Industrial Equipment

Kropf Industrial’s extensive experience in building boat handling equipment, floating structures, and floating fish farms has led naturally into many other industrial and custom applications as well.  Our ability to design, engineer, and draw in-house, along with our large and well equipped fabricating, machining, sandblasting, and painting facility enable us to bring your project to reality in a cost and time efficient manner.  If one of our standard industrial lifts does not suit your needs, we welcome your ideas and will work with you to design and build a machine that will provide a solution to your particular needs.

Haull.e Trailer Tugs

Conolift has developed a highly maneuverable and rugged trailer tug that can convert any yard or highway hydraulic boat trailer into a self-propelled work horse. It’s extremely compact design takes up far less space than your regular tow vehicle, enabling you to increase your indoor storage capacity without building new infrastructure. One man operation is easy with radio remote control steering, drive, and hitch functions.

The Haull.e can also be used to move your regular trailers around the yard and can move ball hitch, pintle ring, and fifth wheel trailers. For trailers with air brakes, Haull.e has a built in air compressor to enable releasing the brakes. A 24 HP Honda engine, coupled to independent proportionally controlled hydraulic wheel drives enable the Haull.e to be precisely controlled, even at creep speed, for use in tight quarters.

Features:

  • Towing capacity = 40,000 lb (18,181 kg)
  • Fifth wheel tongue load = 15,000 lb (6,818 kg)
  • Ball/pintle hitch capacity = 8,000 lb (3,636 kg)
  • Manual controls for backup (in event of radio control failure)
  • Hydraulic locking fifth wheel
  • Hydraulic lift on fifth wheel and pintle hitch
  • On board 12V air compressor and air tank
  • Air brake glad-hand and hose
  • Hydraulic stabilizer wheels for empty maneuvering
  • Movement alarm, flashing beacons, and e-stops on each fender

Industrial Straddle Carriers and Lifts

Kropf Industrial’s extensive experience in building boat handling equipment has led naturally into building rubber tired gantry cranes and hydraulic trailers for non-marine applications.  This has included straddle carriers for the bridge girder industry with two point lift and side-shift capabilities, self-propelled four-wheel steer movers for rail car plants and transformer manufacturers, and hydraulic trailers and self-propelled lifts for moving tanks over the highway or through uneven construction sites. We have also designed and built gantry cranes with custom lifting attachments to suit the exact requirements of our customers.

From our self-propelled trailer line, we have adapted our 90 degree steering and hydraulic frame lift to provide self-loading trailers that can handle the rugged landscape of a job site and provide a safe and economical way to move large pieces around.  We have also adapted our trailers to be belt or cable reel winders with independent lift for side to side leveling and variable winding control for the mining and cable industries.

Our industrial equipment is rugged and durable, with robust construction and carefully sourced components to provide years of uninterrupted use. Diesel engines with hydrostatic drives, heavy-ply mining tires, and advanced paint systems are only some of the standard features available to ensure extended service life. With optional radio remote control, 4-wheel drive, or 4-wheel steering, we can custom design, engineer, and build an economical solution for your lifting needs.

Container Movers

Kropf Industrial builds several models and capacities of container movers for the portable storage industry.  All the models are designed around a “level loading” concept to prevent damage to the contents which can happen if the container is tilted when loaded.  Kropf Industrial has several standard models to choose from, or we can design a trailer to suit your specific needs and container units.

CMU - 3TSP

  • 6000 lb load capacity
  • Air ride
  • Honda powered, electric start
  • Radio remote controlled
  • Self-propelled
  • Removable gooseneck
  • Hydraulically adjustable length for 12’ and 16’ containers

 

CMU – 5TRL

  • 10,000 lb load capacity
  • Tandem 7000 lb Torflex axles
  • Parallel arm system for level loading over the rear
  • Honda powered
  • Optional radio remote control
  • Optional hydraulic powered rear stabilizers

Custom Projects

Kropf Industrial has undertaken numerous projects in steel, stainless steel, and aluminum fabrication.  Kropf Industrial has design-build capacity in a wide range of industries and fields. Our engineers, CAD operators, CWB certified welders, and licensed machinists have undertaken numerous projects such as tire debeaders for the recycling industry, conveyor belt winding trailers and ball grinders for the mining industry, pull-testers for cable and sling manufacturers, spiral stairways, pallet turners, robotic seam welders, and many others.  Bring us your designs, drawings, or even just ideas, and we will help you turn them into reality.  Check out our photo gallery below for more interesting projects.
