Hopper Base Options
Roura manufactures two basic designs of hopper bases. Our open channel bases are standard on all Durable model hoppers, and 2 1/2 cu. yd. and smaller Rugged and Ultimate Strength hoppers. These bases are constructed with 1/4″ thick track on all one ton (1T) and two ton (2T) models and 5/16″ track for all hoppers over two tons (3T through 5T).
Our boxed tube design is standard on all 3 cu. yd. and larger Rugged and Ultimate Strength hoppers and optional on all other two ton (2T) and three ton (3T) models. This design is constructed from 1/4″ plate steel on all 1/2 cu. yd. and smaller hoppers and 5/16″ tube for 1 cu. yd. and larger. This base design is unique to the industry and provides superior durability for heavy load applications as well as resistance to aggressive handling.
A variety of other base options are available including Three-Way Fork Entry Bases and Base Legs. In addition, Roura can modify these standard bases to include extra reinforcements, closed fork pockets, or modified fork pocket dimensions.
