Take a look at the beam
trolleys we offer with geared travel mechanisms
built in to provide a quick, easy option for lateral movement. Paired with a lifting gantry or jib crane, this kind of beam attachment will be a
productive investment. If you only need a static beam attachment then a
simple beam clamp may be a cheaper option for you rather than an RSJ beam
trolley. Read on below to find out all the benefits of a geared trolley
While push travel trolleys are almost entirely manual in their operation and electric trolleys rely on a main source of power to perform as intended, a geared travel trolley sits somewhere between the two, arguably offering the best of both worlds.
Movement is controlled through a chain-based pulley which makes it possible to shift the trolley along a beam in either direction with a decent amount of precision. This approach also means that the amount of effort required to achieve this is reduced.
When considering which trolley to buy, be sure to take not only the brand but also the performance specifications into account. This is important from a safety point of view, while also having implications in terms of how effectively you can use the trolley you choose.
Load capacities vary, although you can expect the smallest geared travel trolleys to provide at least half a tonne of load bearing potential. Meanwhile, the most sizeable units should be able to shoulder 5 tonnes or more, depending on the individual designs.
We can supply beam trolleys of all kinds, as well as lifting equipment from a plethora of other categories and manufacturers. All you need to do to ask us a question about our products or get a quote is email our experts or give them a quick call today on 01384 76961.
