Girder trolleys, also known as beam trolleys or hoist trolleys, are mechanical devices used in material handling to move loads horizontally along a beam or girder. They are commonly used in industrial settings, construction sites, and warehouses to transport heavy items or equipment between locations. Girder trolleys are versatile and can be attached to various lifting equipment, such as hoists, chain blocks, or wire rope hoists, to facilitate horizontal movement. At Cromwell, we have a wide range of girder trolleys across a range load capacity, beam sizes, and safety features to suit your needs.
