Material handling hoppers feature a proprietary positive alignment system and tapered slide box with expanded clearance angles for fast, accurate entry of forktruck forks into hopper base channels. The company offers Economy Bull, Baby Bull and Big Bull series hoppers with weight capacities ranging from 1,500 lbs. to 6,000 lbs. and 1/3 to 2.5 cu. yd. Engineered with structural integrity for rugged, long-term service, all hoppers are strengthened by wrap-around welded lips on back corners, sides extended below hopper bottoms, full-length channel bases, and gussets welded into front corners.
A dual safety lock package includes manual flip lock and retaining chain that hooks onto hoppers, keeping contents intact when stationary and fastening onto forktruck lift masts during transit and dumping, stabilizing loads to prevent accidental sliding or spillage. An optional Dump From Seat latch rope provides added safety, allowing operators to remain seated while releasing loads rather than leaving forktrucks to manually discharge them. — Iron Bull Mfg., 765/597-2480; www.ibullmarketing.com
