Jib Crane Dimensions

Choosing the Right Jib Crane Size

At Givens, we are proud to provide customized jib cranes that are made to meet the needs of your unique business and job at hand using a variety of jib crane dimensions. Whether you're looking for specially-designed articulated jib cranes or stainless-steel jib cranes, our expert team has developed the reputation for designing and manufacturing some of the most light-weight cranes in the industry. 

It's important to note that not all jib cranes are created equally. The charts below can help you best identify which jib crane would be best suited for your specific application based on load capacity, HUB (Height Under Boom) as well as the specific boom length.
