The important things to know about grab lorry hire
Although grab lorries naturally differ from one to the other, they generally weigh about 16 tonnes when empty, and are able to legally carry as much as 16 tonnes on the road – equating to a maximum authorised mass of 32 tonnes. Depending on the type of material, this means that a grab lorry can generally carry between 12 and 15 cubic metres of waste.
There are various other figures and dimensions that are vital to consider before you commence with grab lorry hire. Grab lorries tend to be around three metres in width, for example, with an extra 25cm minimum clearance typically being recommended for either side – equating to a 3.5m total minimum entrance size.
Headroom will also need to be considered, as a minimum of 3.8 metres is required for a grab lorry to pass under. You will also need to factor in an extra two metres for the operation of the crane. The vehicle can generally be loaded in around 15-30 minutes.
