Turn your forklift into a loader with the Star Industries Self-Dump bucket

The bucket installs in minutes and is the perfect solution for loading loose material. No modification to the forklift is required. A hydraulic dump option is also available.

Manual Self-Dump Buckets

No modifications or hydraulics required. Simply slide the bucket on the forks and insert the pins to lock it on. The bucket can be tripped with the handle at the back of the bucket or from the operator’s seat with the remote rope release. Lowering the bucket to the ground resets the bucket for the next load. The safety lock prevents accidental tripping of the bucket release during transport.

Hydraulic Self-Dump Buckets

The Hydraulic self-dump bucket provides precise control of the discharge. Hydraulic flow from the forklift is required (hydraulic control valve not included). If the forklift is equipped with a hydraulic side shift, flow from that valve can typically be diverted to the bucket cylinder.
