Geared Beam Trolley
Geared Beam Trolley in Use

Geared Beam trolleys are essentially the same device as the plain trolley with one major exception. Geared beam trolleys feature wheels that are fitted with gears and chain. The trolley is designed so that when either side of the chain is pulled, the gears and wheels of the trolley will move back and forth along the beam flange, allowing the operator to more precisely move a load from one place to the other.

Offset Pin for Geared Beam Trolleys Offset Pin for Geared Beam Trolleys
It is important to note that for geared beam trolleys, the hanger pin may need to be offset so it will not come into contact with the hand wheel. This can be accomplished by placing the required amount of washers to the hanger pin on both sides of the side plates.
Place Trolley on Beam
With the trolley loosely assembled, spread the side plates allowing the trolley wheels to be placed over the beam flange, so that the trolley will properly sit on the beam.
Tighten Nuts to Washers
Tighten the nuts against the washers.
Insert Safety Pin
Insert the safety pins that are provided.
