Our customer came to us with an existing dumper that was in poor condition, over the years we have perfected the design, upgraded weak points, and introduced safety measures for the operators.
They are used to dump 4’ x 4’ boxes of Cucumbers, Peppers & misc fresh vegetables. We introduced a series of small spikes to re-enforce the produce boxes from slipping, a pocket in the rear that the skid slips under and two latches holding the produce totes in place while dumping.
This helped to reduce cardboard and pieces of wood skid from dropping into the hoppers/ conveyors heading to processing.
We also contracted with a local electrical contractor to supply a New Style control panel with a Hand Control Whip that plugs into the customer standard 480-volt welding outlets at the plant.
