Efficient Release Systems
While self dumping hoppers are certainly more convenient to dump than a traditional, solid dumper, there are a few attachments that can make it even more safe and efficient to release your hopper.
For tall loads, consider a pull-down handle system for elevated use. Dumping your hopper into a larger storage container or dumpster can be done with the simple pull of a handle while still seated in your forklift.
Other release systems, like the Mechanical Release System, are a tried-and-true way of safely dumping your hopper while staying seated.
Safe Manual Movement With Casters and Wheels
For days when your forklift is tied up with other projects, you need a more effective way to move your hopper. While you should always follow proper safety protocols when moving a self dumping hopper, additional wheels or casters can make it easier to roll a hopper around your shop floor, particularly if it’s empty.
Protect Your Materials With Lids and Tarps
Many companies use their self dumping hopper for quick trips and immediate dumps into a larger container or pile. However, if you’re planning on keeping materials in your hopper you should consider a tarp or lid.
Lids can turn your hopper into a recycling bin or dumpster. An easy-to-lift plastic lid shields the contents from the elements and helps keep the smell of your garbage at bay.
A tarp, on the other hand, is a great way to temporarily shield your materials from the elements. If you need aren’t finishing dumping by the end of the day, cover your self dumping hopper with a tarp in case of rain or snow storms overnight, over the weekend or all week. Choose either a vinyl or mesh tarp that is custom-fit to your specific hopper.
