Waste Management Company Hooked on Hiab


Grundon Waste Management Ltd, has invested in eight further pieces of equipment from world leading provider of on-road handling equipment, Hiab.   

Grudon Waste Management Opts for Hiab 

The latest purchase, which includes three Hiab Multilift Futura 12 skip loaders and three Multilift Ultima 24S hook loaders, brings the company’s total to 52 pieces of Hiab kit since their first purchase in 2004. There are also ten further products on order due to be delivered by the end of 2022. The new skip loaders and hook loaders join Grundon Waste Management’s 300+ strong fleet to support its nationwide operation in commercial waste management, compactor transportation, specialist treatment and disposal services.

Stephen Townsend, Group Fleet Engineer at Grundon Waste Management stated that they started working with Hiab for cranes back in 2004, when replacing older units. 18 years later and Hiab is now one of their most trusted suppliers for handling equipment. For our latest purchase, Grundon Waste Management was looking to source equipment for a key account with tight criteria and product functionality. From previous experience with Hiab and understanding how they engineered lightness and key geometry benefits they were our go-to for this brief. The Hiab team assisted with this requirement fully, supported by the team in Ellesmere, from whom Grundon Waste Management received great customer support along with product knowledge and experience.

The Multilift Futura skiploader and Multilift Ultima hooklift form part of Hiab’s wider Multilift range which features a variety of pioneering load handling solutions. The Multilift Ultima 24S hooklift features Hiab’s Sequence Performance technology enabling automatic sequence control via a single lever movement for loading, unloading and tipping. Meanwhile, the main equipment, sheeting system and Hydraulic Side Stops, which help to secure the load when operating different width bins or compactors, can all be controlled with Full Remote Control.
