A self-dumping hopper essentially is a container that is able to discard contents without the need for manual assistance from an operator. Which is a much safer alternative because the operator is not in harm's way. It works by the forklift tilting the mast just a few degrees forward, the orange box will tip and the unique self-locking mechanism will release the door. Tilt the mast back or lower to the ground, and the self-dumping hopper will reset and the door is locked.
Self Dumping Hopper Safety
When compared to a traditional dump box that requires the operator to manually dump the box and assist with contents being released a self-dumping hopper when used correctly eliminates the risk of injury or even death. This is because the forklift operator is able to release the contents in the dump box within the safety of the forklift operating station. Please note that all of our boxes are also painted and coated with a safety orange rust resistant industrial finish, hence where "the Orange Box" name originated from.
