A truck for every job

The Stellar Slider Series Hook lift is a body handling system. It is mounted on a chassis capable of loading, unloading, and dumping various type of bodies. It works with a wide range of lengths with the use of a hexagonal sliding jib.

Now with hydraulic adjustable hook heights, the Stellar Slider Series will handle 35.63″ (905 mm) to 61.75″ (1568mm) hook height bodies. It allow you to accommodate capacities up to 65,000 pounds (15,422kg).

The Stellar Slider series hooklift is known for its versatile design and ease of operation. All models of the Stellar Slider, feature permanently lubricated, and greaseable bushings used throughout, the Stellar patented dump/load interlock system, and an efficient low flow/high pressure hydraulic system.

Stellar Slider hooklifts provide a full-length dump frame and rollers positioned throughout the loader, instead of saddles with wear pads. All Stellar hooklifts operate using in-cab controls. This allows for precise metering of the manual hydraulic valve while offering a clear and safe view of the operation through the rear window.

  • The Slider will accommodate various length bodies and still attain the maximum rated dump angle.
  • Standard in-cab cable controls which allow for precise feathering.
  • Mechanical rear body tie-down system will match a multitude of different latch configurations.
  • All this makes our roll off trucks, the best fit for your business needs

Here is why Dur-A-Lift baskets are better

For Dur-A-Lift, it’s more than just seeing how far the baskets can reach; it’s about the all around experience. Dur-A-Lift’s baskets go above and beyond, and TruckMax Homestead bucket truck experts can provide you with the main five reasons to prove it. Feel free to contact us for a test flight!


Access the basket from ground level. There is no need to store the basket on top of the cab protector until it’s time to move to the next work site. Accomplish jobs quicker and with less people.


Easy access to all the storage compartments right from the basket. Did you forget a tool? If so, there is no need to get out and no need for an extra person. Just lower down, grab what you need and get back to what you were doing.


The new 22 inch hydraulically activated basket elevator allows the operator to raise the basket nearly two extra feet without repositioning the boom or jib, allowing for a greater working height when the boom elevation is limited.


The new top mounted jib and winch allows the operator to rotate the jib to work on either side of the rotating basket. This means more flexibility once the basket is positioned.


Dur-A-Lift’s baskets can rotate 180 degrees, giving you the most effective basket positioning on the market.

Isuzu Updates F-Series for 2022, Adds Class 7 Model

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, announced the Cummins B6.7 diesel engine will now be featured in the new 2022 Isuzu F-Series trucks, for the U.S. and Canadian markets.

This is the first product to come to market globally from the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP) between Isuzu Motors Limited and Cummins Inc., that was formed in 2019.

The 2022 F-Series will be available in two medium-duty models: the Class 6 FTR (25,950-pound GVWR), and the Class 7 FVR (33,000-pound GVWR).

Additionally, the lineup will include a de-rated Class 6 FVR. A total of eight wheelbases will be available for the FTR and FVR models.

The low-cab forward’s larger cab-to-axle space provides the Isuzu F-Series more cargo capacity versus conventional cab competitors with a comparable wheelbase, Isuzu officials said in a press release. This gives customers more versatility with their body application choices to accommodate heavier or more spacious cargo loads.

The FTR and FVR offer a 50-degree inner wheel cut that gives the Isuzu F-Series turning diameters between 43.7-foot (152-inch WB) and 65-foot (248-inch WB). Greater visibility is made possible by Isuzu’s low cab forward-designed cab and new LED headlamps, company officials said. The new interior design has dual-tone trim and enhanced seating.

The Cummins B6.7 is mated to an automatic 6-speed Allison RDS Transmission (2500 Series). With 260 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque, this is the highest horsepower and torque available from the Cummins B6.7.

This power increase in the Isuzu F-Series will easily move heavier payloads through today’s urban environments and over the road between distribution centers, according to the truckmaker.
