Gorbel Shop Crane: A Non-Industrial 1/2 Ton Overhead Bridge Crane System

Gorbel Shop Crane is a non-industrial overhead bridge crane system that uses two parallel steel tracks, or runways, to guide a steel bridge over your work space. The bridge features a non-binding trolley that glides along the inside of the enclosed track to give you complete coverage within the frame of the system.

Gorbel’s Shop Crane is a type of crane hoist system that can be used in a residential garage or work shop. Great for vehicle restoration, maintenance on farm or golf course equipment , or getting your car, ATV, or snowmobile or any motor driven vehicle ready for action.

Shop Crane makes the lifting and moving of heavy loads easier for:

  • Racing shops
  • Automotive restoration
  • Boat/jet ski maintenance
  • ATV/Motorcycle work
  • Tractor repair
  • Snow plow removal
  • Fabrication workshops
  • Truck loading/unloading
  • Engine builders

Move Heavy Loads With Ease

Gorbel’s Shop Crane is a an overhead crane system that distributes the weight of your load over a system consisting of a bridge and two parallel runways. By spreading the weight out, movement and positioning of loads up to 2000 pounds becomes effortless.

No more positioning cherry picker wheels beneath an object, and no reason to recruit friends to help you with a job. Shop Crane turns the heavy lifting in your garage into a one person job.

Maximize Your Shop Space

With narrow support columns that can be tucked into your shop’s corners or next to your garage door, Shop Crane will give you full lifting coverage in your work bay without becoming an obstacle.

Worried about headroom? Shop Crane was designed to maximize the amount of lift possible in standard garages. The bridge runs along the top of the system’s runways, increasing the amount of usable area in your work bay.

Simple Installation

Shop Crane was designed for easy installation in your garage without a lot of assembly, special tools or forklifts. Gorbel’s components, while very strong, are light enough that two people will be able to lift them without difficulty. With common hand tools, two step ladders and a hammer drill, your Shop Crane system will be assembled and ready in just a couple of hours.

Gorbel Shop Crane Options / Specs

  • Available with 8’, 10’ and 12’ spans. The span, or width of the crane, is measured from the inside of a support column to the inside of the opposing column. For example, a system with an 8’ span would perfectly fit a garage door with an 8’ clearance.
  • Available with 8’, 10’ and 12’ heights. The actual overall height is 2-inches shorter than the displayed height to allow for free bridge movement beneath the ceiling. For example, a system with an 12’ height would move freely in a garage with a 12’ ceiling.
  • All Shop Cranes were designed to fit the depth of a single stall garage, and have a standard length of 190”, or 15’ 10”, from the outside edges of the column baseplates.
