Beam Trolleys

While some beam attachments are designed to stay in a fixed place a beam trolley enables lateral movement across a beam or RSJ and boasts many benefits which are discussed below. Here you will find 3 types of beam trolleys for lifting tasks; a push travel beam trolley is manually pushed across a beam whilst the most popular geared travel trolley requires the pull on a chain. For a trolley which requires no manual exertion you will need an electric beam trolley. Check out each type more closely to ensure you get the best trolley for your requirements.

Basic Features & Benefits of a Beam Trolley

There are different varieties of a beam trolley or girder trolley which include a push travel trolley, a geared trolley or an electric beam trolley. One of the strengths in regards to a beam trolley is the fact that it provides a mobile lifting platform which is ideally suited for a variety of uses. At Lifting Gear Direct, we are proud to offer only the most trusted brand names in regards to these extremely strong beam trolley devices.


Industrial grade beam trolleys 

The attachment of any model is simple and as they are able to support weights of up to twenty thousand kilograms, even the most challenging of jobs can be completed with ease.

While the strength of these trolleys cannot be denied, we must also remember that many industries will need items to be lifted securely from one location to another. Thanks to modern technology and sturdy construction, such transport is as easy as it is safe. Thankfully, the top models can be found easily within this site; further questions can be addressed with the use of our online enquiry form.


Push travel trolley

The most mechanically simple and cost-conscious beam trolleys you can buy will be those designed for push travel purposes. 

The genius of these trolleys is in their simplicity; rather than relying on a separate power source to move from A to B, they can be manoeuvred simply through the physical efforts of the operator. This not only makes them affordable, but also means that they are simple to set up and require minimal maintenance, even if they are subject to equipment inspection requirements

One of the most popular push travel beam trolleys on our site is our own-brand model, which provides load capacities starting at 500kg and rising to 5 tonnes on the largest of the lot. We also offer trolleys from other brands, including the Yale HTP which is a range consisting of 10 different models that are designed for different payloads as well as different beam types. 


Geared travel trolley

For a simpler approach to trolley mobility, a geared travel model offers an integrated chain which can be pulled to shift it along the width of the beam as necessary. 

These trolleys are a little more mechanically complex than standard push trolleys and can offer excellent variability in terms of size and capacity, with some models topping out with WLLs of 20 tonnes. 

While the geared, chain-controlled mechanism is effective, efficient and precise, it still manages to avoid relying on any kind of third party power source, which is an obvious benefit from use in locations where one is not available. 


Electric travel trolley

There are lots of reasons to buy beam trolleys which are powered by electric motors over their manually operated counterparts. 

First of all, you may prefer this design because of the improved speed it provides, as well as the fact that it will not involve as many risks to the operator as the alternative. 

Secondly the smooth, consistent performance provided by an electric motor can outdo push or geared trolleys. Finally there is the convenience and improved productivity that comes with using an electric trolley which cannot be found elsewhere. 


Suitable beam trolley accessories

Regardless of the beam trolley you buy, you will need to make sure that it is also accompanied by the lifting accessories that will allow it to be used as intended. Thankfully the Lifting Gear Direct site is the best place to encounter all of the possible add-ons you might need and we can supply everything in unison so you can get on with the task at hand quicker. 

From lifting shackles that are designed for lots of different load bearing purposes, to eye bolts, snatch blocks, hoists and much more besides, the options are almost unending.
