Stiff-Leg and Guy Derrick Cranes
A derrick is an engineered structure, attached to a foundation, powered by an independent hoist. Its geometric design offers a higher efficiency than a conventional crane. With a low gross weight and small footprint, a derrick is often a superior solution when compared to a significantly larger conventional crane. It is ideal for a variety of industries and job sites such as power generation, bridge construction, rooftop material handling, tower crane dismantling, duty cycle applications, and steel erection. Whether tower or barge mounted or installed on a movable sled to lift directly from a bridge deck, as shown above, a derrick offers a vast amount of versatility. From 2.5 ton to 500 ton capacity, let us help you find an alternative lifting solution for your next project.
