Runner Up: Gecko – TruckLoader

Plantworx said;  “The Runner Up in the Efficiency Category is a relatively simple idea, but one that could make a difference on a lot of sites – particularly where space is limited or access is difficult. It is the TruckLoader skip system from Gecko, which has been designed to make muck away safer, easier and more efficient.

The skip can be landed and discharged directly into tipper trucks, RORO skips, barges or onto the floor for stockpiling, giving construction sites an alternative to traditional methods like boat skips and circular muck skips.

The innovation in the TruckLoader means that a truck on any site with a crane can be loaded without the need for secondary discharge equipment; and at any point within the reach of the crane, making it ideal for sites with restricted access”.
