Stellar NXT18 Hooklift


Featuring next-level design and a best-in-class 7.5″ lost load height, the powerful 18,000-lb-capacity Stellar® NXT18 Hooklift handles 8′ – 14′ bodies for 108″ – 120″ CA chassis. For maximum compatibility and flexibility, the bolt-on body lock system provides universal adjustment for either inside or outside locks.


NXT18 Hooklift Benefits

  • Manual adjustable hook height: Set the hook height to match the lift bar height of a fleet of containers.
  • Compact secondary design: A lost load height of 7.5″ when combined with the dump section creates a double pivot, allowing a lower below-grade hook bar approach. Accommodates down to 4″ subframe heights.
  • Wear pad design: Integrated replaceable wear pads for easier serviceability.
  • Lift cylinders: The integrated soft-stop feature brings the body to rest gently on the body saddles, and the speed enhancement system for cylinder extension cuts cycle time by up to 30%.
  • Electronic controls: Programmable logic provides precision hook deployment, and the radio remote control transmitter delivers easy, handheld operation control.
  • Hydraulic reservoir: The universal mounting bracket lets you place the 8-gallon reservoir where you want it: top mount at the bulkhead or along the chassis frame, or on either side of the unit.
