Press release date: November 5, 2012

Sumner Manufacturing, the industry leader in pipe and material handling equipment, announces new GH2T Gantry Lift for mechanical contractors.

Houston, TX – Sumner Manufacturing announces upgrades to their lightweight, portable and easily assembled all-aluminum GH2T Gantry Lift. The GH2T Gantry lift has a lift capacity of up to 2 metric tons (4,400 lbs) and is available in 4 Imperial sizes (8, 10, 12 and 15 foot) and 3 Metric sizes (3, 4 and 5 meters).

Upgrades to the GH2T Gantry include A-frame legs that lock in opened or closed position utilizing a push-button release and casters with foot brake that lock at 90 degree angles. The new design of the A-frame assembly eliminates the need for a locking cross bar to hold legs in the open position.

The Sumner GH2T Gantry lift consists of two A-frames, a cross beam and attaching hardware.  A-frame legs lock in folded position using a push-button release and feature a removable quick-action locking pin. An adjustable lifting handle allows height adjustments to be made in 6-inch (15 cm) increments. Each A-frame has two 8-inch (200 mm) lockable casters and weighs 113 lbs (51 kg) with casters. The trolley features a set screw that when tightened to the beam holds it in place during assembly, and a convenient positioning handle. The trolley weighs approximately 15 lbs (6.8 kg). Cross beams come in seven sizes (8, 10, 12 and 15 foot; 3, 4 & 5 meter) and have nylon carrying handles at both ends. 5 m and 15 foot beams feature two span adjustments on either end of 13-inches (33 cm). 8 foot beams have no span adjustments. The GH2T Gantry assembly is specifically designed to be erected by a two-man crew.

Minimum and maximum heights from ground to lifting eye are 83-inches (2.1 m) and 113-inches (2.8 m) respectively. Maximum height to the top of the trolley is 113.5-inches (3.4 m). The maximum width of the A-frame when erected is 60.75-inches (1.54 m). The stored height of the A-frame is 100-inches (2.5 m). Gantry models weigh between 285 and 331 lbs (146.5 and 129.2 kg).
