Hooklifts are mounted on heavy duty trucks to enable haulers to change out flatbeds, dumpster bodies, and similar containers; primarily used in conjunction with tilt frame bodies and specialised containers, generally designed for the transportation of materials in the waste, recycling, scrap and demolition industries. The Hooklift system employs a series of hydraulic rams to hook, lift and hoist the container onto the chassis of the truck. There are several configuration options, and strict guidelines which must be followed to ensure that the container is secured on the truck in transit.


SwapLoader U.S.A., Ltd., located in Des Moines, Iowa, is a sister company of EFCO Corp., a leading manufacturer and worldwide distributor of Systems for Concrete Construction.

EFCO, with over 65 years of manufacturing expertise, began the development of SwapLoader through a Swedish subsidiary in the early 1980’s. At that time, EFCO manufactured hook-lift hoists that were marketed in Europe and used by the Swedish military. Benefiting from the valuable experience gained in Europe, EFCO brought SwapLoader to the U.S. two decades ago. With EFCO’s state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and capabilities, and unparalleled engineering expertise, SwapLoader was completely overhauled to meet EFCO’s exacting standards; it was totally Americanized with all-American parts and built to suit the needs of American haulers.

Today, they maintain their commitment of quality first, they vow to keep SwapLoader on the cutting edge of the hook-lift hoist industry, and they guarantee super service to their distributors and customers.


The Switch-N-Go® Interchangeable Truck Body System is one of four distinct, but interrelated, business units of Deist Industries, Inc. which was formed in 1993. Deist Industries is committed to providing quality American-made truck body equipment at reasonable pricing. Deist Industries is a proud member of the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) and in 2006 attained MVP status within the organization.

The unique, Switch-N-Go interchangeable truck body system was designed, developed and fabricated completely in-house using the talent and resources of their sister company, Bucks Fabricating. Bucks produces a wide variety of traditional roll-off containers also known as dumpsters. In 2002 the Switch-N-Go system was introduced to the medium-duty work truck marketplace and sold through authorized distributors. The Switch-N-Go system was so revolutionary that several patents have been granted to Deist Industries.
