  • Gantry Crane Winching System?

    Hi All,

    I recently completed building a gantry crane I purchased from here: Gantry Crane Plans. I'll post some pics when I get it back, just finished it and a friend already borrowed it. After getting it all together, I realized how much of a pain it is to raise and lower the height of the I-Beam. I was wondering if anybody has built one of these and put a cable winching system on one? I think that would make it a lot easier to adjust the height. I saw a gantry crane on the Harbour Freight website that has a winching system but can't tell how it works from the picture on the site.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    if you down load the manual for the crane there is a parts diagram that will show you how to build it and how it works
