• A self-powered demountable container that can handle wheeled refuse bins being carried by a standard skip truck has been developed by Dinnington, Sheffield-based Will Engineer.
The Euro-Skip aims to give local authorities or private waste operators the opportunity to use their skip carriers on regular refuse collection rounds. The lift-off body is independently powered via an electrohydraulic power pack. Capacities start at 13m" for rigid chassis 01 13 tonnes GVW and more. It is compatible with most makes of hook or cable-lift equipment.
Taller containers that can carry extra amounts of lighter waste can also be supplied for use on skip trucks with telescopic arms, Prices start at around £8,500 and in anticipation of a considerable demand, Will Engineer is building a bank stock.
