I used to run a similar sort mine was a cable lifter on 18 tonner which I didn't like!! I would like to try a hook loader to see how it would compare?? It worked well on job's carting away to be honest only with a skip wagon you could take more bins at a time with you and cut's out the running back for another skip?

But you would get more muck on a hook bin? And if you had multiple skips on a job you would still only be able to take one at a time to tip..

For a multi use skip on a Telescopic Gear Skip Loader you can basically make a full width (to just fit between the arms) and length (including half a metre or so overhang of the flat portion of body) skip body with barn doors just like a Hookloader skip?

It would easily carry your setup and be able to be loaded to the required capacity?

If you went short 6 wheeler (ex tractor unit), you could get a Hiab between the Skip Gear and Cab too?

Looks as though it's a hook (if that's what it is sticking out the top of the bin)

Shaun, company I used to work for have a 6x4 DAF cf hookloader, two bodies a tipper box with barn doors and a flatbed c/w ramps and slots for a moffet mounty. You can fit a JCB 8055 in the back of the tipper box, anything wider you would need to use the flat, used to move the js130 around with her, she was just on the weight limit with a full set of buckets, height wise she was spot on, can't remember exact height. She did a grand job, only thing for me was the lorry was a let down! For a 6x4 she was shite! Our old foden alpha would go places the DAF feared with ease, do just make sure you pick the right truck I have some photos I will upload later
