Stellar Industries, Inc. is introducing the Slider65 Hooklift loader. The
Slider65 is a sliding jib style hooklift with a maximum lifting capacity of 65,000 pounds. The
sliding jib allows the Slider65 to accommodate container bodies varying in length from
16-foot to 22-foot while still attaining the maximum dump angle of
50° . It can also
accommodate flatbeds up to 24-foot in length. The Slider65 is replacing the previous
190-24-50 and 190-24-60 Slider models.
The Slider65 features an adjustable hook height of either 54 inches or 61.75 inches. This
will allow users who may have previously operated a smaller hooklift, recently acquired
bodies with different hook rod heights, or have operated a competitive hooklift, the
opportunity to upgrade their system without having the expense of converting the skids
on the bodies. Another new feature of the Slider65 is the use of the hexagonal jib. Its
geometric shape adds strength, reduces flexing and makes it easier to replace wear
pads. The weight of the Slider65 has been reduced by over 1600 pounds, allowing for a
Other standard features of the Slider65 include stainless steel pins, patented
dump/load interlock system, and DuPont® Imron® 5000 paint, which are also found on
all other Stellar hooklift models.
The development of the Slider 65 allows us to better compete in markets that
have previously seen little penetration, says Glenn Rasmus, Hooklift Sales and
Product Manager for Stellar Industries. More importantly, it allows us to offer a
more competitively priced, high-capacity hooklift, with innovative features that
will open eyes in the marketplace.
The Slider65 will be on display at the upcoming Waste Expo tradeshow in
Atlanta, Georgia May 8-10, 2007.
