Scrap Material Handlers - Class Leading, Fast and Durable

Scrap Material Handling Equipment

A scrap material handler is a heavy-duty material handler. The process of scrap involves recovering metals and non-metallic materials for recycling. Unlike waste, scrap has monetary value. Handling scrap requires a vehicle that is specifically designed to deal with the harsh conditions and materials associated with it.

Scrap Material Handlers

HIAB scrap handlers are globally acclaimed as the loader of choice for company owners and operators. Rugged and reliable, HIAB scrap handler loaders offer the durability and speed needed for scrap handling operations and bring an unprecedented level of safety and controllability for operators with lower total cost of ownership to fleets. With multiple model configurations to choose from, an array of attachment options and a variety of mounting configurations Hiab are able to offer a more specific solution to meet the demanding needs and safety requirements of any scrap handling task.


MULTILIFT hooklifts can handle all scrap material with ultimate efficiency, speed, and reliability. Designed and built with superior high-strength steel on a lightweight frame, the daily payload is maximized, which is critical to this industry. MULTILIFT trucks are capable of exchanging bodies in 2 minutes or less. Bodies can be left and/or exchanged on site, enabling works to seamlessly continue and the truck to remain available for other works. MULTILIFT can, therefore, expand the competencies of your business without growing fleet size.
