Sumner Manufacturing made upgrades to its all-aluminum GH2T gantry lift. The GH2 has a lift capacity of up to 4,400 pounds and is available in sizes from 8 feet to 15 feet. Upgrades to the GH2T include A-frame legs that lock in opened or closed positions using a push-button release and casters with foot brake that lock at 90-degree angles. The new design eliminates the need for a locking cross bar to hold legs in the open position. The gantry consists of two A-frames, a cross beam and attaching hardware. An adjustable lifting handle allows height adjustments to be made in 6-inch increments. Each A-frame has two 8-inch lockable casters and weighs 113 pounds with casters. The trolley features a set screw that when tightened to the beam holds it in place during assembly, and a positioning handle.
