Portable Floor and Shop Crane Products

Ruger Industries, a division of the David Round Company, designs and makes highly maneuverable floor cranes, also known as engine hoists or shop cranes. These portable crane products provide many ergonomic benefits compared to traditional lift trucks. Ruger makes both full power floor crane as well as manual floor crane items. We also manufacture specialty material handling equipment, such as stainless steel lift tables.

Ergonomic Benefits

Ruger’s portable crane products can help eliminate many backbreaking activities while easily navigating standard door openings, narrow aisles and elevators. As highly maneuverable material handling equipment, our floor cranes are often seen as safer, smaller and less expensive alternatives to conventional fork lifts. Many items we produce reduce or eliminate the need for motorized lift trucks, a goal of numerous safety managers.
