Mainsway skip hire and haulage company, which has a waste transfer station in Huyton, Merseyside, has bought two MCBT-6E skip loaders from Atlas Cranes.
The loaders have been fitted to two 7.5-tonne DAF trucks. John Barker, sales manager for Mainsway, said: “It’s a great set of lifting gear. You can just position the wagon to do the exchange. You don’t need to pull the vehicle away so you save a lot of time.
“The drivers using the two wagons fitted with this equipment reckon it’s a lot quicker to exchange skips, which will be great for the business.”
Atlas Cranes UK joined forces with Spanish-based Cayvol a year ago to create the Atlas by Cayvol range, a selection of skip and hook loaders which are new to the UK.
