Lifting beams are used to reduce forces being applied to loads as a result of non-vertical chains and straps.

This accessory includes a main beam and cross beams allowing lifting from two or four points, and the lifting points are adjustable.  The review set is in red (RAL 3002).  It is modelled on a real beam configuration with a capacity of 64 tons.


This model comes in a small box with the beams wrapped in tissue and the brackets contained in a small bag.  There are no chains or lifting straps included.

There are no instructions.

Detail and Features

All the parts are metal and painted well in a slightly matt finish.  There are no graphics applied.

The main beam can be used on its own with the two lifting plates which can have straps or chains fitted.  The plates can be set at any position allowing a lifting width of 4 to 8cm.  The lug of the lifting beam will fit many crane hooks but not all as some will have too narrow an opening on the hook.

The cross beams can be used on their own or mounted on the main beam.  The plates can have chains or narrow straps attached to give a lifting width of 3 to 6cm.

Quality and Price

These are well made metal items with a good finish.  They are relatively expensive however.


These are flexible lifting beams which can be posed in a number of ways with crane models to provide more interesting displays.  As long as the cost can be accepted, they are highly recommended.


This accessory was first shown at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2011 and was also made in yellow (RAL 1007).
