Yorkshire-based Metropolitan Demolition operates nationally and has invested in its second Hiab Multilift Ultima 24S Hookloader on a Scania chassis, joining its 17-vehicle fleet to deliver more demolition projects across the UK.
Thanks to a renewed focus on regeneration projects across UK cities and suburbs, the growing business has seen an upsurge in requests for demolition operations for kick-starting redevelopment.
Michael Hirst, managing director of Metropolitan Demolition said that investment in the best possible equipment was crucial for the firm’s long-term success. He says: “We operate across large-scale commercial sites to prepare spaces for major construction work; these can be inner-city sites or larger developments,” he said. “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.”
The bespoke Multilift Ultima 24S hookloader has extras such as autosequence control, friction relief and drawbar ram protection. These features make the operation of the equipment smooth and easy for the driver and also protect the equipment from potential damage while loading bins at full capacity on to the drawbar trailer. Other features such as undercover sheeting system, stainless tool boxes and chequerplate tandem mudwings help make the vehicle stand out from the crowd.
