Non-Power Drive Gantry Cranes
Change forklift batteries in vertical-extraction fleets with a Non-Power Drive Gantry Crane (PGC) from BHS. These powder-coated, all-steel gantry cranes are available with 2-ton or 3-ton capacities to match virtually any battery fleet.
Manually push the PGC along the optional Single Guidance Track for floor travel, or choose the Floor Mount option, which creates a permanent, highly stable Gantry Crane wherever you see fit.
Building the Ideal Gantry Crane Battery Changing System
Non-Power Drive Gantry Cranes offer a range of options to customize your battery room gantry. Start by choosing between heavy-duty phenolic casters or a rigid Floor Mount. Then choose an underbeam clearance — most units come with a standard 10-foot clearance, but custom sizes are also available.
Complete your Gantry Crane system with a hoist and trolley, tracks, and Battery Lifting Beams. Here are just a few of the options:
- Choose between manual and motorized trolleys, in either a 2- or 3-ton capacity. Hoist are easy to control with hand-held pendants.
- Pick a Battery Lifting Beam with capacities of up to 6,000 pounds. Most beams fit most brands of forklift batteries, although some Lifting Beams were designed specifically for Load Hog and Super Load Hog batteries.
- Select V-Groove Dual Guidance Track or Single Guidance Track, then add Track End Stops, either with or without rubber bumpers. Track helps Non-Powered gantries move along a straight path for applications that require floor travel.
