Stellar introduces Slider20-S Sliding Jib Hooklift
Iowa-based Stellar Industries' new Slider20-S Hooklift is a 20,000-pound capacity sliding-jib hooklift that can handle container variations of 10’ to 14’ and up to 16’ flatbeds. It has a maximum dump angle of 72-degrees.
Hook height options for the Slider20-S include a fixed 35.63”, a fixed 54”, or a hydraulically adjustable 35.63” to 54” hook height. Adjusting the hook height to accommodate varying container heights can be done in less than 7 seconds without ever leaving the cab. The Slider20-S is compatible with a multitude of bodies and containers, including those used on competitive brand hooklifts, making this a very attractive model for a customer operating a variety of body lengths and hook heights.
Other standard features of the Slider20-S include hexagonal boom design for added strength and durability, zinc plated pins to prevent corrosion, bushings and grease zerks at all pivot points, and a secure hose track for the hydraulic adjustable jib. This hooklift features easily replaceable wear pads, two-part polyurethane paint and a new, efficient mounting kit that will save installation time by using slotted brackets already painted and welded onto the hooklift base.
“The Slider20-S really bridges the gap between lower capacity hooklifts that handle the 10’ to 14’ container range and the need to increase the lifting and dumping capacity,” says Glenn Rasmus, Stellar Industries sales and product manager for demountables. “In addition, the hydraulic adjustable hook height is changed in 7 seconds without leaving the cab. This is a feature customers are raving about! Stellar continues to provide solutions to customer’s problems with resounding success, leading the way as a hooklift innovator.”
Rasmus concludes, “With over 55 different models of hooklifts available, which includes standard double pivot shuttles, single pivot, and sliding jib versions, Stellar Industries can cover your every need.”
