If working condition require wider leg clearance space and higher working speed, and often to lift heavy and big object, double girder is much better to choose.88FHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

When gantry crane don't work, the hook should be 0.5m higher to vehicles; cargo is 0.5m away from legs when it is though out from legs.88FHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

  • Principle of determining wheel track
  1.  Meet crane’s traveling stability along rail direction.
  2. Object’s max out dimension can through the leg clearance.
