Featuring Ampliroll-brand Hydraulic Hooklifts

Among many hook loader competitors, Hudson River Truck & Trailer has selected hooklifts from an industry leader—Ampliroll.

Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklifts bring a lot to any contractor, municipality, recycler, scrapper, waste hauler or other operation. Among their advantages:

  • Selection: Ampliroll meets the needs of users with hydraulic hooklifts in capacities ranging from 13,000 lbs. to 65,000 lbs.
  • Safety: Workers operate Ampliroll’s controls in the cab from the safety of their driver’s seat. They aren’t exposed to moving machinery or slippery work surfaces as cable loader operators are with their truck side-mounted levers. Of course, the cab-operated controls on Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklift Systems help reduce fleet operator exposure to costly worker’s compensation claims, too.
  • Pressurization: Ampliroll Hooklifts feature high-pressure, 5,000 psi pumps. Because they offer greater performance, they’re the system preferred by 75% of hook loader makers in America and around the world. No wonder that less-efficient, low-pressure (i.e., 3,000-3,500 psi) alternatives are becoming harder to find on hooklift systems.
  • Precision: Hook loaders from Ampliroll don’t rely on the shims or wear pads you might find on hooklifts offered by others. Ampliroll eliminates the need for extraneous parts or “make-do” components. How? By using the most up-to-date production processes including robotic welding and laser cutting.
  • Experience: Ampliroll users take the road with the confidence of knowing they’ve selected a hook loader with an unsurpassed reputation for reliability and excellence in design. In fact, no one’s expertise runs deeper than Marrel. The company invented the dual-pivot hydraulic hook loader in 1969 and introduced the concept to the U.S. in 1980 with Ampliroll®-branded products.


Meeting the needs of customers since 1988

Focused on service, Hudson River Truck & Trailer takes pride in the fact that nearly 80% of its new customers are word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied clients.

Contractors, craftsmen, landscapers, municipalities, solid waste haulers and others are invited to visit the company’s new showroom, parts department and shop area. The company welcomes auto racing buffs, snowmobile enthusiasts and weekend warriors, too!
