    How much did the hooklift system cost ?

    A system that size in CND funds is pushing 20 grand without any boxes.

    Hard to tell is that a single or dual pivot system ?

    Thanks. No, I didn't build I just put it all together and I added a few things. It is a stellar industries hook lift.

    GR. You are right usually it would cost you about 18K USA to get one of these lifts. So when I saw this truck for 14K I had to buy it. It needed some work but it's a 97 with a powerstroke. It has a power Jib.

    Thanks Brenden

    Depends in what container I have on at the time but between 4-6k legally :rolleyes:

    I think it's hard to make out in the pic but it also has a set of airbags. I have hauled much more.

    I will try to get a few pictures with my flat bed and my skid in the back when I get get a chance.

    Thanks

    The lift weighs 1640 pounds. The containers weigh from 1800-3600 pounds.
