Outdoor Gantry Crane

An outdoor gantry crane is a type of lifting equipment used for handling heavy loads in outdoor environments, such as shipping yards, construction sites, and manufacturing facilities. It consists of a framework with horizontal beams supported by vertical legs, creating a gantry-like structure. The crane is typically mounted on wheels or rails to provide mobility and flexibility in moving loads horizontally.
