Skyhook Crane Info Help

Posted on Fri, 28 Mar 2008 at 13:34



We have a Skyhook 65 s sp. I was told it was a heavy duty. But shouldn't it say 65 hd? I have seen posts where someone is looking for a 65 s sp and then it says (hd). What is the deal? I cannot find any info on these cranes. Please, somebody help.

The 65 SSP is stronger than the regular 65 footer. It's actually a standard skyhook 85 footer without the last 20 foot smallest diameter tube.
This makes for a sweet truck as it's strong but stays under the 26,000 pound GVW that requires CDL licensing. My 65 SSP factory built by Phoenix Corp (Skyhook) has a GVW of just under 24,000 pounds.
The Skyhook 85 HD is a totally different crane, is much heavier than the standard 85 footer and requires a heavier truck than either the 65 SSP or the Skyhook standard 85 footer.
