Revolutionizing Recycling: Stellar Exhibits NXT52 Hooklift at ISRI 2024 in Las Vegas


Stellar Industries, a 100% employee-owned and -operated manufacturer of high-quality mechanic trucks, cranes, tire service trucks, hooklifts, trailers and service truck and van accessories, is proud to announce its participation in ISRI 2024, the world’s largest event for the recycled materials industry, taking place from April 15 to 18, 2024, at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

ISRI 2024 brings together industry leaders, experts and innovators from around the world to discuss the latest trends, technologies and challenges in the recycling sector. As a key player in this dynamic industry, Stellar is excited to showcase its groundbreaking products and solutions at booth #843.

Among the highlights of Stellar’s exhibit is the NXT52 Hooklift, a game-changing innovation designed to meet the evolving needs of material handling in the scrap and recycling industry. The Stellar® NXT52 Hooklift combines high capacity with an industry-leading below-grade hook bar approach, offering unparalleled efficiency and performance. With a best-in-class 10.5″ lost load height and a powerful 52,000-lb capacity, the NXT52 Hooklift is capable of handling 16′ – 22′ bodies for 174″ – 214″ CT chassis. Its bolt-on body lock system provides maximum compatibility and flexibility, making it the ideal choice for a wide range of applications.

Furthermore, Stellar is proud to announce a new, innovative control system for its hooklifts, an electronic joystick control. The new controller will feature a single joystick to control all functions of the hooklift, while prioritizing ergonomics for ease of use. The controller will be mounted to an adjustable base so it can be tailored for the comfort of each operator. This option will be available on the NXT52, at this time, with plans to roll out on additional large Stellar Hooklifts in the future. 

“We are thrilled to be part of ISRI and to have the opportunity to showcase our latest innovations,” said Chad Rea, Director of Sales Demountables at Stellar. “The scrap and recycling industry is constantly evolving, and our goal is to provide our customers with cutting-edge solutions that address their unique challenges. The NXT52 Hooklift exemplifies our commitment to innovation, efficiency and reliability.”

Attendees of ISRI 2024 are encouraged to visit booth #843 to learn more about the NXT52 Hooklift and other innovative solutions from Stellar. The Stellar team will be on hand to provide demonstrations, answer questions and discuss how their products can help improve operational efficiency and productivity.
