Premium Cherry Picker Sky Hooks

Breaking the mold of the all too well know cherry pickers, the Premium Sky Hook Cherry Picker Sky Hooks offer a clean, refined method of safely lifting and transporting up to 500 lbs. They’re perfect for general material handling in production & assembly areas, manufacturing, shipping and receiving, as well as maintenance and repair facilities.

The Cherry Picker Bases utilize 6” x 2” casters that allow for easy rolling on most hard surfaces. 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 base can also be easily disassembled for compact storage or ease of transport.

As part of the Premium Sky Hook product line, these models incorporate our popular LoadLock clutch brake mechanism. The clutch brake allows for easy-to-operate, secure lifting of up to 500 lbs. Unlike the friction brake found in the Economy Line Sky Hooks, the Premium LoadLock clutch brake does not require the operation of a lever to control the load’s rate of descent. With the LoadLock clutch brake, lowering the load is as easy as cranking the hand wheel in the counter clock-wise direction.

The Cherry Picker Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.

Roller Chain vs. Cable

All Sky Hook models are offered in both roller chain and cable configurations. Each configuration has unique benefits which may make all the difference depending on the lifting application. From the first Sky Hooks built in 1969, roller chain has been the primary lifting tether for these one of a kind lifting devices. Even though cable is definitely more of an industry standard for lifting, roller chain has benefits that have to be considered before making the determination as to which is best suited for your application.

Roller chain offers a consistent rate of travel as the chain passes over a set sprocket size and is stored in the vertical tube of the Sky Hook. Cable on the other hand stacks up on a spool, slightly increasing the amount of force required to lift the load as more of the cable is reeled in. However cable is typically quicker and easier to inspect. Many larger corporations require cable for all internal lifting devices.

Both the roller chain and cable are load rated to meet applicable safety standards. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to end up with a lifting device that will have a smooth and seamless operation.
