Self-Dumping Hoppers With Wheels

Why do you want a self dumping hopper? They make transporting and dumping all sorts of materials safe, easy, and efficient. Roura Material Handling sells many types of these specialized hoppers, and a popular type is our self dumping hoppers with wheels. They let you move large loads of materials, from construction debris to industrial components, with ease.

Lasting Quality

The best dump hoppers with wheels are built not only to make storing, moving, and dumping materials easy, fast, and safe, but they are also built to last year after year in the toughest conditions. When you buy a self dumping hopper with casters, you are investing in an important piece of equipment that will serve you for a long time. The best hoppers are made with plate steel and have continuous welds with 10- and 12-gauge carbon steel.


Quality self dumping hoppers are initially designed to tilt up to 90 degrees when on a forklift, but some forward-thinking manufacturers make their hoppers easy to tailor to your specific needs. Many makers create a basic hopper design, and you can add features you need to it.

  • Size
  • Taper pins
  • Lids

Self dumping hoppers with wheels make material transport easy without heavy equipment, and they are ideal for companies with lightweight materials and indoor storage. They roll easily along warehouse floors. Some manufacturers let you customize hoppers based upon what you will be using them for, including storing and moving irregularly shaped objects, hazardous materials, and liquids.


Self dumping hoppers can generally hold loads between 2,000 lbs. and 10,000 lbs. When made well, even the largest hoppers will tilt and easily dump material exactly where you need it, which is why these types of hoppers are so popular.

The keys to successful material handling are efficiency, safety, and accuracy. The best hoppers give you these vital abilities and let you add whatever you need. Some manufacturers even let you tailor hoppers to fit particular vehicles.
