Canada's Jib Crane Safety Experts

Why Choose Hercules SLR Jib Cranes

Jib cranes are cranes composed of vertical masts and a horizontal jib arms. They are relatively easy to build and install, and they increase shop productivity and improve workplace safety in a variety of industrial environments.

Compared to more complicated types of cranes, jib cranes are simple to operate, and require less maintenance.

Freestanding jib cranes are popular because they can be used in virtually any environment. However, it’s important that any crane is anchored securely in place, whether by means of a base-plate mount, specialized foundation, or other means. The strength of this anchor determines the crane’s overall load capacity.

Hercules SLR supplies Canadian businesses with customized, tough, dependable, cost-effective jib crane systems. Our expert team can help you save time and money by investing in a jib crane.
