EBI’s proven planetary gearbox, the GB82, has been used in service for many years within the EBI fleet. Long lasting, dependable, and easy to maintain, the GB82 is the perfect solution for small to mid-sized liftboat designs.

Highlights:

  • Planetary Reduction system
  • 82:1 ABS approved to 178,500 lb jacking force.
  • 100% designed and fabricated by EBI.
  • Over 600 units in service.
  • Outfitted on multiple liftboats including seven 320′ ABS Class vessels.
  • Used in the Panama Canal.

The GB380 provides a mid range planetary gearbox option. It is similar in design and concept to the GB450, providing an economical option for lighter load applications.

Highlights:

  • Electric over Hydraulic System
  • Zollern planetary gear set
  • Bosch Rexroth/Hagglünds CA50 motor and braking
  • 380,000 lbs of load / pinion tooth
  • Severe Storm Capacity (SSC) – 750,000

EBI’s new world class liftboat jacking system, the GB450, sets standards like no other. This gearbox is designed to handle severe storm conditions, heavier loads, and load faster on location.

Highlights:
