GAPO innovation: moving skips and saving costs across the UK


SINCE taking off in the UK waste market, the GAPO has proved the right solution for customers looking to improve efficiency when moving hooklift skips on site.

With customers including Viridor, Renewi, Smurfit Kappa, and PepsiCo, the GAPO is changing skip handling in the UK market.

The product is a powerful, radio remote-operated, motorised power unit. An economical three cylinder Yanmar engine powers hydrostatic drives that provide the power to lift and pull loads of up to 20 tonnes.

With run-flat tyres and robust steel construction the GAPO is built to last in the most challenging environments.

Cost-effective solutions

A key selling point for the GAPO is its cost-saving advantages over alternative vehicles. Radio remote operation allows complete visibility around a skip that is being moved.

This removes the need for an additional banksman to work with a cab-based driver. Running costs are low with no MOT or VOSA checks required and the engine is easily maintained and economical to run.

UK users have found it invaluable to have a unit on site capable of moving a skip at any time rather than waiting for a hooklift truck to return to site.

The GAPO can also boast incredible manoeuvrability. The turning circle on the unit is a full 90° in each direction – which makes it perfect for congested yards.
