SOLON, OH - January 9, 2009 - Ruger Industries, Inc., www.rugerindustries.com
, has announced a new series of stainless steel hydraulic floor cranes. These cranes are more versatile than jib cranes and more mobile than gantry cranes. Their stainless steel construction makes them appropriate for pharmaceutical manufacturing, clean room, electronics manufacturing or food processing applications.
Many firms use Ruger® floor cranes as safer, smaller and less expensive alternatives to tow motor-type lift trucks. They offer significant ergonomic benefits, as they eliminate many backbreaking activities while easily navigating standard door openings, narrow aisles and elevators.
Ruger manufactures both manual and full power floor cranes in stainless steel. Lifting capacities range from 2000 lbs. up to 6000 lbs. Custom engineered units can be designed for specialty application by the company's on-site engineering staff.
All Ruger products are constructed for continuous industrial use. They feature structural tubing of 1/4" to 1/2" wall thickness, large lubricated casters and totally welded fabrication. Although they contain more than twice the metal as many competitive cranes with the same lifting rating, they are easy to maneuver.
