Recycling Cranes & Waste Equipment

Waste & Recycling Equipment

Recycling Cranes

HIAB recycling cranes are renowned for their durability and strength to weight ratio. Designed to easily handle all types of materials, HIAB recycling cranes have the perfect combination of precision and power to increase the efficiencies of operations.

Truck Mounted Forklifts

As the demand for recycling grows, so does the need for faster and more frequent pick ups from super centers, retail outlets, grocery stores and home improvement centers.The MOFFETT offers a unique alternative to the counterbalanced forklift that is commonly used today. It’s lightweight design and ability to mount/dismount in less than a minute allow users to pick up more material, in less time while maintaining the required payload on the transport truck. 

Material Handler Cranes

HIAB material handler cranes offer the flexibility needed to work smoothly with the local infrastructure of the waste and recycling operations. Rugged and reliable, these loaders bring an unprecedented level of safety for operators and deliver lower total cost of ownership to waste and recycling fleets.


MULTILIFT hooklifts can handle all waste and recyclable 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. With non-CDL and CDL options available, MULTILIFT increases productivity and gives the competitive edge with all load-handling challenges.

Knuckle Boom Crane Features

HiConnect Remote Connectivity

HIAB HiConnect™ is a web-based dashboard that displays insights on equipment usage, location, time in operation, idle time, and productivity level. By enabling new insights, it helps you to further increase efficiency, productivity, and safety. HiConnect is the latest technology in terms of connectivity capabilities. Being able to remotely access data is key to maximizing your business with facts instead of assumptions. HiConnect maintains constant contact with all units, giving fleet managers the ability to stop unsafe behavior and usage before an incident happens. With the ability to view service history and plan upcoming services, your fleet has minimum downtime and increases daily efficiencies.

Truck Mounted Forklift Features

Remote Ground Mount

Remote Ground Mount (RGM) allows the operator to completely mount or dismount the MOFFETT without the need to climb onto or off of an elevated forklift. With up to a 25' range, the wireless remote control allows the operator to stand away from the machine and traffic during the mounting and dismounting process. This means staying out of the line of traffic or other jobsite hazards while giving optimal visibility during the mounting/dismounting process.

Material Handler Loader Features

Estop System

An optional E-stop kit improves safety. One hit on the button stops all operations – just what you need in an emergency, such as hydraulic system failure. This option also includes operator indication for transport status of boom and stabilizers and operational status of capacity.


Electric Cab Controls

All MULTILIFT systems are outfitted with electric cab controls as a standard feature, not an upgrade.
