MARSHALL, IN – Self-dumping material handling hoppers fabricated by Iron Bull Manufacturing, a new company headquartered in Marshall, IN, come with full refund guarantees and are equipped with a proprietary Positive Alignment System featuring a Tapered Slide Box with expanded clearance angles for fast, accurate entry of forktruck forks into hopper base channels.

“Tapered angles make the operator’s job easier, allowing insertion of forks into enlarged base channel entry spaces on the first try, eliminating time-consuming forktruck maneuvering and manual corrections of fork heights,” said Emanuel King, Iron Bull CEO. “They also help prevent dings and dents to hoppers caused by up or down fork misalignment.”

Iron Bull produces three series of hoppers – Economy Bull, Baby Bull and Big Bull – with weight capacities ranging from 1,500 pounds to 6,000 pounds and 1/3 to 2-1/2 cubic yards capacities for manufacturing, machining, construction, agriculture, storage and waste collection and recycling markets. Hoppers customized to customer specifications also are available.

Engineered with structural integrity for rugged, long-term service, all hoppers are strengthened by wrap-around welded lips on back corners, sides extended below hopper bottoms, full-length channel bases, and gussets welded into front corners.

“Iron Bull hoppers are among the toughest and most durable in the industry, built to perform reliably for many years in the most demanding environments, from receiving and transporting heavy loads of steel and wood in factories, to receiving and discharging construction debris at job sites, to picking up trash at apartment complexes,” King said.

“Sales are backed by guarantees that provide full refunds on units returned within 15 days of purchases, the only hopper company in the U. S. offering these terms, according to our research.”

Iron Bull dual safety lock package includes manual flip lock and retaining chain that hooks onto hoppers, keeping contents intact when stationary and fastening onto forktruck lift masts during transit and dumping, stabilizing loads to prevent accidental sliding or spillage.

An optional Dump From Seat latch rope provides added safety, allowing operators to remain seated while releasing loads rather than leaving forktrucks to manually discharge them. Hopper safety decals are in English and Spanish as are operating instructions.

Optional casters enable hoppers to move quickly around factory floors without the need for forktrucks and accompanying fuel expenses.

Iron Bull Material Handling Hoppers range from $597 for the smallest Economy Bull to $1,597 for the largest Big Bull, and can be ordered directly or through distributors.
