Shannahan Crane & Hoist

Walker Bi-Polar Series Lifting Magnets

Bi-Polar magnets lift directly from the center of the load, so no aisle room is required to sling or maneuver a hook. Loads can be stacked as high as the crane allows.

The 271 series has a special design that concentrates the magnetic field, preventing the attraction of adjacent material and making it especially suitable for handling bundles of pipe, tubing, rebar, and bar stock. These magnets are commonly used by steel mills, coil and pipe distributors, and other users of applicable steel products.


This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.





The 272 series has a very wide range of applications in all areas of the steel industry, from the mill to foundry through distribution to the end-user. The magnets are typically used in the production and handling of plate, structural shapes, castings, forgings, coiled strips, individual and bundled lengths of pipe, tubing, rebar, and bar stock. Both models can be supplied with special pole shoes for specific applications.

Bi-Polar lift magnets can be used individually or in multiples with various types of suspension systems. We engineer and supply the complete system, including power supply, controls, battery backup unit and spreader beams.
