Vestil Galvanized heavy-duty Self-Dumping Hoppers With Bumper Release - 6,000 LB, D Series automatically dump when the bumper release contacts the side of a dumpster or other solid surface. Hoppers may also be dumped manually using a pull cable operated from the seat of the forklift. Hoppers automatically return to an upright and locked position after dumping. A safety restraint is provided to secure the hopper to the forklift. These galvanized forklift dump hoppers aid in complying with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178(m)(5)(iii) since the fork lift operator stays at the forklift controls when dumping. Models D-25, D-33, D-50, D-75, and D-100 can be stacked if the top forklift hopper is turned 90 degrees from the bottom hopper. Heavy-duty 8-gauge Galvanized Steel construction.

Optional Casters (see options below)
When casters are ordered with hopper, quick-install caster pads are factory-welded to the base of the hopper.
The weight of the hopper must be subtracted from the rated caster capacity to calculate usable caster capacity.
When using casters, the maximum hopper capacity is the lower of the hopper capacity or the caster capacity.
