Hapman’s new Low-Clearance Bulk Bag Unloader is engineered to operate in low-ceiling facilities where standard unloaders won’t fit or are difficult to use. Wherever a forklift has trouble maneuvering against a ceiling for bag change outs, the Low-Clearance Bulk Bag Unloader can be safely and easily moved into place. Because other models require forklift operators to raise the top section several inches over the base to balance it on corner posts while visually obstructed by the bulk bag, Hapman engineers designed a patent-pending slide rail configuration that’s easy to assemble and requires no additional headroom. Integrated UHMW-lined troughs with fork guides permit operators to accurately glide the sections into position. Sturdy slide rails on the base wrap around the I-beam glides, securely holding them in place for increased safety during assembly and operation. Features include: a lower profile configuration that is shorter than standard bulk bag unloaders; a dual section design engineered with fork pockets in the bottom of the upper section for minimal forklift clearance; sturdy slide rails on the base that wrap around I-beam glides to prevent slippage and tipping; UHMW-lined troughs with fork guides allow for quick and easy assembly with minimal change out time and effort.
