Compact in design, the Economy Reverse Cherry Picker Sky Hooks allow easy access into machinery to remove or reposition heavy or awkward items that need to be changed, modified or stored after use. These Sky Hooks are particularly popular for CNC machines and other equipment where there is not room enough to extend legs beneath the load. With a low profile counterweight tray and ergonomic push handle, the operator will enjoy the ease of access for rigging and transport the load with ease. 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.
These mobile Sky Hook industrial lifting devices are design 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 for, depending on the application requirements. With a base width of 34”, the Sky Hook can be transported though a standard 3’ doorway with the load still hanging from the hook.
The Economy Reverse Cherry Picker 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.
