Portable cranes are small overhead bridge-style crane systems that are small enough and robust enough to easily manoeuvre around the workplace.
The casters (i.e. rubber wheels) of a portable crane system give the eponymous portability, providing ease of movement to reposition and handle various loads throughout the facility.
Portable crane systems are ideal for workplaces with limited space and varying load sizes. Commonly used for heavy fabrication applications or outdoor yards, portable crane systems are typically used to lift and hold the load in place while it is being worked on, fabricated or assembled, and are specifically helpful for maintenance on hard-to-reach machinery or working in confined spaces.
The benefits of portable cranes are clearly apparent in their ability to be positioned with relative ease, providing a mobile lifting capability, with customised solutions available for almost all types of material and equipment handling. When not in use, portable cranes are easily moved and stored safely away to offer greater space saving and floor space flexibility.

The term “portable crane” covers a wide range of mobile crane solutions, with a variety of overhead bridge designs. The defining feature of a portable crane is the portability, but the durability and ease of use are also important lesser-known considerations, alongside maximum loading weight capacity.
A few common portable crane types include:
