OZ Lifting Launches Davit Crane Wheel Base

Winona, Minnesota-based OZ Lifting Products LLC has launched a wheel base that can be used with its full range of davit cranes up to 1,200 lbs. capacity.

The USA-made wheel base is adjustable and has four different length positions: it measures from 56.57” to 77.57” long; 32.44” wide; and 36.87” high. It weighs 140 lbs. when fully assembled, without a crane’s pedestal base, so total weight will depend on the davit being used. Wheel bases will be shipped on a pallet and require assembly at the point of use.

Offering durable steel construction with powder-coat finish, oversized casters make rolling the base and moving the crane easy. The wheel base features a patented floor anchoring system, which allows the davit to rotate 360 degrees, even when under load. The manufacturer will part-number and sell the wheel bases with the pedestal base to match the davit crane the user wants. This will make the process straightforward for the customer.

The base will be compatible with the majority of the company’s cranes, including the 500 lbs. and 1,200 lbs. capacity versions of the Tele-Pro, which allows users to leverage the benefits of other lifting technologies in its range, while telescoping the boom in and out under load.

It will also be widely utilized with the Alumi-Lite series of ultra-portable davit cranes, an aluminum series targeted specifically at applications where portability is beneficial; the XR Series; and the steel davit crane. In each of these cases, 500 lbs. and 1,000 lbs. models are available. The CompOZite and CompOZite Elite carbon fiber models, meanwhile, are both offered in 1,200 lbs. capacities.

Having previewed the wheel base at the recent Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) in Chicago, OZ Lifting will show it at the AHR Expo (Booth S10534), which takes place January 22-24, 2024, also at McCormick Place. The wheel base will be showcased alongside the full range of davits at an expo that attracts a delegation of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) professionals.

OZ Lifting is preparing for a January 1, 2024 launch, with the product likely to be drop-shipped to the end customer.
