The Premium Sky Hooks with Mobile Cart Base are by far the most popular portable hoists we offer. Due to their versatility around the facility, full 360° rotation, and ability to reach into machines and over benches, Sky Hook portable jib cranes are invaluable pieces of equipment. These small cranes are very popular for CNC machines and other equipment where there is not room enough to extend legs beneath the load.
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. Sky Hook portable cranes 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, this versatile portable lifting crane can be transported though a standard 3’ doorway.
As part of the Premium Sky Hook product line, our portable lifting crane models incorporate the popular LoadLock clutch brake mechanism, allowing 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.
Sky Hook mobile cranes 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 customers choose to utilize weights they already have Sky Hook offers counterweights sold separately or in kit form, depending on the application requirements.
Mobile Cart Sky Hooks lifting cranes are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.
