A range of Base Emptying Bins / Stillages designed for collecting, moving and safely dumping factory waste whilst utilizing your forklift truck. Available in Manual and Automatic release. BDB and ADB.

Specification Sheet for the base emptying skip pictured above.

This particular range of dumping containers is fully automatic in operation, requiring no wires, pulleys or dangerous climbing. The entire operation of dumping the container's waste is carried out safely from within the cab of the forklift.

The base of the Base Emptying Stillages automatically re-lock when lowered to the ground.

For stacking and storage capabilities, where space may be at a premium, all Base Emptying Stillages come supplied with pallet feet (Castors can also be supplied as an alternative).

Manufactured from 2 mm steel side plates and 3 mm steel baseplates, the fully automatic dumping boxes offer a robust and practical waste handling solution and a great alternative to the conventional forklift tipping skip.

With a mild steel construction, the dumping containers can come supplied in a variety of colours to help with your waste segregation, and like all our forklift attachments, come supplied fully tested and certified for compliance with the latest Health & Safety Regulations.

The Manual Base emptying bins or stillages are shown below, along with a video showing how easy they are to operate and data sheets on both models.
