Why modernize?


  • If repair costs and downtime have been rising

  • If your needs have changed (more capacity, different application)

  • If there are concerns about load holding ability or ability to keep up with demands


Rather than replace the crane, General Crane can assess if modernizing is right for your application. Our experience with engineering, fabrication and installation will enable capacity upgrades, changing elevation or span, changing to variable frequency drive, or additional hoists or runouts.


Cranes need to be recertified periodically, as does any lifting equipment which has been subjected to unusual loads to ensure it is still capable of lifting and holding the rated capacity. Contact us to arrange for an engineering assessment.
