The Top Brand in the Waste Industry

Since 1971, Galbreath® has built a reputation for the waste industry’s best products, and to this day, we remain the most respected hoist, container handler and tri-axle, tandem-axle and roll-off trailer manufacturer. Our rugged equipment is built to outlast and outperform everything else on the market — in fact, our products are engineered to outlast the truck itself!

Our comprehensive line of quality mobile products provides safe, reliable transport of waste, recyclables and other commodities. We manufacture a variety of truck-mounted and trailer hoists in single-, tandem- and multi-axle configurations designed to accommodate most types of roll-off containers. We also manufacture container handlers for moving and placing front load and rear load containers.

In 2000, Galbreath became part of the Wastequip® brand family, offering customers in the waste handling, recycling and scrap industries access to a wide variety of additional products, including containers, tarping systems, compactors, carts and parts. We’re here to meet all your needs with high-quality products and superior customer service and support.
