Harbor Freight Gantry Crane

A gantry crane is a serious purchase. Not only are they expensive, but they are relied upon to lift seriously heavy objects. It is not worth it to try and save a few bucks on a crane of inferior quality.

Not only will they cost you more money in the long run by breaking down faster, they will also cause frustration when they are not able to perform the task they were meant to. Lastly, they can be a serious danger if they are not able to properly hold the heavy item you are trying to lift.

That is why we put together this list of cranes that are better than the harbor freight version. All of them are well tested, and able to be purchased online.
