Here are some common questions asked by customers. If your question hasn't been answered, send us a message.

Adding a motorized trolley or hoist is a common upgrade for jib cranes. The rotation of the jib crane can also be motorized. This is usually preferred when dealing with higher capacities.
The majority of jib cranes require a heavy concrete foundation. The size of this foundation varies up to 6' x 6' x 6' with reinforced footers. PWI also offers a Foundationless Jib Crane that mounts onto 6" concrete slab floors.
Most of PWI's standard jib cranes ship in 2 – 3 weeks. But the lead time for custom jib cranes is 4 – 6 weeks.
