Floor Crane Advantages
There are many different types of cranes on the market, and it can be difficult to decide which is the best to go for. Many think the bigger the better, but this isn’t always the case! Below we have listed out five major floor crane advantages.
#1 Floor cranes are portable
Floor cranes are some of the smallest cranes on the market, and are extremely portable in nature. This means that not only can they be wheeled around the space that you are working in, but they can also be folded up and transported between multiple worksites. This is a huge advantage that many other cranes simply don’t offer.
#2 Floor cranes can be used in multiple ways
Further adding to their adaptable nature, floor cranes can be used in multiple different positions and come with two different floor frame variants; either in a ‘v’ chassis or a parallel shape. Our standard floor cranes have five positions and our heavy duty floor cranes have four positions.

#3 Floor cranes can be used for many tasks
Floor cranes are sometimes called engine cranes as they are commonly used for lifting and lowering engines out of cars. But they are also known as workshop cranes as they are the most useful crane for a workshop, and they also find great uses in small factories or industrial units.
#4 Floor cranes are compatible with many different lifting accessories
There are many types of lifting accessory available on the market, with everything from manual chain hoists to air hoists. Floor cranes can be utilised with almost all of these lifting accessories, further adding to their highly adaptable nature.
#5 Floor cranes have great lifting strength
Don’t be fooled by their smaller nature! Floor cranes might operate at a slower pace than other cranes, but they are still incredibly strong pieces of lifting equipment more than capable of pulling their weight. Both of our floor cranes can lift up to 1000Kg in weight, and so are a lightweight and small, yet strong, piece of lifting equipment.
