Davit Cranes

Vector Lifting offer both custom manufactured Davit Cranes and Reid Aluminium Davit Cranes, covering all requirements for lifting and personnel recovery.

Vector Lifting Davit Cranes are designed for simple and miniatous free operation, whilst offering a robust, weather resistant construction suitable for heavy-duty applications. These davit cranes are used extensively in the wastewater industry, on dam walls and in areas where floor space and access are limited.

Vector Lifting also stocks the complete range of Reid Lifting Aluminium Davit Cranes, offering light weight, portable davit crane solutions.

Vector Lifting Davit Cranes

All Davit Cranes are available in a range of capacities and outreach, each offered with customisable features to suit site requirements. Cranes are rotated by either manual slew handle or hand operated mechanical drive for larger capacities, and are capable of infinite 360* slew. Cranes are also available with a jib-mounted winch or with single lifting eye.

Personnel Davit Cranes are also offered by Vector Lifting for confined space entry or personnel recovery. These cranes are custom designed to suit application and end user requirements.

Reid Porta Davit

With a safe lifting capacity of up to 500kg, made of lightweight aluminium and weighing just 24kg (fully assembled), the PORTA-DAVIT system is literally a one person ‘pick up and go’ lifting solution. Manufactured using REID Lifting’s innovative design, the PORTA-DAVIT bagged system can be easily transported by hand to any site that a single person can access.

The PORTA-DAVIT is available in several variations, including standard strop and winched versions, extended radius (e.g. WLL 350kg at 1500mm radius) and complete with a portable socket base (the PORTA-BASE), removing the need for a fixed socket installation.
