No fleet manager can guarantee a driver’s safety but it’s wise to minimize risk in every way possible. Your employees will thank you, you’ll improve your operation’s efficiency, and you’ll reduce your exposure to costly worker’s compensation claims.

These are all good reasons to go with Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklifts instead of cable loader alternatives when outfitting a fleet for roll-off containers or interchangeable truck bodies.

Go ahead and compare the two types of systems. You’ll see why Ampliroll comes out on top.


Safety-wise, what can go wrong with a cable hoist? Plenty!

With a cable loader, the driver has to step down from the cab and pull out the heavy cable. After dragging it to a roll-off, they have to bend down to hook it up.

Then—outdoors and at truck-side—they must operate the controls before climbing back into the cab. Of course, drivers often have to repeat this sequence five or eight or 10 times a day.

Every step of the operation presents a chance for a slip, strain, sprain or fall. What’s more, working in bad weather on icy, muddy or rain-slick surfaces increases the odds of an operator injury. So does standing next to moving machinery as they winch aboard the detachable.


Why hook loaders like Ampliroll offer a smarter choice.

In contrast, consider the ease and security offered by hooklifts like Ampliroll. Unlike cable systems, they feature cab-mounted controls.

When a worker picks up or drops off a container with a hook hoist, they never have to leave the driver’s seat. No climbing in and out of the truck. No manhandling unwieldy, greasy cables. No traversing slippery ground. And no standing next to moving machinery.



Safety: Tipping the scales to a hook system like Ampliroll.

The bottom line? For any fleet manager concerned with the safety of their drivers, the efficiency of their operation and their exposure to worker’s compensation claims, the advantage lies with hook hoists like Ampliroll.
