A demonstration day was run for the GAPO on 29 November 2012 as a CIWM Business Club event. The event was well attended by specialist operators, hirers and press from within the waste and recycling world.

The event was run in conjunction with Red Rhino Crushers. JCB kindly supplied a digger to lift rubble into the crusher. The crusher then filled a hook lift skip that the GAPO then moved around the yard – a perfect demonstration!

Fairport Containers donated a pair of newly refurbished skips for the day which kicked off with some welcome bacon butties on a freezing cold November morning.

The GAPO impressed as expected and proved its simplicity and ease of operation to visitors who drove it around the yard and quickly mastered it’s ability for precise lifting and moving. Particular interest was registered by the contract hire sector where they could see a ready customer base for this cost saving skip mover.

A short film of the day is available to view in our Gallery.
