Gorbel I-Beam Jib Cranes

Gorbel™ Free Standing I-Beam Jib Crane

TYPE: Gorbel Cranes and Monorails

MODEL: Gorbel Jib Cranes

I- Beam Jib Cranes are some of the most versatile cranes available. They are designed to lift and move materials in semicircles or 360° full circles. They are a cost-effective way to ensure productivity in environments with limited space.

From free standing to floor-supported to wall bracket configurations, Gorbel I-Beam Jib Cranes provide the highest level of quality, safety and performance available.

I-Beam Jib Cranes have a heavy wall structural steel pipe mast and a reinforced large diameter base plate for minimal deflection and continuous alignment.

  • Capacity up to 10,000 lbs. 
  • Coverage:  circular, Standard spans to 20' 
  • 360° rotation 
  • 3 Mounting styles; base plate mounted, sleeve mounted, insert sleeve mounted

Gorbel Free Standing Mounting Styles for Cranes

Gorbel Wall Bracket Jib Crane

Wall Bracket Jib Cranes

Wall Bracket Jib Cranes are the most economical means of providing hoist coverage for individual use in bays, along walls or columns of plants, or as a supplement to an overhead crane or monorail system.

  • Capacity up to 10,000 lbs. 
  • Coverage: circular, standard spans to 30' 
  • 200° rotation 
  • Ideal for swinging around obstacles or under obstructions


  • Most economical means of providing hoist coverage for individual use in bays, along walls or columns of plants 
  • Low dead weight of the boom combined with bronze bushings and oil-impregnated bronze thrust washers provide for easy rotation and superior load positioning
  • Formed bracket fittings provide for greater reliability. No welds in tension, all bolts are in double shear for increased strength
  • Single tie rod, right hand threaded at both ends for easy boom adjustment and installation

Gorbel Wall Cantilever Jib Crane

Wall Cantilever Jib Cranes

A Wall Cantilever jib crane provides hoist coverage and 200° rotation for individual use in bays, along walls or columns of plants, or as an addition to an overhead crane or monorail system. The jib has the advantage of providing maximum lift for the hoist, since it can be installed very close to the underside of the lowest ceiling obstruction.

  • Capacity up to 10,000 lbs. 
  • Coverage: circular, standard spans to 20' 
  • 200° rotation 
  • Requires a structurally adequate wall or column to mount to 
  • Welded or bolted connection depending on bracket centers


  • Requires very little headroom, so it can be installed very close to the underside of ceilings to provide maximum lift for your hoist

Gorbel Mast Type Jib Crane

Mast Type Jib Cranes

Mast Type jib cranes are floor supported, top stabilized, and capable of 360° rotation via a top and bottom bearing assembly. The efficient design usually requires no special foundation, and makes them the most cost effective of the 360° rotation jib styles.

  • Capacity up to 10,000 lbs. 
  • Coverage: circular, Standard spans to 20' 
  • MT400 Full Cantilever - Provides maximum amount of lift where full use of available headroom is desired 
  • MT450 Drop Cantilever - Jib boom can be placed at a specific height to clear overhead obstructions 
  • 360° rotation


  • No special foundation is required, making it the most economical of our 360° rotation jibs 
  • Full Cantilever option provides the maximum amount of lift where full use is available headroom is desired 
  • The drop cantilever option allows for specific placement of the boom to clear overhead obstructions
