Now Making Dust Hoppers with Pneumatic Disconnects!

No more dealing with frustrating bands and clamps whenever you need to dump the hopper. Just flip the air switch!

The top lid is powered by 2 air cylinders and seals on the hopper when lowered by the cylinders.

Save time by quickly dumping a larger capacity hopper vs emptying smaller bags or bins.

Schlabach Wood went from using multiple hoppers to a single custom pneumatic dust hopper!


Look how a custom sawdust hopper helped this company!

More storage means less dumping needed

Cleaner outside area around the hopper and building

Sight glass indicates when the hopper is full

Easily dumped with forklift or skid steer

Employees detested dumping the barrels, sometimes letting them overfill and clogging the dust collector.”

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.

Automatic Dump-From-Seat™

A nylon leash extends or retracts as needed. The latch rope reel has a magnetic mounting clip, keeping the reel on the hopper when not in use. For in use, simply remove from hopper and magnetically stick it to the forktruck frame. To dump, just lock the thumb button and pull. After dumping, tilt the forktruck mast back and the hopper will automatically roll back into its locked position again.
