Material handling wheel loaders in the Fraser Valley are used in a variety of industries. Everything from mining, forestry, construction and even waste handling applications require a large machine to move large amounts of material.

There is also no reason that a wheel loader must be limited to moving aggregate material, specialty buckets and attachments can open up new applications for your machine. Grapples or forks are great for pipe handling operations or logging sites. If you are looking to stockpile large amounts of material, consider a high-dump or roll-out bucket for your wheel loader. Waste handling operations typically require specifically designed buckets as well, better suited for rough metal pieces than a light material handling bucket.

Compact wheel loaders can be an attractive alternative to skid-steer loaders, especially when you are trying to minimize surface damage. Having an articulated chassis gives a wheel loader much greater maneuverability around any job site.
