Essentially, a hook lift truck is a heavy-duty truck that has a hydraulic hook attached to the bed as a hoist system. It is mostly used to change out different types of containers on and off the truck. Petersen Industries covers all the bases with these trucks to satisfy transportation of waste, recycling, construction, forestry, mining, scrap, and demolition.
Advantages of Hook Lift Trucks
Right off the bat, utilizing one truck for multiple purposes is possible with a hook lift vehicle. When it comes time to clear out waste, forestry, etc. hook lift trucks can easily position containers when dropping them off, and maneuver them in and out of confined spaces. The exchange process (lifted or dropped, happens in almost no time at all, making these trucks useful while managing time.
Our hook lift trucks won’t interfere with existing operations, they change processes in minutes and come with 3-year structural and 1-year hydraulic warranty. We incorporate hook lift trucks into our business to make waste collection easier, reduce costs for businesses by reducing fleet size, and drivers having the ability to complete a pickup and drop-off with the cab of their truck.
