A floor crane may also be referred to as an engine lifter, engine cranes or workshop crane.

The heavy duty floor crane that we offer is perfect for removing engines for repair or replacement in independent car workshops. However they can also be utilised for many other lifting tasks around your workplace. Tasks such as loading and unloading pallets or servicing products.

They are available in 2 safe working load models, 500kg and 1000kg. Each model has a choice of parallel or 'v' chassis feet.

Key features of our heavy duty floor crane

The main chassis or frame of this heavy duty floor crane is available in 2 variants with different feet / lower frame. First of all there is the model with a parallel chassis  where the feet/ legs are identically positioned opposite each other. These are probably a little more stable than the second type.

The other model available has a 'V' shaped chassis.  The specific shape is to enable easier access in specific areas depending on your requirements. The 'V' shaped chassis can easily be positioned round the corner of an object or pallet.

The main arm and boom fold down for easier storage making them ideal for occasional use. Furthermore they are great wherever space is at a premium. The boom or arm cantilevers out until it is parallel to the floor and is also height adjustable. It can be raised up to 2080mm in height and extended out to 4 different positions in 100mm increments from 1130mm up to 1430mm by means of locating the pin into the relevant hole.

This heavy duty floor crane incorporates a slewing hydraulic system which can rotate making it more easy to access in confined spaces and also has a sensitive lowering valve.

A parking brake is fitted to ensure the crane stays in position, this comes as standard.
