Dump Hoppers: A Buyer's Guide
What Is a Dumping Hopper?
A dump hopper is a container used to temporarily store materials so that they can be dumped easily. Dump hoppers are used in construction, warehousing, agriculture and other material handling industries to process, dispose of or relocate materials. Some self dumping hoppers or dumpers attach to forklifts. They usually operate by picking up the raw materials or refuse, automatically returning to an upright position and locking so that they can be reloaded. Dump hoppers are categorized by volume capacity, weight capacity, depth or length, width or diameter, and what they are made of. The versatility, dependability, and variety of self dumping hoppers and dumpers make them an essential component for any worksite dealing with large, often unmanageable, material. At Nationwide, we feel self dumping hoppers (also known as forklift hoppers) are the most useful and practical type of hopper.
Choosing a Dump Hopper
Dump hoppers come in a variety of sizes, each offering different load capacities. There are low profile dump hoppers for applications that require lower access. Many light duty hoppers have load capacities of 2000 lbs. Medium duty hoppers typically have 4000 lbs. load capacity. And heavy duty dump hoppers offer a 6000 lbs. load capacity. Other self dumping hoppers offer a bumper release option. There are plastic dumping hoppers, which offer benefits such as being quiet, light and easy to handle. Steel hoppers are much stronger, more durable and can carry heavier loads. Some accessories for self dumping hoppers include lids and casters, which allow portability. Since hoppers vary based on how and/or what you want to dump, you should take all of your specific needs into consideration.
Heavy Duty Dump Hoppers
Heavy duty dumping hoppers are commonly used for severe applications where a structural base is needed. The form of self dumping hopper is perfect for processing, scrap yards, heavy stamping and other heavy duty material handling applications.
Large Volume Dumping Hoppers
Large volume dumping hoppers are used to handle bulky loads that standard hoppers are unable to handle.
Bumper Release Dump Hoppers
Bumper release dumping hoppers dump when the bumper release is pushed. They automatically return to the upright, locked position after dumping. There is usually a safety lock to prevent accidental dumping on this style of industrial hopper.
