The ideal cable hoist system for low overhead clearance applications.

The LowLift cable hoist system incorporates a revolutionary design for lower loading angles, a smaller footprint, and faster loading and unloading times than other roll-off hoists. The LowLift has a hinged tail that serves as a loading platform, enabling easier and closer alignment with the container, and a greatly reduced loading angle, making it an ideal roll-off truck solution for areas with low overhead clearance.

The LowLift does not have to be raised to load a container, and unloading is easily achieved without full extension of the lift cylinders. The much lower loading height and container angle eliminate problems due to overhead clearance. Generally, the LowLift hoist is only fully raised during the dumping process, and overhead obstructions are not an issue at landfills. The lower angle and height also reduce the chance that a container will jump the rails during loading.

Like its siblings, the DuaLift and KwikLift units, the LowLift's faster cycle times and other advantages are accomplished with a unique traveling carriage design. A single cable sheave is attached to the carriage, which travels the entire length of the hoist, powered by a seven-inch telescopic cylinder. Every foot of carriage travel develops two feet of cable movement, extending or retracting, causing rapid container movement. The result is increased power and speed throughout the operation of the hoist. The 30-second loading and unloading times are about one-half that of traditional roll-off hoists.

Cycling the carriage back and forth with the hoist raised results in rapid container movement to help shake loose stubborn or frozen loads, a feature not found on other roll-off hoists.

The traveling carriage of the LowLift can also power containers rearward. This feature has two significant benefits. With the LowLift hoist in the horizontal position, the carriage can push a container onto a dock or trailer, for example, enabling fast loading of pup trailers. Using pup trailers means more productive trips to the landfill while reducing capital requirements. At the disposal site, the heavy container is powered rearward before raising the LowLift hoist. This feature also eliminates a hauler's need for 75,000-pound lift cylinders.
