    Gantry crane for shed

    I made this gantry crane so I can move stuff around in my 14 x 20 shed. Put 2 I beams across the top plate and then welded 1/2” plates on each end of the main beam to hold the trolly. This is the best thing I did for storage so far. I put a half ton air chain hoist on a trolly and can move stuff anywhere in the shed.

    Made a bracket to pick up the snow blower and hang it on the wall for the off season

    Thanks. I will try to remember to take a few more pics tomorrow of the rollers. I bought a jet I beam trolly for each end and put a half on each end of the end plate.

    Nice work! That is something I will consider adding to a future garage build. Thanks for showing us.

    That’s exactly what I did. 1/2 ton jet dolly. It rolls very smooth with no binding. You just need to put bracing on the 2 cross beams to keep them from spreading.

    great idea to save $ and height.......those rollers are normally tapered so they would want to spread the beams ....in addition to braceing the beams you might also fabricate a stop that goes to the other side of the lower beam flange just as a safety (could even use the bolts)

    you certainly took advantage of every inch of headroom you had availible

    great inovative setup for sure though thanks for showing us
