  • Gantry crane

    anyone have pics of gantry cranes?.. i've seen the normal ones on casters but i want to make one that runs over my driveway for unloading and loading stuff and also to move my engine drive around... i want to have an I beam to run back and forth over my driveway perferably like 60 feet long and about 20 feet high. .. it's gunna be a huge one . I also want to put a pitched roof over it so i stay dry. any pics of any type of gantry cranes would be appreciated. thanks.

    Bridge Crane

    Been a crane operator for 40 yrs. A 60 foot span on an I-beam would be a little shaky I think. You may want to look into a cab or pendant controlled bridge crane. What capacity crane are you looking for?

        Sorry, misunderstood. I will contact the engineering department and see about the pictures. It may take a little time I retired 2 years ago, but, I'm sure I can still do this. I'm thinking they will want to know about the capacity.
