I am looking into a floor mount crane whats your opinion of them. I had an A frame lift, but when it was not in use it was in the way.

The only thing about it that will dissapoint you is that you did not get it a long time ago.

Do not know about that set up but in my shop I have an I-Beam with 2 trollies and 2 chain hoists on the trollies. It is 20 foot long so easy to split a tractor with that set up. I do plan to add another 20 foot to it so as to make it easy to bring things in from out side but just have not gotten around to it yet

I've been thinking about building one over my welding table for years, just can't justify it. Anything that I work on that is that big, I just work on under my bridge crane. It is 24-feet span with 40-feet power travel. The center legs are 8x 8x 1/2 wall square tube. The welding table is pushed up against one of these legs. I think it would be real easy to mount a swivel beam on this leg. Maybe one of these days I'll do it.
I would think the biggest problem with a floor mount jib crane is anchoring it to the floor. I would look into saw cutting, and chipping out the slab, dig about a 2-feet deep hole. Build a sole plate with bolts through it, and weldable grade rebar candy canes welded to the bottom, and top of the sole plate. Pour the sole plate in concrete.

I don't have any pictures. But we use several jib cranes with three two ton electric chain hoists that slide on rollers. The arm which is hinged on a pole that swings over to the support pole. Very handie to have.
