    Nice. Spreader bars are a must for lifting awkward, over length or difficult to balance loads safely

    Technically this is actually a lifting beam, but everyone seems to call them spreader bars. They do spread the load lifting points.

    A real spreader bar simply spreads a long length of chain with a length adjustable beam in beam arrangement.

    However, a lifting beam has the advantage of taking up less vertical space under the crane jib.
