A Forklift Hopper Can Bring Efficiency and Safety to Your Operation

Although your workers can move hoppers outfitted with casters from one location to another, using a forklift will make your operation more efficient and versatile. You can also minimize the potential for workers injuring themselves while they move heavily loaded hoppers or hazardous materials. Many of the hopper models made by Roura have been designed with forklift slots in their bases so that they can be easily and safely moved regardless of their size and weight.

 

The Roura MHR System Adds an Extra Dimension of Safety and Convenience

When you add a Roura forklift dump hopper to your operation you can also benefit from the option of our revolutionary Mechanical Hopper Release (MHR) system. The system will enable your material handlers to dump the contents of a hopper while they remain seated on their forklift. Our new system provides a much greater degree of safety for your forklift drivers when they transport and dump heavy or hazardous loads of materials.

 

Some of the applications in which our specialized forklift hoppers can be used include:

  • Manufacturing and milling operations
  • Trash disposal and recycling
  • Heavy-duty material handling such as pipes, extruded products and lumber
  • Outdoor construction material clean-up
  • Wet material handling, such as water and sewage treatment applications
  • Safe handling of high-temperature materials such as forgings or hot glass
  • Agricultural, fishery and food industry material handling
  • Transport and removal of shavings, sawdust and metal chips
