Grab lorries strengthen Kilkern fleet

17th Feb 2022

Kilkern has extended its fast growing fleet with the purchase of three new eight wheel tipper grab lorries.
The acquisitions are part of a longer term strategy to grow the business’s grab lorry numbers to ten vehicles and are in line with its philosophy of making sure it has the most advanced equipment on the road in the UK today.

Each of the 32 tonne Scania P410 8×4 XTs has a 13 litre 6-cylinder diesel engine and is equipped with a Palfinger Epsilon M125L82 grab crane offering 425° of slew and 8.2m of outreach. Height and slew limiters mean the grab lorries are suitable for working in confined spaces or where there are obstacles that pose a potential danger.
The machines conform to Highways England specification.
General manager at Kilkern, Sean Gallagher, sees the arrival of the new tippers as an important statement of intent.
“We have set out our stall to make sure we are able to offer the very best equipment for our clients,” he said. “We’ve been hugely impressed with the capability of these grab lorries and we are confident that clients will feel the same.

“They very much fit our goal of building one of the UK’s most advanced fleets.”
