?End trucks are the wheels-on-rails section of a crane bridge. End trucks support lifts or manipulators over a work area for material handling purpose. They can be motorized or manual operated. They may be placed on top of the working areas or under the loading zones. End tracks are usually rated by the captivity (tons) and bridge span (ft or m).
Additional features of an end truck may include an end truck hoist and enclosed gear units. An end truck hoist is a pulling or a lifting device that is used to lift or move a load. Enclosed gear units are usually for smoother operation, noise reduction purposes.
