Secondhand Kone Cranes
Single Girder used Kone overhead cranes. 5t and 3t safe working loads.
We have just removed 9 secondhand Kone used cranes from a factory in Coventry, a former supplier to JLR.
How are the gantry cranes removed?
Our crane removal team removed each crane with a 6t safe working load fork lift truck, using a certified lifting jib attachment. They also had two scissor lifts on site to assist while working at height. Once lifted down the cranes have the end carriages, electrical festoon and crane control panels removed for easy storage. The beams are stored outside in the yard while the hoists, carriages and panels are stored inside.
Can I make a second hand gantry crane wider?
Currently the 9 cranes are 7m span. This can be altered to reach up to 12.6m (12600mm) span if required as the end carriages are 1800mm wheel centres. We keep to a maximum of 1/7th of the end carriages wheel centres for the cranes maximum span. Therefore a 1800mm wheel based pair of end carriages will suit a crane width of up to 12,600mm span.
How long does it take to remove an overhead crane?
We had allowed three days to remove all 9 cranes pictured. However on arrival at site on a Wednesday morning the seller informed us they close at lunchtime on Fridays. Luckily it wasn’t an issue as all 9 cranes were removed, dismantled and loaded to transport by the Friday morning.
Delivery, supporting steelwork, installation, load testing and commissioning available on request with these 3200 and 5000 kilos second hand Kone cranes.
How much does a 3.2t crane weigh, at 7 meters span?
These cranes are 1300kgs at their current span. At 12 meters wide it would be nearer to 1769kgs. Weights are based on single girder design.
