    Does anyone know a rough estimate for a 16-tonne (approx) grab hire lorry and the length of the arm?

    I'm doing serious garden landscaping to our house and have removed a lot more junk (stones, bricks, bed frame, broken glass, tins, intact Gordon's Gin bottle, and a ton of surface level bindweed) than I'd imagined. Plus, there's a significant amount of soil, as I'm levelling it off as well as sieving it.

    I filled up one 8-yard skip towards the start of my project back in May but can't afford several more, have had two bonfires and have a pile of mixed waste next to two piles of soil with 50% of the garden still to go.

    If anyone knows of a cheaper alternative in Lincolnshire, don't hold back (council skips only accept one small bag full per day).

    About 250 quid. Reach is about the same as the length of the body: 7/8 metre ish

    Thanky you.
    That's not much more than I paid for the single skip that I filled in half a day :rolleyes:
