Heavy Duty - “Construction Grade”
Star Heavy Duty Self-Dumping Hoppers are constructed of 1/4" and 3/16" steel plate to withstand the use and abuse of a fast moving construction job. These are not the thin sheet metal hoppers you find in many industrial plants but rugged long lasting hoppers designed for the construction industry. Ideal for removing broken-up concrete, plaster, brick and other construction refuse.

Safety First ... these features are
standard on all Star Self-Dumping Hoppers.

Model 1800-LH
Star Self-Dumping Hoppers are available with Heavy-Duty
Steel Casters and 8" diameter Polyurethane Wheels with
Roller Bearings. The combination of the larger wheel size, roller bearings, and the polyurethane tire material
makes it easier to push the hopper over
trash and foreign objects. Rear wheels
swivel for easy maneuverability.
Casters are bolted to hopper (not
welded) so they can be easily
replaced if damaged.
Optional Lifting Hooks (eyes) are available for handling hoppers with a crane. A hook is welded to each corner of the hopper.  Shackles should be used to attach slings to hooks. Heavy duty hooks are designed to handle the weight of
 the empty hopper plus it’s
full rated load capacity.

Please Note: Hopper can not be discharged while suspended with a crane.
