If you are on the market for an industrial hopper, the prices vary depending on whether you want a light duty or heavy duty hopper or if you want a self dumping hopper, stackable hopper or towable hopper. Sometimes, but not always, hoppers that hold more will cost you more. According to beacontechnology.com, a portable steel hopper or parts hopper will run you around $500 to $600; self dumping hoppers $450 to $900; self dumping steel hoppers $500 to $2,500; and towable hoppers around $2,000. Specialty hoppers such as steel chute hoppers famous for their compact size perfect for areas with limited space will run you around $1,000.
