Spotlight On Amick Equipment: Six decades in the business, this distributor knows a good hook loader.

You don’t thrive in the competitive street and sanitation business since 1959 without learning a thing or two about quality and value. That’s why Amick Equipment of Lexington, South Carolina has connected with Ampliroll-brand hooklifts. On their website, they write:

“Pulling cans of debris, sludge or concrete? You need a hoist that has the power and strength to do it day in and day out! Ampliroll hooklifts have you covered!”

Now in its 60th year of operation, the distributor grew steadily, expanded into North Carolina and is today one of the largest distributors for refuse collection equipment in the country.

Municipalities, scrap metal recyclers, contractors and others in need of equipment can rely on Amick for rear loaders, front loaders, side loaders, grapple loaders, and street sweepers. They offer a selection of work-ready trucks. From small dump beds to cart lifters and camera systems, users also can count on the distributor for specialty bodies and accessories.

Of course, roll-offs and hook loaders are an important part of Amick’s product selection. They recognize the value of both types of container hoist systems.

“No commercial fleet can be complete without a roll-off or hooklift truck. Both are designed to lift and haul the heaviest of loads in both a residential and commercial application.”

Amick also acknowledges a key benefit of Ampliroll hook loaders over cable pullers.

“The Ampliroll uses the hooklift system as a means of lifting, sliding and unloading the container. The advantage of the hooklift is the driver doesn’t need to exit the vehicle when loading and unloading.”

The fact that an Ampliroll hook loader driver can operate from the comfort — and safety — of their cab also points to other hydraulic hooklift plusses. These include faster loading and reduced risk of injury. Operators are not exposed to moving machinery when operating controls or hooking up heavy cables on snowy, muddy, rain-slick or otherwise slippery surfaces.
