The NXT40 telescopic hooklift from Stellar Industries, Garner, Iowa, is the latest telescopic hooklift in the company’s NXT™ Series and features a Z-channel base design and a universal body latching system. The U.S.-made, 40,000-lb.-capacity hoist is built for tandem axle chassis. The unit has a 54-in. or 61.75-in. hook height and rectangular-style secondary jib. With approximately a 10.5-in. lost load height, the company offers a low profile, providing a lower vertical center of gravity and the ability to accommodate down to 6-in. subframe heights.
The universal body latching system features outside locks that can be adjusted by loosening the clamp bolts, repositioning and tightening back down. The unit also has a universal hydraulic reservoir. The reservoir can be mounted in various positions on the unit to avoid any workaround needs if there are chassis items that could interfere with the reservoir mounting, the company says.
