6x4 (6 wheeler) gantry`s are a bit rare mainly used for scrap steel, rubble, dirt etc..so if anyone would like to add to this topic that be great.

Picture is a 03 Isuzu mini skip..one of the best set up gantry trucks i`ve driven: 3 tonne extendable lifter able to carry up to 12 2m empties or combinations of various size bins. Bins as shown front to back : 4.5 with 3.5 on top, 3x2m with 3.5 on top, a very versatile cost effective truck.



I got a vid of a hook lift truck in actionn,, but i don't got any pics. Mitch would have heaps of pics of hooklift trucks
