How much will a hydraulic box dumper cost?

Hydraulic Box Dumper Prices

A hydraulic box dumper allows one person to quickly and efficiently tilt and dump materials that weigh up to 6,000 pounds in a hopper or other container. The hydraulic box dumpers are square shaped receptacles with a chute either on the side or the bottom. They are also called "tipsters." These machines are very helpful when emptying the loaded boxes, containers and crates common in factories and warehouses.

So how much will one of these machines cost you? According to beacontechnology.com, a hydraulic box dumper will cost between $5,000 and $7,000, depending on its lift capacity. Companies who sell these products claim the machines pay for themselves because they:

  • Reduce material handling man hours
  • Lower operating costs
  • Eliminate mechanical down time
If you can't buy the machinery outright, look for companies that will allow you to lease the machinery. If you don't want to pay full price, check out online auction sites such as eBay.com where you'll find used hydraulic box dumpers listed for less than $5,000. Or do an online search for used material handling machinery and check out Web sites such as 1800miti.com and thomasnet.com.
