Bushman Equipment, Inc. offers a complete line of quality-built jib cranes and jib crane attachments to meet the most demanding material handling requirements. There are various jib crane models from which to choose: floor-mounted pillar types; top and bottom-supported units; wall or column-mounted versions; and models that afford manual or motorized rotation. Bushman specializes in custom-engineered jib cranes for unique applications. Built to the highest industry standards, Bushman jib cranes have earned a reputation for ruggedness and durability.
Heavy duty A-Series floor mounted jib cranes are designed and constructed for industrial use with years of trouble-free service. Jib cranes are available either with a base plate for floor mounting or without a base for mounting the pillar directly into a concrete foundation.
The jib crane boom is fabricated out of a steel I-beam or a wide flange beam and has removable end stops. A machined lower roller carriage is housed in the jib crane head section that features heavy steel side plates. The lower roller carriage is mounted on adjustable tension bolts to allow for field adjustments. The support column for the jib crane is constructed out of steel pipe with a heavy base plate and reinforcing gussets.
Motorized rotating jib cranes are widely used to control or position the load in an area that is generally inaccessible to material handling equipment, or where the load, weight or duty cycle make it impractical to employ manual rotation.
Bushman Equipment, Inc. motorized jib cranes are designed to provide reliable, long-life performance with minimal maintenance.
In addition to the standard jib crane construction features, these motorized units include motor, variable speed electronic drive, heavy-duty chain drive, pintle pin and reducer. Optional equipment includes current collector rings for 360° continuous electrification, and tagline assembly for festooned hoist conductor cables. Control push buttons are usually incorporated into the hoist push button station to facilitate operator control (push button optional).
The motorized drive rotation of the jib boom typically provides a rotation speed of 1/2 RPM, but speeds up to 1 RPM are available.

This new Motorized Jib Crane Drive Kit can be added to any new or existing heavy duty jib crane. The kit can be field installed and provides 360 degree powered boom rotation. (Note: A top entry electrical collector used in conjunction with the RMD100 drive kit is recommended for 360 degree rotation.) The drive kit is available in 230/460 volt, 3 phase, 60 hertz, electrical power with 115 volt control circuit.
Bushman can now provide a retrofit package to upgrade manual jib cranes to motorized units, complete with electrical controls and a pendant. The kit comes with everything that needed for installation.
The RMD100 Motorized Drive Kit is available for jib cranes with capacities up to five tons and maximum boom length of 20 feet.
Wall Mounted jib cranes are constructed from high grade steel components and are designed for trouble free use. The hinges are equipped with self-lubricating Teflon bearings and hardened pins. Wall mounted cranes are primed and finished with Safety Yellow enamel. Other colors are available. Please contact the factory for details. Wall mounted jib cranes are available in two styles, each one with standard boom lengths up to 20 feet and capacity up to 6,000 pounds.
This style of wall mounted jib crane is ideal when maximum head room is needed for your lifting application. The boom has 180° of manual rotation. Please contact the factory for other options and accessories.
The overbraced tie rod wall mounted jib crane provides economical hook coverage with 180° manual rotation. The tie rod has threaded ends and will allow easy field adjustments. Assembly required at installation.
These jib cranes are particularly useful when ceiling height is limited. They can be mounted to a wall or column within three inches of the ceiling, providing valuable additional inches of lifting range. Entirely self-supporting, without tie rods or other bracing, the jib crane can be installed with the girder at maximum available height and with very little clearance necessary.
This new fully portable jib crane eliminates any need for costly site preparation and footing expenses required for conventional floor mount jib cranes. The design of this jib allows easy transportation around the shop floor by fork truck. This means it can serve multiple uses and applications. It can be used in upper floors of your facility and then stored out of the way. Portable jibs are available in standard design capacities of 250, 500 and 1,000 pounds. Boom lengths up to 14 feet are available.

The jib is mounted onto an existing outdoor gantry crane at a nuclear power plant in California. The Super Jib required seismic calculations, special surface preparation with epoxy paint, and powered rotation. To the satisfaction of our customer, Bushman Equipment, Inc. designed and built this impressive piece in eight weeks.
