also provide some old photo's of previous products and locations for the company. It currently is only a collection of some of the photo's that might be used to show its history.

Products

This page is the link to our many standard products. It is impossible to show all the products that we make since we also design and build special equipment built to customer's needs, but it is a good place to get an idea of what we make. The page is divided into two parts. The first allows you to find products that will lift the materials shown. The second allows you to find a item by looking for it by the type of lifter it is. Here is the current status of these pages.
