Learn More About Our Sawdust Hoppers

Sawdust hoppers are designed to efficiently capture and remove sawdust in woodworking shops.  Our sawdust hoppers result in the following:

  • Less dust on the shop floor, workstations, and equipment.
  • Quick, clean, and efficient storage and disposal of sawdust.
  • Cleaner shop and plant.
  • Healthier work environment due to less dust in the air.
  • Happier employees due to cleaner working conditions in your woodshop.

Our customers like the sawdust hopper's gentle emptying action that results in less dust "coughing" in the air while being dumped.

Our sawdust hoppers are designed to work directly with your existing shop setup and ventilation.  The hoppers hook up directly to your cyclone and have a custom-sized inlet port.

Sawdust hoppers can work with other dust hoppers applications as well.  If you are unsure what dust hopper is right for your shop, please contact us to learn more information and have our team help you find the right dust hopper. 

Like our other hoppers, sawdust hoppers can be dumped from the forklift seat.

Capacities available are from 3/4 yard to 10 yards.  Please see below for available dimensions.

After dumping, tilt the forktruck mast back and the hopper will automatically roll back into its locked position again.
