Hydraulic Gantry Systems


Riggers Manufacturing Company produced the first commercially available hydraulic gantry system in 1980.  Built to last, most units are still working in the field today and meet or exceed current safety standards.


Each leg of the Riggers’ EZLifter hydraulic gantry system is a complete self-contained unit consisting of an electric motor, hydraulic pump, hydraulic control valves, reservoir, and a planetary gear drive transmission for propelling the gantry leg.


The EZLifter has four hydraulic cylinders per gantry leg fastened to a header plate with swivel connections.  This lifting platform provides rock solid stability and safe, reliable operation.  The gantry legs travel forward or reverse on a track.  They are driven by a hydraulic motor, and controlled from the pendant control.


Once at the jobsite, an EZLifter hydraulic gantry can be set up and ready to operate in less than two hours.  Minimal assembly is required.  Just set the gantry on its tracks, plug it in and it’s ready to lift.


The EZLifter is easy to operate.  The controls are operated with one joystick.  Digital readouts of height and pressure are provided to guide the operator.  The CARL Control System monitors AND synchronizes lift, travel, and side shifting.  The system activates easily understood warning lights when any of the three dimensions are out of alignment.  The control console is a 7 pound pendant making it easy to move to the best observation post and travel with the load.


The EZLifter is powered by electricity.  Small electric cables connect the gantry to the control panel, avoiding the mess of hydraulic hoses.
