The term lorry loader covers an extraordinary range of equipment.

This contrasts with a top-of-the range lorry loader fitted to a purpose-built tractor or four axle truck. These could be fitted with a knuckle boom and up to 8 hydraulic extensions lifting in excess of 150 tones, and with a reach over 30 meters.
