For customers that may be unfamiliar with the Budgit version of the Manguard Electric Chain Hoist I will let you in on CMCO's (Columbus McKinonn's) little secret. The CM Manguard Hoist is exactly the same hoist except it has orange paint and CM sticker. The same is true of the Yale KELC Electric chain hoist, it is identical to the Budgit Manguard hoist, except this one just has a different sticker, the paint is even the same. So buy the lowest priced electric chain hoist.

Jib Crane Selection Guide

Jib cranes are the most cost effective and versatile type of lifting equipment. They are great for use in production lines to keep machining cells, workstations and warehouse production moving. Jib cranes also work well to aid larger overhead crane systems. Jib cranes are easy to install and cost effective, with less structural limitations than other material handling options.

Follow these basic guidelines to help you choose the correct jib crane for your application:

Capacity: Choose a capacity that is right for current and future lifting needs. Most of the available options at, up to 5 tons, include a 15% allowance for the hoisting equipment. This allows for full use of the rated jib crane capacity.

Span: Choose a span that is adequate to cover the full work area. Keep in mind that hoist and trolley selection may reduce the end approach, limiting hook coverage and requiring a move to a larger span.

Hook Height: The hook height is the height needed to lift your material. This measurement is equal to height under boom minus the headroom of the hoist and trolley.

Rotation: Jib cranes, depending on their design, have between 180° and 360° of rotation. Be sure that the area of installation is free of obstructions throughout the full range of rotation. Rotation stops are available upon request to limit the range of rotation.

Supporting Structure: When selecting a jib crane be sure to take into consideration the supporting structure. Building structures must be able to support the forces of the jib crane and load. Please, consult with your building designer or an engineer if uncertain of the adequacy of supporting structures. Also, keep in mind that the foundation requirements of freestanding jib cranes will add additional costs.
