Lifting manual cranes to new heights

Global Track, designed and manufactured in Australia by machinery expert Greg McKay, features the world’s longest functional manual crane bridge.

Greg’s unique design has taken the manual bridge crane to a staggering 15m – a world first.

The system uses fixed side rails with an oscillating, articulating and pivoting bridge.

Add to this a unique ball pivot and articulated cross-travel U-hanger and you have the world’s longest functional manual crane bridge.

So impressed was Mark Pesci, judge at the ABC’s New Inventors program, he told a national TV audience: “I think it really changes the way you look at something that was previously static and make it flexible and dynamic.”

Greg McKay’s Global Track is redefining the concept of manual bridge cranes with the development of a revolutionary pivotal system.

Because the system requires far less effort, the size of the bridge can be greatly increased.
