Faced with limited resources, government fleet managers are tasked with practically unlimited demands for their equipment. Many have discovered that vehicle budgets go further with Ampliroll Hydraulic Hooklifts.

When paired with any number of roll-on/off truck bodies, a single Ampliroll-equipped chassis can do the job of many purpose-built vehicles. Fleet managers know that, with Ampliroll, they can easily swap out truck bodies for different jobs or changing seasons.

One example? A city might match an Ampliroll-outfitted chassis with a leaf-vacuum body in the fall. When snow falls, they could easily switch over to a salt-spreader hopper. Then, when spring arrives, they might change roll-on bodies again to an asphalt patch tanker

When compared to the purchase of different, single-use trucks to accomplish these jobs, Ampliroll hook loaders deliver amazing versatility—and exceptional value!

Check out the many advantages of Ampliroll

Compare Ampliroll Hooklifts to others for your city, county, state or highway department fleet. Or match them up against cable loaders. You’ll discover these Ampliroll advantages:

  • 5,000-psi hydraulic systems: Ampliroll Hooklifts feature high-pressure pumps for greater performance. Considered by many as the industry “gold standard,” they’re taking the place of less-efficient, low-pressure (i.e., 3,000-3,500 psi) alternatives. Another plus? High-pressure, 5,000-psi pumps are increasingly the choice of crane makers and hoist manufacturers, too!
  • Off-center loading: Roll-on truck body switchovers are quicker with hook loaders from Ampliroll. Why? There’s no need for drivers to spend extra minutes perfectly positioning their vehicles. When loading, an Ampliroll Hooklift can engage a body or container up to 30 degrees off-center. Requiring less precision, rookie drivers get up speed faster, too!
  • In-cab controls: Drivers operate Ampliroll Hooklift controls from the safety of their truck cabs. In contrast, cable loaders have truck-side-mounted levers. Drivers have to climb down from their trucks and work next to moving machinery. Extra steps, extra time and extra exposure to potential hazards—including icy or slick work surfaces during inclement weather!
  • Fleet manager peace-of-mind: Reducing operator risk with Ampliroll cab-mounted controls can help minimize your exposure to costly worker’s compensation claims. The easier pickups afforded by Ampliroll’s off-center loading also let you send rookie drivers on their way with greater confidence!
