Electric Davit Cranes
Davits fitted with electric winches constitute as Electric Davit Cranes, typically the winch is the only motorized part of the crane and the boom rotation and/or extension is controlled manually. Nearly all of our cranes are available with powered winches fitted, but did you know you could save money by selecting a winch like the Thern M2 Worm Gear winch that has drill-drive capability? That's right, you could have a manual winch which enables you to power it using a cordless drill or the included manual handle, not all Electric Davit Cranes have to break the bank!
What is the difference between a Jib Crane and a Davit Crane?
A Jib Crane is typically a larger and more heavy-duty structure designed to be installed and not easily moved. Jib cranes are intended to be a permanent installation and are significantly more expensive due to their size and ability in comparison to a Davit. Jibs can be manufactured significantly taller and with a much longer reach. If the crane needs to reach more than a few feet then it's a good consideration to check them out.
