Shop Crane 1/2 Ton Capacity Lifting System

Product Code: #SC1000
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.

By spreading the weight of the load over the bridge and runways of the crane, moving and positioning a full 1000 pound load becomes a safe and easy one-person job.

Shop Crane is available in multiple configurations that were tailored to maximize the space of standard garages. When selecting a configuration for your shop, the primary dimensions you will choose are the system’s span and height.

Lifting Capacity

The lifting capacity of the 1/2 Ton Shop Crane system is 1000 pounds for a live load. This means that the weight of your choice in lifting device has been factored in and does not count against the available capacity.


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.
