PF Series Gantry Crane Main Section

PF-Series Gantry Cranes



  • Capacities: up to 15 tons
  • Height under Beam, standard: up to 35’
  • Spans, standard: up to 40’
  • Spans, custom: up to 50’*

Spanco PF-Series Gantry Cranes offer high capacity, high height, long span, and economical lifting solutions.

These strong, portal frame (PF) cranes can be ideal if:

  • Your building can’t support freestanding cranes or ceiling-mounted cranes; PF-Gantry Cranes are self-supporting and travel directly on the floor
  • Your lifting volume is moderate and can’t justify more expensive, permanently installed cranes
  • You need an economical, versatile lifting system to supplement your existing overhead cranes
  • You rent your facility; these gantries can be relocated in the future
  • Your plant has been “making do” with multiple forklifts; coordinating too many lifts, especially on heavy or very long loads, is unsafe, inefficient, and time consuming
  • Can’t fit a double leg PF crane into your plant due to narrow bays or crowded machinery? Check out our Spanco Single Leg Gantry Cranes.


Options and Components

  • V-Groove Track Drives: Two motors drive rigid steel V-groove wheels along a fixed path; see Power Drive Options Kits
  • Guide Angle Drives: Ideal for installations where gantry runs along a wall, two motors on one side of the gantry drive trackless polyurethane wheels that are led by a small guide angle; the guide angle simply lags into the floor, at the base of the wall; see Power Drive Kits
  • Crane Rail Drives: Two motors drive double flange steel wheels along a fixed path
  • Truly Trackless (Aligning) Drives: These drives are ideal for when you need to keep your shop floor clear of all tracks or angle guides; a selector switch in the control pendant selectively turns each motor on and off to guide the gantry along
