A construction grade hopper is built to handle refuse from building and masonry projects, including broken blocks, concrete, and brick debris.While most hoppers are sold with optional casters, transporting a construction grade hopper is best done with a forklift because of the weight of the material in the hopper. It's simply bad ergonomics to try to push a loaded hopper over terrain (or even concrete) when a forklift will do the job much faster and with a higher degree of safety. When transporting construction grade hoppers over terrain, operators should always use a safety chain and "grab hook" to prevent the hopper from slipping off the forklift.
