The Mobile Cart Sky Hooks are by far the most popular Sky Hooks we offer. Due to their versatility around the facility, full 360° Sky Hook rotation and ability to reach into machines and over benches, these Sky Hooks are often found to be invaluable pieces of equipment. These Sky Hooks are very popular for CNC machines and other equipment where there is not room enough to extend legs beneath the load. As part of the Economy Sky Hook product line, these models incorporate our economical, lever operated friction braking mechanism. The friction brake allows for safe, efficient operation, giving the operator the ability to position the load with precision.
The mobile cart is designed to match common utility cart dimensions for easy integration and maneuverability into any facility. With 6” x 2” casters and a structural steel construction the cart provides a stable platform for transporting heavy parts. This Sky Hooks with Mobile Carts are unique in that they offer full 360° rotation without legs extending forward beneath the load. This is accomplished through the use of built in load bearing support legs which can be extended for lifting or retracted for transport and storage. With the base support legs retracted, the Sky Hook can be transported though a standard 3’ doorway.
These mobile Sky Hook industrial lifting devices are designed to require counterweight to the amount of 125% of the load being lifted or 630 lbs. for the maximum load capacity. While many of our customers choose to utilize weights they already have, we do offer the counterweight as well if desired. The counterweights are sold separately or in kit form, depending on the application requirements.
The Economy Mobile Cart Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations. Be sure to also check out the Premium Sky Hook Product Line which incorporates our LoadLock clutch brake for a more simplified, easy-to-use brake operation.
