Ampliroll Truck - Tipper Truck
The hook lift truck is a carrier with a removable body. It is attached to the frame by an articulated hydraulic arm generally fitted with a hook: the hook lift carrier is sometimes called a "hand truck". It should not be confused with the skip loader truck which has a different fixing system.
The main manufacturers of articulated arms are Guima, Dalby, Marrel, Hyva, Jimeca. Marrel is the inventor of the Ampliroll arm system (registered trademark), and is also the origin of another attachment system for polybins: the compass.
The Ampliroll truck can be fitted with an auxiliary crane. It is used to carry all types of skips or containers, and is appreciated as much by transporters as by public works contractors or farmers. Certain skips or containers attached to hand trucks are designed for a specific use: waste reception center, compaction, transport of sludge, etc.
