Series 563 Jib Crane

Downs Series 563 Jib Cranes are of the self-supporting type and require no top bracing of any kind. They require very little headroom and will turn through a full 360 degrees. These cranes are excellent for use in machine and fabrication shops or for loading and unloading of trucks and storage areas. They also should be considered for all locations where a crane is required and overhead supports, struts, or guy-lines are not available or cannot be used.

The clear height under the jib and the jib length may be changed to suit operating conditions. The jib beam will accommodate any standard trolley equipped with a pneumatic, electric or hand operated chain hoist. of nominal lifting speed (25 fpm or less). Contact Sales if higher lift speeds are used.

Downs Series 563 Jib Cranes are equipped with special self-aligning rollers and thrust assemblies, allowing for easy rotation of the jib even while under full load. All bearings are factory lubricated for long life. These cranes are placed in the footing, either directly or perferred method of using an insert.
