Hook lift (hook grab system) is a system for loading and unloading handling of demountable trucks bodies installed on truck chassis. It is one of the three common types of multilifts (besides the hook lift, there are also frame and cable system lifts).
Hook lift is an L-shaped metal structure with a hook grab at one end; the other end connects to the frame of the truck through the axial hinge. This construction, which is driven by a hydraulic system, allows removing and installing different types of bodies both on the platform of the chassis itself and on the platform of a connected trailer. Moreover, constructive features of the hook lift provide for the possibility of dump unloading from the body installed on it.
The main advantage of any multilift is its versatility. The same vehicle equipped with such a system of easy body change (different platforms, tanks, skips, containers, etc.) can be used for transportation of different types of goods, which leads to direct savings on buying and renting additional equipment. This is the reason for these trucks to be the most widely used ones in all areas of industry, agriculture, public utilities, and construction.
