Stellar NXT Series Telescopic Hooklifts

May 4, 2022

Stellar NXT Series telescopic hooklifts are lightweight units capable of loading, unloading, and dumping various truck bodies.

The NXT18 is the first in the series and features a Z-channel base design and a universal body latching system. Completely manufactured in the U.S., the NXT18 is an 18,000-pound-capacity hoist, built for a Class 4 through 7 chassis. The unit has a 35.63/54-inch hook height and rectangular style secondary jib. With approximately a 7.5-inch lost load height, it offers the lowest profile in the industry, Stellar says, providing a lower vertical center of gravity and the ability to accommodate down to 4-inch sub-frame heights.

The universal body latching system is completely flexible with inside and outside locks that can be moved by unbolting, repositioning, and bolting back down. This allows the user to position the body locks in specific locations to accommodate body locks that may not be in the correct spot. The versatility of this system eliminates the need to cut locks off, re-weld, or repaint.
