Bottom-dump bucket
What is a bottom-dump bucket?
Bottom-dump buckets are used:
(1)For collecting scraps generated in various plants of steelmaking works
(2)For collecting waste generated in dismantling sites
(3)For collecting lightweight cutting chips and heavy scraps
Various types of buckets are available according to application.

Conventionally, when reloading the content such as scrap of a bucket to a vehicle or a vessel, the bucket was turned upside down as a general method. In this method, because an operator must come near the bucket, there have been some accidents such that an operator gets pinched between bucket and loading platform, a released hook hits an operator, or an operator injures his hand when changing hooks. To solve those problems and also to realize the safest and most labor-saving device, our bottom-dump buckets have the following features.

Open and close by one finger touch
Smooth opening or closing operation is possible only by setting or releasing the lock pin.

Safe and labor saving
Because of no need of climbing up to truck loading platform and come down, an operator can enjoy safety and labor saving.
Because the bucket opens slowly, there is less flying of contents.

Reduction of working time by one-person operation
Because of no need of changing wire when the bucket is turned upside down, one-person operation is possible, reducing the working time significantly.
