Is my new hydraulic box dumper a stand-alone unit or does it need any kind of bolting or securing to the floor?

Getting Started With A New Hydraulic Box Dumper

The hydraulic box dumper allows one person to deal with loads of up to 6,000 pounds (depending on the load rating) in a hopper or other container appropriate for the box dumper. When you set up your hydraulic box dumper there are a few important things your setup and maintenance crew should know.

  • The frame of the dumper must be anchored to the floor securely according to the instructions in the manual.
  • It is not advisable to use alternative anchoring methods--the frame is designed to handle its rated load with the recommended anchoring scheme.
  • Do not allow your crews to customize the hydraulic box dumper without first consulting the manufacturer--you may void your warranty, create a safety condition or both! Replacement parts must be manufacturer-approved for the same reason.
