If you’re like most people, you’ve probably wondered at some point what on earth a grab lorry is and when the heck you’d ever need one for waste removal. Well, grab a cup of coffee (or tea, your choice!), because I’m about to spill the beans on everything you need to know about grab lorries and when they’re the superhero of rubbish removal.

What’s a Grab Lorry Anyway?

Let’s start at the beginning. A grab lorry, also known as a grab truck or grabber, is like the Swiss Army knife of waste removal. It’s a versatile vehicle equipped with a hydraulic arm and grab bucket. This arm extends, grabs, and lifts waste materials, making it a real beast when it comes to collecting all sorts of junk. From construction debris to garden waste, these bad boys can handle it all.

The Grab Lorry Arsenal

Grab lorries come in different sizes and types, so you can choose the one that fits your needs best. Here’s a quick rundown of the common types:

  • Midi Grab Lorry: The compact version, perfect for tight spaces.
  • 16-Ton Grab Lorry: Ideal for bulkier waste, like construction materials.
  • 32-Ton Grab Lorry: Heavy-duty and great for large-scale cleanups.

Now that we’ve met the players let’s get into when you should call them into action.
