We often receive calls from customers asking what’s the difference between a Davit and a Jib. Although it may seem that they have many similar characteristics, in truth, there isn’t much passed the fact they are both used for lifting and lowering loads.

Here are just a few of the distinguishing features of a Davit Arm, and why it might just be a better choice for you.

  • When mounting a Davit, just six inches of reinforced concrete (or other suitable foundation) is required.
  • Increase flexibility thanks to the telescopic boom with adjustable angles.
  • Highly customisable with a range of finishes, sockets, and extensions.
  • Safe rotation away from loads increases safety
  • Easier operation as the winch is located at the back of Davit rather than a hoist attached to the load.
  • Lighter and more portable than a Swing Jib.
  • More suitable for longer distance lifts, as a wire rope hoist lifts faster than a conventional chain hoist.

Both Davit and Jib Crane are highly useful pieces of kit, for a wide range of heavy lifting tasks, but for those up to 1 Tonne, a the functionality, portability, and adjustability of a Davit Arm can more often than not outweigh the higher costs and rigidity of a Swing Arm Crane.
