Thern Inc., in conjunction with the Caldwell Group, announces the development of a new portable winch boom to help material handling operators with their specialized lifting needs. Conveniently mounted on standard fork lifts via "fork pockets" and operating on standard 110VAC power supply, the winch boom quickly converts a forklift into a portable crane. With a lifting capacity of up to 2,400 pounds, this unit is suited for small and mid-sized loads.
With its compact, portable design, this new winch boom combines the lifting capacity of more expensive overhead cranes with the maneuverability of a fork lift. The winch boom combination also allows for extended reach and provides below ground-level lifting and lowering capabilities to reach into spaces where a forklift mast cannot reach.
