The Premium Sky Hooks with Mobile Cart Base are by far the most popular Sky Hooks we offer. Due to their versatility around the facility, full 360¬¨‚àû Sky Hook rotation and ability to reach into machines and over benches, these Sky Hooks are often found to be invaluable pieces of equipment. These Sky Hooks are very popular for CNC machines and other equipment where there is not room enough to extend legs beneath the load.
The mobile cart is designed to match common utility cart dimensions for easy integration and maneuverability into any facility. With 6" x 2" casters and a structural steel construction the cart provides a stable platform for transporting heavy parts. This Sky Hooks with Mobile Carts are unique in that they offer full 360¬¨‚àû rotation without legs extending forward beneath the load. This is accomplished through the use of built in load bearing support legs which can be extended for lifting or retracted for transport and storage. With the base support legs retracted, the Sky Hook can be transported though a standard 3' doorway.
As part of the Premium Sky Hook product line, these models incorporate our popular LoadLock clutch brake mechanism. The clutch brake allows for easy-to-operate, secure lifting of up to 500 lbs. Unlike the friction brake found in the Economy Line Sky Hooks, the Premium LoadLock clutch brake does not require the operation of a lever to control the load's rate of descent. With the LoadLock clutch brake, lowering the load is as easy as cranking the hand wheel in the counter clock-wise direction.
These mobile Sky Hook industrial lifting devices are design to require counterweight to the amount of 125% of the load being lifted or 630 lbs. for the maximum load capacity. While many of our customers choose to utilize weights they already have, we do offer the counterweight as well if desired. The counterweights are sold separately or in kit form, depending on the application requirements.
The Mobile Cart Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.
