Hiab hooks up Metropolitan Demolition


Metropolitan Demolition has acquired a Hiab Multilift Ultima 24S Hookloader on a Scania chassis. The Yorkshire-based demolition specialist has taken on the vehicle in response to what it described as an increase in demand for quick demolition operations to kick-start redevelopment projects.

The Hookloader includes features such as auto sequence control, friction relief, drawbar ram protection, an undercover sheeting system, stainless toolboxes and chequer plate tandem mud wings.

“We operate across large-scale commercial sites to prepare spaces for major construction work; these can be inner-city sites or larger developments,” said Metropolitan’s managing director, Michael Hirst, “because we are often the first delivery phase of a longer-term scheme, it’s vital that we can get the job done quickly and safely to meet deadlines on the project. 

“Our team works with a range of hazardous materials and can be working at significant heights – all of which require careful handling operations to keep our people safe.”
