Used self-dumping hoppers are a safe and easy way to handle bulky loads.  The hopper is made from molded polyethylene, and sits on an all welded steel frame.  Our used self-dumping hoppers have a capacity of 1.5 cubic yards.  A hopper is a lightweight unit, making it easy to dump.  ASI’s used self-dumping hoppers dump at a 45 degree angle using a pull handle. 


Used steel hoppers are made for dumping waste and bulky material quickly and efficiently.  A used steel hopper sits on a hinged base.  Fill a hopper, then pick up with a forklift to deposit the material into a container.  ASI has steel hoppers that are fully welded with leak proof seams.  Large size casters and dumping knees allow two stage dumping action.  Positive locking prevents accidental dumping of the used hopper.


Used utility tilt hoppers are counterbalanced for smooth controlled dumping of debris and other materials.  Our used tilt hoppers have an angled front designed for easy dumping.  Made from a sturdy thick plastic, tilt hoppers won’t dent, corrode, or absorb moisture.  Wheels and axles are inset to prevent damage to the hopper and the building.  ASI’s used utility tilt hoppers are made by Rubbermaid, and come in various sizes of standard and heavy.


New and used hoppers are available made from steel or high density plastic that will satisfy your application requirements. The following types and styles should be considered:

*  Plastic hopper tilt truck

Plastic hopper tilt trucks easily allows one person to handle miscellaneous type waste and refuse removal. These ½ & 2 cubic yard tough polyethylene hopper trucks have a limited weight capacity depending on the size required. Hoppers are balanced for tilting and emptying with minimum effort. A good choice and inexpensive.

Plastic self-dumping polyethylene hoppers have a pull type safety latch that controls the release of the tilting and dumping process. The metal frame allows the hopper to tilt a full 40o below horizontal for dumping all the contents. Hopper then returns to upright position ready for next load. Hopper can be moved with a forklift or manually moved with large casters. Another good choice but somewhat more expensive.

Steel self-dumping hoppers have higher capacities able to handle heavier scrap metal, wood, bricks and sand. Hoppers can be fitted with casters or stationary only allowing hopper movement by forklift. Steel hoppers feature positive locking latch, safety chain securing hopper to forklift, can stack 3 high, welded seams and a top lip for rigidity. Actually somewhat less expensive than the plastic hoppers.

There are other variations with special features that provide added efficiency and function. Call and speak with one of our warehouse technicians who will discuss your needs. Call 800-876-3736 today. You will be satisfied.
