Wallace Adjustable Height Workstation or Mighty-Mite Cranes

Workstation Crane, also known as the Mighty-Mite, from Wallace Cranes is an adjustable height 1/4 to 1/2 ton capacity crane

For less demanding applications, Wallace offers workstation or adjustable height cranes. These “Mighty-Mite” Cranes have ¼ and ½ ton capacities. They are ideal for home/automotive, office and light industrial use. Unlike most workstations, Mighty-Mite stands on its own frame. In addition to making simple height and span adjustments, you have the flexibility to straddle your work area allowing even more freedom of movement.

Might-Mites are engineered with the same standard of excellence built into every Wallace Crane. The Mighty-Mite is an all-steel lightweight portable design. These cranes are mounted on protective rubber pads however 6″ flat tread casters are available (see below). Other accessories include manual or powered trolleys and hoists and optional track mounting with V-groove casters.
