Lorry Mounted Crane (Hi-Ab) Training


The term lorry loader covers a wide range of equipment. The smallest compact lorry loaders are fitted to builders’ pick-up trucks and vans often with a lifting capacity of less than 500 kilograms and are manually operated.

This contrasts with a top-of-the range lorry loader fitted to a purpose-built tractor or four axle truck. These could be fitted with a knuckle boom and up to 8 hydraulic extensions lifting in excess of 150 tones, and with a reach over 30 meters.
