Jib crane

The pillar is made of a special circular and / or octagonal steel self-bearing section pipe, which guarantees a perfect strength. The pillar is equipped with a base plate at the bottom for the anchoring of the foundation and at the top with a pierced flange adjusted for the fixing of the bearing.
