All new and soon to become one of our most popular Sky Hooks, the Sky Hook with Mobile Cart Base and Articulating Arm is the most versatile tool you could have in your facility. With a 360° range of motion complimented by an extended 36” total reach and articulating arm maneuverability, you can pick a load from inside a machine or over a bench then set it down at any location on the top pan of the cart.
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.
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.
These mobile Sky Hook industrial lifting devices are design to require counterweight to the amount of 250% of the load being lifted or 625 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 Premium Mobile Cart Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.
