Design and Fabrication

Mussell Crane Mfg.'s Machine Shop has the equipment needed to serve the most demanding requirements for precision, speed and quality. In our 8,500 ft2 machine shop, we have more than eleven major machine tools that routinely handle parts up to 32.28 inches in diameter and as small as 3/8 inch.

Our experienced technicians provide computer-aided design, 3-axis CNC milling & tooling (traditional milling & tooling), fabrication, welding, saw cutting & cylindrical grinding.

We also supply quality replacement & repair parts, custom tools, jigs & fixtures, and prototype work. We cut aluminum, brass, plastic, and even more difficult to machine materials like stainless steel, tool steel, copper, cast iron, and titanium with extreme precision machining.

Crane Wheels & Wheel Components

Mussell Crane offers the most advanced & versatile wheels for a variety of industrial applications. Our special ductile alloy cast wheels are superior to other wheels in that our design allows for larger load capacity, are better impact resistant, have better surface definition, and last longer.

The larger axle diameters provide greater load transfer and are suited for both tube style and standard channel constructed end trucks. Our heavy-duty wheel designs feature precision CNC machined treads, bores, gears and flanges. All “C Class” wheels are assembled with double sealed ball bearings (5,000 hr. rated) designed to achieve higher capacities & smoother running qualities. They are therefore especially appropriate for applications with high demands for quieter running, minimum vibration, and lower maintenance end trucks. The combination of low cost, availability & versatility makes our line of single & double flange wheels and accessories #1.
