A line of jib cranes boost usability with minimal structural limitations for safer, more accurate operation. Features include an adjustable console bearing that enables easy beam adjustments during operation and minimizes uncontrolled trolley and jib beam movements. For enhanced safety, an emergency disconnect switch is located on the pillar or wall, and the chain hoist has a separate emergency stop button on the pendant. The cranes are offered in wall-mounted and free-standing styles and in two profiles: I-beam under-braced for higher capacities and optimal lift heights, and XM over-braced for light and easy movement and generous hook approach. Both models have a maximum capacity of 2 tons. Konecranes, 800-934-6976,
