    By looking at your website I get some updated information about the many different types of portable cranes are now available in the market and consequently the several applications some of them I never thought before now. I wonder how it is possible to undertake a reliable market study in order to go for some standard products, which will then be saleable at a fair price compared to custom made cranes that will cost more. I also wonder about how to decide for the many accessories available on the market because in the end is all comes down to financial benefits even if I do realize that there are many ergonomic advantages or maybe even laws that require the use of portable hoists. There is also a question about safety that applies to the way the cranes are operated. Good and reliable instructions especially related to overweight that can be the cause of serious accident. Finally there is the issue of warranty, which is not so easy to solve. OK for the main product itself it is not a big deal, but what about all the accessories you buy from other suppliers?
