To operate;

  • Position the forks the correct distance apart to locate into fork pockets.
  • Remove fork pocket heel pins from skip.
  • Drive forks into the fork pockets.
  • Insert fork pocket heel pins directly behind the heel of the fork and attach safety lynch pin into the hole provided.
  • Take the bottom empty skip to the yard skip and position the actuator plates (on the rear of the skip base) over the side of the yard skip.
  • With the mast vertical lower the actuator plates onto the side of the yard skip and to activate the release hooks.
  • Keeping the mast vertical, lift the carriage of the forklift truck so as the drop bottom door clears the side of the yard skip and reverse clear.
  • Lower the skip to the ground to automatically re-latch the drop bottom door – some forward tilt may be required dependent on site conditions.

Galvanised Roll Forward Skips

Also, available in a painted version to save costs.

This brand new galvanised forklift tipping bin has never been used and comes with a hot-dipped galvanised finish, making the skips ideally suited for when working in corrosive environments or where corrosive waste is being put into the skip.

Manufactured with a regular duty 3 mm thick steel body and heavy-duty underframe, the tipping bin is the perfect solution to waste handling when non-corrosive properties are required.

Emptying of the forklift skip contents is carried out by a simple-to-operate release mechanism, which when activated, allows the tip skip to roll forward and empty.

  • Manufactured from mild steel with a hot dipped Galvanised finish, offering non-corrosive properties
  • Regular duty 3 mm thick steel tipping bin ensures strong, durable properties
  • Full width release handles to eliminate the need to have to lean in between the skip and the truck mast for tipping
  • Heavy-duty steel under frames to ensure long service life properties
  • Twin locking mechanisms for added safety to ensure safe locking when skips are loaded unevenly
  • Pre-drilled castor plates to allow retro fitment of castors if need be (no on-site welding required)
  • Safety security chains ensure skips are safely retained to the lift truck without risk of slipping off the truck forks
  • Pull cord fixing points to both left and right-hand sides, allows easy retro fitment if required
  • Bolted tipping handle assembly allows easy replacement if required (no welding required)
  • 'CE' marked and supplied with Certificate of Conformity to meet Health & Safety Regulations
