Why to Choose a Hooklift Truck Body System

Hooklift truck bodies are a crucial tool for use in a variety of industries. These detachable body systems mount on your truck chassis and feature a hydraulically operated hooklift arm that actually hooks and lifts the body on the chassis, which is where they get their name from.

These hooklift truck body systems are popular in a variety of industries ranging from waste removal and landscaping to mining because of the system’s versatility. The hooklift hoist can haul numerous types of truck bodies or containers. This allows one truck to perform the duties that were once reserved for a whole fleet of vehicles all supported by the heavy-duty hydraulic hoist.
