Single Girder, Top Running, Hand Geared Overhead Cranes

Uesco Cranes builds several different configurations of single girder cranes designed around customer requirements. The single girder, top running, hand geared crane line of features capacities from 2 tons to 10 tons. These cranes do not require electrification, and they are ideal for applications requiring accurate load spotting, spark resistance, where electric motors are not required, or where electricity may not be readily available. The trolleys for hand-geared cranes use a looped hand chain which is attached to a hand chain wheel or sprocket. When the operator pulls the hand chain, the gears are engaged moving the trolley wheels. Each of these cranes has 6″ diameter machined steel wheels with a tapered tread for operation on ASCE rail. End trucks are fabricated from structural steel channels or plates welded to a rigid frame. You may use a variety of hoist types, but frequently hand chain hoists and lever chain hoists are preferred options with this type of crane.

Built of structural steel girders, which meet or exceed CMAA design specifications plus OSHA and ANSI standards, all of our overhead crane solutions have a minimum deflection of 1/600 with a built-in safety factor of 5 to 1. All Uesco overhead cranes are rated for a minimum CMAA Class C service. Spans are from 10′ to 40′ in length. We also custom fabricate runways in different configurations depending on your company’s requirements. Rubber bumpers and rail sweeps are standard on all cranes. All of our cranes, end trucks, and runway systems are made in the U.S.A.
