Garden Organics & Timber

For larger volumes of organic material – such as garden waste or timber Soilco offers 15m3 and 30m3 bins, with collection by Soilco’s Hook lift truck. The hook lift system employs a series of hydraulic rams to hook, lift and hoist the bin onto the chassis of the truck.

The flexibility offered by the Hook Lift Hoist system offers several advantages:

  • Ground level loading and unloading
  • Exact positioning (dropping off) of containers
  • Ability to get in and out of tight spaces
  • Quick exchange of containers: system allows container to be lift/dropped in around 90 seconds
  • Ability to engage a container up to 30° off center when picking up, important for bins containing food waste
  • Leak proof seals, B locks and all weather tarps to reduce spill risk when transporting
