Clients from many industries count on Roura self-dumping hoppers to improve efficiency, economy and safety in their material handling operations. Our self dumping hoppers with wheels offer even more utility and versatility, giving you additional transport and maneuvering options.
When forklift transport is limited, our wheeled self-dumping hoppers allow you to move your materials over dirt, debris, water, dry ground or smooth surfaces. No matter how heavy your loads are, we have hoppers that can transport them safely and effectively.
Wheel and Caster Options for Every Environment
You may already know that Roura Material Handling offers self-dumping hoppers in a large selection of sizes, capacities and customizable add-ons. Our removable caster and wheel sets can be built onto virtually any self-dumper, available in a huge range of combinations to meet your operational requirements.
Each caster/wheel set contains two swivel rear casters and two rigid front casters. Customize your self dumping hopper with casters and wheels crafted from sturdy materials designed to handle your production environment:
- Ductile iron: ideal for rough floors with metal chips and debris
- Semi-steel: designed for large-sized hoppers on rough flooring
- Polyurethane: non-marking, quiet rolling and resists oil, water, grease and most solvents
- Phenolic: quiet, easy rolling, non-marking, spark-proof and ideal on smooth or rough floors
- Polyolefin: high shock and impact tolerance, resistant to most chemicals and usable on smooth or rough floors
- Rubber tied: quiet rolling, shock absorbing and ideal for use on smooth floors with light loads
Each swivel wheels is mounted on a kingpinless swivel rig. We also offer removable caster pads, which help you more easily remove and attach our casters. Crafted from heavy-gauge steel, each pad features a positive steel enclosure for the caster mounting plate to slide directly into the pad.
After securing the nut to the bolt, each caster stays firmly in place. Removal is just as simple: unfastening the nut and sliding the caster from the bracket. With this convenient accessory, you can quickly swap out damaged casters using common hand tools and avoid significantly slowing down operations.
