June 19, 2013 – The David Round Company has announced a higher capacity Roto-Mate Jib Crane Motorization kits, which provide powered rotation to either existing or new wall-mounted or freestanding jib cranes with up to 10-ton loads. The Roto-Mate kit claim to reduce or eliminate injuries resulting from workers trying to either start or stop the motion of a swinging crane, a significant source of strains and back injuries. The 10-ton version of the Roto-Mate is a customized product, based on the highly successful smaller capacity units. One-half to five-ton motorization kits are available as standard products.
