Thrifty Gantry Cranes

Wallace Thrifty gantry cranes are an economical alternative to our tri-adjustable cranes. They come in fixed and adjustable heights and have the greatest clear span of all our gantries.

Manufactured and assembled in the USA, Thrifties are very popular with contractors who need highly portable lift equipment they can easily load and unload from their service trucks. Many aluminum models can be hand-carried. For example, our smallest aluminum Thrifty has a ship weight of only 135 pounds.

Thrifty spans range from 8 to 35 feet. Depending on the model, the clear span is 6′ 10″ to 33′ 6″.
