Featuring Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklifts as their #1 seller

Ampliroll-brand hydraulic hook loaders are a leading choice among the contractors, highway departments, landscapers, municipalities, recyclers, scrappers and others that rely on Fort Fabrication.

While cable-loading systems for roll-on/roll-off trucks bodies and containers have their adherents, many new as well as current users are electing to go with hook loaders. Why? Consider the advantages that Ampliroll Hooklifts bring to any operation:

  • Less maintenance: While cable loaders are slightly less expensive at the outset than comparable hook loaders, maintenance costs over time are much lower for Ampliroll Hooklifts. There are no cables that have to be inspected regularly to preclude safety issues to operators.
  • More loads per shift: Ampliroll Hooklifts can load (and unload) in a fraction of the time as cable hoists. Drivers do not need to get out and extend, attach or retrieve cables. Many operators report hauling more loads per shift thanks to the efficiency of hook loaders.
  • Operator preference: Drivers prefer hook loaders over cable hoists because, in most cases, they don’t have to exit the vehicle to complete a load/unload cycle. Ampliroll Hooklift controls are operated from the comfort of the cab—not outside in the heat, cold or rain.
  • Improved safety/reduced liability: With cab-mounted Ampliroll Hooklift controls, drivers are well shielded and far removed from moving machinery. What’s more, they have less need to walk on icy, muddy or otherwise slick surfaces for hookups.
  • Faster approaches: Drivers of Ampliroll Hooklifts can engage containers up to 60° off-center. Not so with cable hoists. The stingers of the rail must be in almost perfect alignment with the front wheels of the container, which can be a challenge for even experienced drivers.
