20,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
 20,000 lb. 11 – 21.5′ 35.63 – 61.75″
Stellar’s line-up of 20,000-pound capacity hooklift loaders offer the greatest selection of any hooklift manufacturer. With many different lengths available, the 20,000-pound Stellar hooklifts cover from 102″ to 200″ cab-to-axle lengths for single rear axle truck chassis.

With the broadest array of sizes, the Stellar 20,000-pound models have proven their use in a wide variety of uses. From roofers to recyclers, landscapers to lumber yards, the versatile Stellar 20,000-pound models can be found in most any application in locations around the world.

24,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
 24,000 lb. 10 – 12.5′ 54″
Stellar designed this special hooklift from the ground-up for the municipality or contractor who needed a short, maneuverable single axle truck with a high payload capacity. We determined through surveys of our distributors and end users that the most common body on this truck would be a dump body.

Designed for a truck with a CA of 84″, this model is proving its worth all across the country in tough day-in, day-out use. The 96-10-24 has since proved it is as equally suited for a salt spreader, vacuum tanker, asphalt patcher, or one of many other limited use applications.

32,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
 32,000 lbs 12 – 18.5′ 61.75″
Based on our successful 40,000 and 52,000-pound capacity models, the 32,000-pound series is the right choice for those that are hauling a consistent weight or aiming for lighter loads.

The 32,000-pound capacity Stellar hydraulic hooklift loaders are designed for use with a heavy single rear axle or light tandem axle truck chassis. All Stellar 32,000-pound capacity hooklift loaders feature the taller 61.75-inch tall hook height; a feature common to all heavier capacity Stellar hooklift loaders.

The 108-14-32 is specially designed for municipal use with a short body. For a heavy single rear axle truck, the 108-14-32 offers maximum loading capacity with a short, highly maneuverable turning radius.

34,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
 34,000 lb. 15 – 17.5′ 54″
With a 34,000-pound capacity and a 54″ hook height, this model of hooklift was designed to facilitate hooklift owners who need a greater load capacity. Even with increased capacity this hooklift does not require changing the hook height on existing containers.

The 54″ hook height can accommodate containers used by 20,000-pound Stellar hooklifts. The 138-18-34 can also accommodate most competitive hooklift latches. (Some minor modifications may be necessary. Contact the Stellar factory to see which latches will be applicable).

40,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
 40,000 lb. 12 – 21.5′ 61.75″
The 40,000-pound capacity Stellar Shuttle hydraulic hooklift loader is one of our most popular sizes for use in the construction industry. The shorter 108-14-40 is popular when teamed with a 13-foot dump body for general purpose hauling.

The 138-18-40 is ideal for use with 2,500-gallon water tank, vacuum tanker, or 16-foot dump body. The longer 174-20-40 and 190-22-40 models are solid values for hauling larger debris boxes or transporting heavy construction equipment, such as self-contained pavers, rollers, etc.

52,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
 52,000 lb. 15 – 21.5′ 61.75″
The 52,000-pound Stellar Shuttle hydraulic hooklift loaders are the “Bread & Butter” models for our heavy hauling customers. With our unique single dump cylinder design, the Stellar 52,000-pound models can provide up to a ton more net payload than most competitive hooklift and roll-off units of equal rated capacity. The Stellar low flow/high pressure hydraulic system allows for weight savings in the hydraulic system as well by requiring a smaller hydraulic than competitive models

The Stellar 52,000-pound hooklift loaders have proven themselves in some of the roughest imaginable applications, including demolition debris hauling, self-contained compactor retrieval, off-and on-road construction, agriculture, and logging.

65,000 Shuttle Hooklift

 Capacity Body Length Hook Height 
65,000 lb. 15 – 22.5′ 61.75″
Where heavy hauling is required, look to the 65,000-pound Stellar Shuttle hooklift for the solution. These models are designed to handle the extremely heavy loads of both on and off-road hauling. The 65,000-pound Stellar Shuttles feature dual 7-inch bore lift/dump cylinders to keep the overall height and total weight as low as possible. Dual rear rollers with integral rear body tie-downs are standard.

The Stellar 65,000-pound hooklift loaders are available in both on-road and extra heavy-duty off-road versions. Off-road versions feature heavy double plate construction throughout. The rear portions of the dump section and base are constructed of 3″ thick solid steel plate. These massive hook loader machines are designed for heavy work in foundries, steel mills, and scrap yards.
