Jib Cranes


Jib crane sales and installations are a major focus for Crane-Tec. Jib cranes are an economical solution for moving materials within an individual workstation. Jib cranes are also an economical solution for transferring materials from work area to work area and for use as an auxiliary lifting device under an overhead crane. Crane-Tec offers hundreds of Abell-Howe Jib Cranes. Crane-Tec has over 30 years experience installing and servicing Abell-Howe jib cranes. It’s because of Abell-Howe’s high quality and commitment to jib crane quality that Crane-Tec has never carried or sold a different line of jib cranes.
