Maintenance Ladders, Industrial Platforms, Man Lifts
PlatformsandLadders.com is committed to being your source for hoppers. Whether at the office, in a restaurant, or on a construction site, Hoppers can be a great way to get the job done. They can be used for recycling purposes, neatly storing unneeded cardboard and packaging materials in an industrial storage bin to be brought to the recycling plant at a later time.
Self Dumping Hoppers make cleanup easy and safe by keeping scrap materials out of the way. Scraps of wood, metal, drywall, nails, or roof tear offs can be be collected in one spot, protected from the weather and safeguarding workers. Self Dumping Hoppers are designed to dump when the bumper release is actuated. After dumping, the hopper returns to an upright and locked position automatically. A cable that may be operated from the seat of the fork truck to manually dump is also included. For safety, a restraint is provided to secure the hopper to the fork truck. Fork pockets are 7-1⁄2" wide x 2-1⁄2" high. We have dumpers with weight capacities of 6,000 lbs.
Low Profile Hopper Units offer a 90° dump angle with a cushioned rubber bumper stop. The low profile design makes for convenient loading. Dumping occurs when a cable is pulled from the seat of the fork truck. The hopper returns to an upright and locked position when lowered to the ground. For safety, a restraint is provided to secure the hopper to the fork truck and must be attached to the fork truck when dumping the hopper. 22" long usable fork pockets are 7" wide x 2" high. The base thickness is 1/4". A blue powder coat finish is standard.
Steel Chute Hoppers are great for areas with limited space. They have a front door that opens to dump the hopper contents. The door automatically closes and locks after the hopper has been dumped. The front door is opened with a release cable that is operated from a safe distance. Units are moved with a fork truck. A safety chain is used to secure the hopper to the fork truck.
Portable Steel Hoppers have casters to make handling waste and bulk material safer and convenient. Fork truck entry tubes are included to move the hoppers over rough terrain. Portable Steel Hoppers are not to be used as a self dumping hopper. Usable fork pockets are 7" x 2" on 21-5/8" centers (11-5/8" fork pocket center for ½ cubic yard capacity model only). A foot operated caster lock is included. These hoppers must be attached to the fork truck when dumping contents. Welded construction and powder coat blue finish make them durable.
