Shuttlelift's complete line-up features four innovative and diverse mobile gantry crane series designed to work in a variety of applications and industries. The four series include:
SL Series: The SL model is designed for lower duty cycle "pick and carry" type jobs. It is the most economical choice for handling large loads.
SB Series: The SB model is a single-beam mobile gantry crane designed for single point picks and tandem picking. For tandem picking this gantry crane works in conjunction with any conventional rubber-tired gantry crane that may already be onsite, regardless of brand. This crane is also a great indoor overhead crane alternative and does not require additional building infrastructure making it a budget friendly decision.
ISL Series: The ISL model is designed for higher duty cycles; it can handle a wide variety of load configurations and works well in unimproved terrain environments. A unique feature of this gantry crane is the pivot trunnion which allows the crane to flex when traveling over uneven terrain without causing structural damage.
DB Series: The DB model is a double-beam mobile gantry crane designed for long-term, heavy-duty cycle work in a moderate terrain environment. This mobile gantry crane is a strong economical player in the concrete and steel industries.
Shuttlelift is able to work with customers to propose the ideal lifting solution for their specific needs while factoring in important logistics such as load configurations, duty cycles, yard conditions, and the customer's economic situation.
