Choosing the Right Bin Tipper
Maybe you work in a food production plant. You might supervise a high school cafeteria. Maybe you're in manufacturing, or warehousing, or shipping. No matter what industry you represent, you have one material handling task in common with all the others: emptying containers.
Every business generates trash, recycling, compost, or other solid waste. Usually, that waste goes into a trash bin, which in turn goes into a dumpster for final disposal. But lifting waste receptacles by hand is a perfect storm of ergonomic risks, which can seriously injure your staff.
Protect your employees while speeding up common material handling tasks with Simpro Bin Tippers, available from Solus Group. Bin Tippers are an innovation in material handling; rather than simply lifting, pushing, or transporting loads, these machines elevate high-capacity containers, then tilt them at a 45 degree angle (tighter angles are available on request), safely pouring out contents without shifting the machine's center of gravity.
So which model is right for your operation? With four to choose from, there's an option to meet any application, workforce, and price point.
A Bin Tipper for General Applications
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has identified five conditions that increase the risk of injury during manual material handling tasks. These include twisting the body, lifting heavy loads, and frequent or awkward reaching. Emptying a garbage can involves all three.
At the same time, if you only dump out a few bins per day, you probably want to limit costs on lifting equipment as much as possible. The Ezi-MT Manual Bin Tipper is the device for you. With this model, staff can lift and tip loads of up to 140 pounds (65 kg) with the simple turn of a wheel. They don’t bear any of the weight themselves, so ergonomic risks are eliminated.
The Ezi-MT is ideal for any small business, from restaurants to schools to busy office buildings.
Hydraulic Lifting and Emptying Power for High-Capacity Containers
The Ezi-MT's winch-powered action is easy to operate, but if you empty more than a few bins per day — or if your materials weigh up to 330 pounds (150 kg) — you'll want the power of robust hydraulics.
Multi-Tip® Bin Tippers are strong enough for recycling centers and other waste-handling operations, but their no-frills design places them well within the price range of small and medium-sized businesses in any industry.
Like every mechanical dumper from Simpro, the Multi-Tip® is equipped with heavy duty casters for easy positioning. These machines aren't just for emptying the trash, either. Choose a custom cradle to handle anything from oil drums to vegetable crates — or anything else you need emptied.
Industrial Material Handling for Bins and Drums
When you're moving hundreds of pounds of materials — whether that's scrap metal or frozen meat — you need machinery that can get the job done as quickly as possible. Dumpmaster® Bin Tippers feature hydraulic lifting power with heavy duty components for loads up to 660 pounds (300 kg).
If you handle dangerous substances, optional Operator Guards will protect users from any risk of splashing or spillage. And just like the Multi-Tip®, you can add a custom cradle to fit your application perfectly.
All three of these options are readily available from Solus Group. If you need even greater power, for super-heavy duty material handling, ask about the customizable MegaDumper® from Simpro. These rugged machines lift and empty more than 1,650 pounds (750 kg) of whatever you need moved, and there are lots of powerful optional features available.
No matter what you need to empty, Simpro Bin Tippers can do the job. Enjoy a safer, more efficient operation with these innovative material handling devices today.
