A patented high-lift hydraulic tailgate allows up to a 6-ft. clearance when dumping. The body is available in either elliptical or square styles.
An exclusive sloped front design accommodates the hydraulic cabinet, reservoir and hoist, virtually eliminating the doghouse. All hydraulics are housed in this aluminum cabinet for easy access and protection.
Vforce Power Lifter
The Vforce Power Lifter from Littlestar Products turns your pickup into a heavy cargo hauler in less than five minutes. It simply attaches to your Class IV trailer hitch.
The unit uses a hydraulic system powered by the truck’s electrical system. It can handle up to 1,000 lbs. Fully enclosed hydraulics eliminate hoses, fittings and pinch points commonly found on hydraulic lift systems.
A hand-held remote allows the operator to keep a safe distance from the load. Installation and removal is a one-man operation and requires no tools. You can leave the Vforce on the truck without interfering with normal truck operations. The lifting arm is designed to store and rest securely out of the way atop the truck bed side rail. You can also tow trailers with the Vforce attached.
Raven under-hood generator
Raven Technology has developed an under-hood mobile power system that produces 120-volt, pure sine, 60-Hz AC power regardless of engine speed. The Blackbird provides a full 5 kW while allowing the vehicle prime mover to stay dedicated to its primary task. It eliminates the need for an additional engine to power a generator.
There are no hydraulic fluids, hoses or valves, as well as no inverters or converters. The Blackbird is driven with a clutched belt drive.
Raven provides a complete installation package along with the generator. Popular platforms are supported, including the Ford 6.0L and 7.3L Powerstroke and 5.4L Triton V8, Caterpillar 3126 and International DT466M/DT530/DT570. Kits for the Chevy Vortec 5.3L and Duramax diesel engines will be available soon. PTO drive and 110/220-volt AC models are also under development.
Stellar 6628 crane
Stellar Industries introduces the 6628 telescopic crane, which offers 28 ft. of hydraulic reach with a maximum lifting capacity of 6,000 lbs. at 6 ft. The crane has a 38,000-ft.-lb. capacity. It can lift 1,350 lbs. at the full 28-ft. reach from the centerline of the crane. Winch speed is rated at 60 fpm.
The crane utilizes a hexboom design, which provides a stronger cross section than square tubing. This design eliminates boom flex and side-to-side movement.
Heil Scissor Hoist
The 1614 Scissor Hoist from Heil Environmental lifts dump bodies on vehicles with a GVWR of 20,000 lbs. and up. The hoist uses a 6-in. cylinder with a 14-in. stroke and a body/payload capacity of more than 25 tons.
The 1614 Scissor hoist is fabricated of high-tensile steel for maximum strength without unnecessary weight. Grease fittings at all pivot points and simplified installation make maintenance easier and increase the hoist's useful life. High-pressure hydraulics give an extra boost to the cylinder's lifting capacity. In addition, operators have complete positive control at all times through the hoist's power-up and power-down double action, preventing kick-back.
