Traditionally, lift trucks have been used in the industrial sector to lift various machines and objects. But in the recent past, a shop crane has been observed to be more efficient and faster in carrying out similar tasks. This is what has led to the rise in demand for such cranes. And the market has responded favorably to this rising demand by offering some high quality products meant for heavy-duty applications.

These cranes are either mechanically operated or can also be manually operated depending on where they need to be used. Of late, hydraulic shop cranes have also made their presence felt in the market and are preferred because they offer very smooth and precise movement. Such cranes are also known as a portable crane.

Let's look at some of the main features of a shop crane:

*These cranes can be used to lift objects weighing anywhere between 2000 lbs to 6000 lbs. This means that small to medium-sized machines can be easily lifted by these cranes.

*Since the height of such a crane can be adjusted, it can be used to lift and move an object that is up to 12 feet high.

*The mechanical as well as manual cranes offer extreme accuracy in positioning. So you can be sure about placing an object in just the right place with the use of such a crane.

If you are planning to purchase a crane for use on your shop floor, it is also important to be aware of the features that go into making a great crane. Here are important points that you should bring up in your discussion with a crane manufacturer or dealer:

*Does the manufacturing process of the crane adhere to the current industry standards?

*How rugged and well-built is the machine? Can it be used to lift heavy loads effectively from one place to another?

*Is the shop crane capable of being used in extreme temperatures and is it spark and explosion proof?

*How much is the guarantee and warranty being offered by the manufacturer and is it an all-inclusive warranty or is it a limited one?

*Is the hydraulic lift cylinder being used in the lift up to the mark?

*In the case of a self-propelled portable crane, what is the speed that the crane can achieve and does it include features such as an auto-reverse option?

By asking these questions, you will certainly be in a better position to choose the best shop crane. It is always advisable to check and compare the products being offered by multiple manufacturers before you reach a final decision. Since most manufacturers have a presence on the internet, you can carry out your basic research online.
