Hydraulic Gantries

Hydraulic gantries are a safe, efficient way to lift and position heavy loads in applications where traditional cranes will not fit and permanent overhead structures for job cranes are not an option. When used with rail systems, hydraulic gantries also provide a means for moving and placing heavy loads. Hydraulic gantries are a cost effective solution for many lifting and rigging applications.

Enerpac offers three series of hydraulic gantry systems:

  • Super Lift (SL) series: cost effective models that offers control and stability
  • Super Boom Lift (SBL) series: heavy duty hydraulic boom gantry models that go up to 1200 ton capacity
  • Mega Boom Lift (MBL) series: hydraulic boom gantry models which deliver the stability to utilize a 2 leg configuration and can achieve lifting heights over 40 feet

Enerpac hydraulic gantries have a number of unique features to ensure optimum stability and safety: self-contained hydraulics and electrics, self-propelled wheels or tank rollers, and the Intellilift wireless control system. Intellilift provides the operator with information about the stroke, lift and load per unit and it automatically corrects any unsynchronised motion of the individual units.

Enerpac offers a range of accessories to complete the gantry system: header beams, skid tracks, side shift systems and lifting lugs.
