O’Brien offers one of North America’s largest ranges of jib cranes. A technical data book of standard jib crane solutions from up to 40,000lbs capacity is available on request. Specially engineered jib cranes are produced in capacities up to 80,000lbs.

The two basic formats of a jib crane are free standing and wall mounted, each of which may be equipped with chain or wire rope hoists. We offer under- and over-braced jib arms to maximize lift or travel.

Free standing jib cranes can be constructed for maximum slewing angles of 360 degrees. We offer a variety of fixing solutions including anchor bolts and wall plates.

Since 1985, we have been a licensed partner with Vetter Krantechnik providing the best quality of jib cranes in North America.

All of our jib cranes are designed and manufactured in Canada.
