J D Neuhaus hydraulic cranes are a practical alternative to compress-air products for any lifting/handling operations. The range of cranes available includes single- and double-girder overhead traveling cranes, slewing jib cranes, and underslung cranes that incorporate special low-headroom trolley designs. Cranes with parallel hoists and synchronized lifting hoist arrangements also can be supplied, with individual hoist capacities up to 100 tons.

J D Neuhaus specializes at providing crane systems adapted to suit individual requirements. This may include remote radio control of the crane lift and traverse operations, covering comprehensive application requirements and even simultaneous operation of multiple hoists. Control boxes with receiver also can be customized to suit specific electro-hydraulic interface requirements, together with all necessary system tubing in stainless steel where required.

All equipment is designed and rated for use in explosion-endangered areas. The standard rating is EX II 2 GD IIA/II 3 GD IIB T4 (X), with higher classifications also available on request. “Super silent” operation is combined with sensitive, infinite controls, including controlled load-lowering in the event of supply oil failure, together with an integrated overload switch-off function. Oil or HFC pressure fluids can be used at intake pressures of 100 to 180 bar. Only two supply connections are required per hoist with leakage oil drained internally for maximum safety.
