Grab Lorries FAQs

Commonly asked grab lorry questions

Below is a list of the questions that our grab lorry hire team often gets asked. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, give us a call today on 01202 579579.

A grab lorry is a vehicle with an extendable arm that is perfect for picking up waste (construction, green waste etc.). They are extremely convenient for easily moving large quantities.

A grab lorry’s reach depends on its arm length, which depends on the size of the lorry. At AMS, we have various size grabs including 6 wheelers with a 5m reach, and 8 wheelers a 8m reach.

This also depends on the size of the grab itself. Our 6 wheelers carry up to 12 tonnes and our 8 wheel grab lorries can carry up to 16 tonnes.

Yes, we are able to lift materials and waste over certain obstacles. However, this is dependent on the size of the vehicle being used and the obstruction that is present. For guidance or to arrange a site inspection, please call our team on 01202 579579.
