We’re excited to see this one roll out the door, as it’s the first West-Trans Hook Lift for Grass Hopper. Grass Hopper took two of our MXS-150 heavy duty skip loaders last year, which you can see on the front cover of the West-Trans Facebook page, and have come back to work with us on their new hook lift. ✅ This is a tough combination, with a West-Trans HL20a (articulated jib), hook lift, mounted on a Scania P450 8x4.
It’s the details that make this one a great build. Starting with Australia’s toughest made Hook Lift, with an articulated jib, West-Transcover pneumatic tarp tower, mesh tarp box, flashing beacons on the tarp tower and rear light bar, work lights on the tarp tower, bin rests and rear light bar, recessed clearance lights on the custom light boxes, ringfeder, and the trade mark Grass Hopper luminous green paint. 💚
No, not the 1954 road movie 😂 But 2 brand new West-Trans skip bodies and a new HMF4020K6 and its fitting kit loaded and ready to roll out the gate, being delivered to West-Trans Victoria for fitting over the next couple of weeks. ✅
The skip loaders have been custom built for specific customers, and the big HMF crane will receive a West-Trans Equipment designed, engineered and built sub frame, all fitted to a new 8 wheel Mercedes Actros from Daimler North Laverton.
We're looking forward to seeing all of these on the road soon! Stay tuned for more photos.
If we told you that the skilled hands of West-Trans brought this truck and loader back to life, would you believe us? 🤔
Well, if you answered yes - you‘re absolutely correct! ✅
This one has been in for a serious face lift. Brown Bros. skips sent this little one in recently after an on road altercation. We took the body off, gave it a full make over, and re-spray, and fitted it to a brand new cab-chassis.
We don't build a lot of these Bi-Fold DS-40, but for the right applications they are unbeatable. This one got a second chance of life, there are a few waves in the deck, and she has done her fair share of work, but the re-finished product looks fantastic. 👏🏼
