Super Duty Self Dumping Hopper 8000 lbs. cap.
These hoppers are built for extra heavy jobs, extreme use and abuse. Applications include stone, packed glass, hot metal and concrete production, etc. The larger Super Duty hoppers require a heavy duty forklift, normally 10,000 lbs. + to handle the hopper weight and its load. All Super Duty models are constructed with thicker steel components and are beefed up with added support in key areas.
Suggested applications: Heavy scrap of all types (metal, glass, stone, etc.), foundries, stone and glass fabrication, forging operations, and mining and quarrying.
The hopper boxes are constructed with 1/4" carbon steel and the corners, sides and back reinforced with additional angle steel supports. We have also added heavier base rails and more cross channel supports. The rocker assembly use 1/2' thick carbon steel and are supported with additional gussets. Super Duty models include all the standard Hippo Hopper features below:
