Valley Craft’s Hydraulic Powered Self-Dumping Hoppers were engineered with safety and productivity in mind, and are unlike any other hoppers on the market. Utilizing technology that includes a hydraulic actuator paired with a forklift auxiliary circuit, these units are able to provide users complete powered control during the entire dumping and retracting process.
To get started, insert the forklift forks through the fork pockets on the hopper and secure your unit to the forklift using the included safety chain. Then simply attach the included quick-connect couplers to the forklift auxiliary circuit. You are now ready to operate your unit ergonomically by utilizing the convenient in-cab powered forklift controls.
Finding the right unit for your needs is easy with available options in 1 or 2 cubic yards, and 2,000/4,000/6,000 lb. load capacities. Constructed of heavy duty steel, up to 7 gauge, all units come standard as leak-proof with continuous solid welds. Be certain to maximize efficiency with quick 5 second cycle times, and (4) optional casters for added mobility (sold separately).
Other hoppers often require unsafe dumping practices ranging from manipulating latches, pull cords, manually assisting the dump, or even “ramming” the forklift to initiate the dump. By utilizing Valley Craft’s Hydraulic Powered Self-Dumping Hoppers, you no longer need to rely on manual manipulation nor put employees in an unsafe situation.
Ideal for assisting facilities in OSHA compliance (Rule29CFR1910.178(m)(5)(iii)) and LEAN initiatives, these Hydraulic Powered Self-Dumping Hoppers are complete with a powder coat finish for a premium look that holds up over time. Products are shipped fully assembled.
