03-18-13 What's NewThe lightweight, portable, easily assembled, all-aluminum GH2T Gantry Lift has been upgraded. It has a lift capacity of up to 2 metric tons (4,400 pounds) and is available in four Imperial sizes (8, 10, 12, and 15 foot) and three metric sizes (3, 4, and 5 meters). Upgrades to the GH2T gantry include A-frame legs that lock in opened or closed position, utilizing a push-button release and casters with foot brake that lock at 90-degree angles. The new design of the A-frame assembly eliminates the need for a locking crossbar to hold legs in the open position. The lift consists of two A-frames, a crossbeam, and attaching hardware. An adjustable lifting handle allows height adjustments to be made in 6-inch (15 cm) increments. Each A-frame has two 8-inch (200 mm) lockable casters. Crossbeams come in seven sizes and have nylon carrying handles at both ends. The GH2T gantry assembly is specifically designed to be erected by a two-man crew. Minimum and maximum heights from ground to lifting eye are 83 inches (2.1 m) and 113 inches (2.8 m) respectively. The stored height of the A-frame is 100 inches (2.5 m). Gantry models weigh between 285-331 pounds (146.5 and 129.2 kg).
