first choice in hooklift systemsMeeting the needs of roll-off applications

Fleet owners and individual operators know the advantages that Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklifts bring to many trucking operations.

When working with multiple roll-on truck bodies, a single hook-lift equipped cab-and-chassis can do the work of many dedicated, single-use rigs at a fraction of the price.

Municipalities, for example, can easily roll-on and roll-off dumpsters, flatbeds, salt spreaders and other truck bodies depending on the season or application with Ampliroll Hooklift Systems.

Ampliroll Hydraulic HookliftsWhile cable hoists with truck-mounted winches and cables can do much the same, hook loaders do it better. With an Ampliroll-brand hooklift system, you can:

 – Load in a fraction of the time. Drivers of Ampliroll-equipped rigs don’t need to get out and attach or retrieve cables. That often means hauling more loads per shift!

 – Improve operator safety. Ampliroll hook loader operators have less need to walk on icy, muddy or otherwise slick surfaces for hookups.

–  Reduce owner liability. Unlike cable hoists with outside controls, Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklifts are operated from controls inside the cab and away from moving machinery.

–  Enable off-center approaches. Forget the time-consuming perfect alignments needed with a cable loader. Ampliroll Hooklifts can engage a container up to 60° off-center.
