Firewood Hopper:

Load firewood or mulch without damaging your customers vehicle. Different sizes available.

Customers love it when you’re easy on their trucks or trailers. With a conventional hopper, you have to be an expert forktruck operator to get it positioned just right. But with the new EZ-Load Hopper, almost any operator can load a pickup without sending firewood pieces flying.

Iron Bull’s EZ-Load Hopper loads firewood, mulch or other materials from the bottom.

The operator controls how fast the drop bottom doors open as the hopper is raised.
All action is controlled from the operators seat. Faster, easier and safer. No damage, no complaints.

Fluid Reclaim Hopper:

Store and transfer your scrap without worrying about oil, water, or other liquids also being emptied into the hopper.

Depending on what you work with on your manufacturing floor, you may have oil or other liquids entering the hopper.  This usually makes a mess because you don't want to dump this liquid into your larger roll-off dumpster.  The fluid reclaim hopper allows you to easily drain this liquid before you dump your hopper!

This feature is available in self-dumping hoppers in sizes 1/8 yard to 2 yards.

Skid Steer Quick Attach Hopper

Have an easy way to move a self-dumping hopper on the construction site, farm, or off-road area with a skid steer attachment!

It can be difficult to use self-dumping hoppers in areas where a forklift can't easily go.  That's why we offer the skid steer quick attach hopper for all of our regular self-dumping hoppers.  This feature is available on self-dumping hoppers 3.75' to 10' wide.

Pickup Truck & Trailer Hopper

Much more capacity than a conventional hopper.

An easy way to gather and transport debris around construction sites, farmsteads, golf courses or other places where a pickup or trailer can easily access.

Made to fit any pickup truck bed for handling daily construction site and other debris. Back door opens for convenient loading height.
At the debris dump site, the fork truck lifts the hopper from the bed, takes it to a roll-off container or dump site. Empties from bottom and front.
Now construction workers don't need to clean out daily debris by hand at the end of a hard day's work. The automatic Dump-from-Seat™ is standard for this hopper.

Iron Bull Job-Hopper™

Converts from a work platform to a trash hopper and vice versa in under 2 minutes.

Enjoy a self-dumping hopper that quickly converts into a work platform by adding a safety railing.
The Job-Hopper™ is a multi-purpose work platform for jobs like siding, windows, trim, gutters and other work off the ground. The safety railing is OSHA compliant.
The Iron Bull Job-Hopper™ is a handy piece of equipment for working on high vertical surfaces, like walls and roof eaves. Also use for loading and lifting roofing shingles or other materials to the roof line.
Converts into a waste container in less than 2 minutes. With the aluminum safety railing and work shelf removed, you now have a trash hopper for roofing debris or end-of-day general worksite clean-up.
