Lorry Loader

A Lorry Loader, often known as a ‘HIAB’, uses hydraulic attachments to pick up and deposit materials onto a long bed at the rear of the vehicle.  Its swift operating time and capability to manoeuvre heavy and awkward loads into tight or restricted areas makes it a popular choice on site.

We offer certification on the Lorry Loader from the following awarding bodies: CPCS, NPORS, LANTRA, RTITB.
