New Rear-ended Grabs

We have recently invested in four rear ended grabwagons which are working on United Utilities contracts. These grabwagons are on a 4 year contract hire with nearly £750,000 being invested.

As a key feature, the new side tipper’s rear mounted crane offers a hugely increased sweep area, effectively covering the entire area around the truck behind its cab.
By being fully able to work all around the rear of the vehicle, this new Thompson’s tipper effectively gains a third ‘side’ to its capability whereas conventional tipper grabs are limited to just two.

Gallagher recently came second place in Thompson’s Bodybuilding Award for Innovation and Safety for the work we did developing this rear-ended grab and its key features.
