Grab Loader Trucks for Sale (42)

Called many different names by operators across the UK, the Grab Loader – or ‘Tipper Grab’ is a tipper with a front mounted crane which has been fitted with a grab bucket.

These trucks are often seen at roadworks when there are holes to be dug.  These grab lorries are responsible for the tidying up after the excavators have finished their work.  Once the tipper body has been loaded by the grab bucket, the truck can drop the load using the tipping body at a suitable location.

These trucks are usually 6×4 rigids although there are plenty of 8×4 grab loaders for sale at Truckpages.

Used Grab loaders

The most common used grabloader on the Truckpages website are DAF tipper grabs – unsurprising since DAF are UK market leaders across nearly all truck weight ranges.

Other popular choice of chassis for a grabloader are MAN, Volvo and Scania.

Used Grabloader Buying Advice

Look for cranes by Palfinger – especially their Epsilon series or HMF – check that the crane is first life and wasn’t installed second hand.

Make sure there is a current LOLER inspection on the crane and that all elements are fully operational.  As it is a grabloader, it will be relatively easy to test the operation of the crane locally. Does it rotate as it should?  What condition is the bucket in?  Is there more than one bucket/grab available?

As with buying any tipper make sure that the hydraulics are operational and there are no leaks in the tipping mechanism or in and around the crane.

Does the tipping body have an easy sheet system?  If so what is the condition of the sheeting and the mechanical system? Is there on-board weighing? Does it work properly? Is the truck fitted with rear and side view cameras?

All of these extras make the job easier, but they will also add to the price of a used grabloader. As with buying any truck always shop around for the right truck with the right equipment – it is much more important getting the right tool for the job, rather than trying to save a couple of pounds at the time of purchase!

Here is a video from Kel-Berg showing a new grabloader with a Palfinger Epsilon M125 crane and grab bucket and under-body tipping ram

Low Entry Volvo Cab for Grabloader Work

Expect to see more trucks of this type appearing on our streets – low entry cabs are better for the driver and crew and better for pedestrians thanks to the improved visibility over a standard truck cab.  They are no longer simply the domain of refuse trucks. Expect to see at least three more on the roads, as Ringway has added three new Volvo FE 6x2 rigid trucks to its expansive fleet, with low-entry cabs. The highway maintenance specialist will use the 26-tonne crane-equipped tippers on a variety of contracts in busy urban areas across England. It’s about improving community…

Repeat Business for Mercedes Arocs 8×4 Grabloaders

Here’s a good test of a truck and the availability of new trucks.  Leedale buys two Mercedes Arocs 8x4 tipper grabs and two from a competing manufacturer (who shall remain nameless here). Some ten months on, two more trucks are needed and the deal goes to Mercedes-Benz.  The trucks themselves must have played a large part in the repeat order heading towards Mercedes dealer, Rygor Commercials, but consider too that the deal was done and the trucks were delivered inside a fortnight.  That should be enough to clinch even a close deal. Like their predecessors, Leedale’s new trucks had been…

Brand new Mercedes Arocs eight-wheel Grabloader Delivered in a Fortnight

No six-month wait for the chassis to be made to order, followed by a three-month multi-stage build for the body and crane. Scaffolding specialist Hadley Group ordered their new Arocs using the Mercedes ‘WorkReady’ programme and it arrived inside a fortnight – ready-bodied. To operate in the company’s new waste management the new Arocs is its first tipper-grab, a 32-tonne 3240 which is now lined up alongside an 8x4 Arocs hook-loader which was supplied six weeks earlier, also in double-quick time, by the same Dealer, Intercounty Truck & Van. Although the Kent-based operator runs a number of other Mercedes-Benz trucks,…

First Mercedes Econic Tipper Grab Loader

Where trucks are working across London, responsible truck operators will increasingly specify low-entry cabs, not just for ease of access, but mainly for improved direct vision and enhanced safety for pedestrians and other road users. Long the mainstay of the refuse collection world, these low entry cabs will be specified as tippers, scaffolding, refrigerated trucks and – as Eurovia Contracting have – grab loaders. The Mercedes Econic is one of the major players in the low entry cab market – although others are starting to play catch up. Eurovia Contracting decided that the safety of its staff and other vulnerable…

DAF Grab Loader Trucks (17)

Usually the Grabloaders advertised on these pages are DAF CF models - the older ones CF85 and the newer, Euro 6 DAF Grab  loaders are most likely to be a CF440 or sometimes the lower powered CF410.

The grabloader is essentially a tipper truck that has a crane fitted to the front of the body, just behind the cab. It is often used to collect the rubble from building sites and the sides of the roads. Expect to see 8x4 32 tonne versions, although smaller 6x4 versions do become available.
