Compact in design, the Premium 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.
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.
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 Reverse Cherry Picker Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.
