UK Grab Trucks hit Queensland

Combining a grab crane and tipper body with an Isuzu FXZ 1500, Grab Trucks owner Owen Scott believes this new application is making the lives of construction workers, landscape gardeners and home handymen in Australia much easier.

Grab Trucks can collect soil, sand, rubble, concrete, mulch and green waste including large logs and trees. The truck can also collect general household waste and even cars.  “In terms of occupational health and safety the grapple trucks are ideal, as the operator has a complete view of the area that they are working on, including the back of the truck,” said Mr Scott.

The grab crane and tipper body is fitted to the rear of the Isuzu FXZ 1500. With a 345 horsepower engine, the Isuzu FXZ 1500 eases its way through most driving conditions. Hooks fastened to the Isuzu FXZ 1500 allow for deliveries of bulk skip bags, of which he can fit up to 15 in one load. 

“Our domestic clients include households that need rubbish removal. Our commercial clients often include tree loppers who need trees removed and builders who require their sites cleaned. I also deliver mulch, soil and other garden products to landscapers and take away their spoil and waste,” explained Mr Scott.

“And we do deliveries as well – we can grab material, such as mulch, soil or boulders, and position it straight into the area where it's needed. We can reach over walls or fences or we can drop material straight into a wheelbarrow, instead of tipping a large load onto the road or driveway. We can also load up other tippers if required.”
