About Tilt Trucks

Utility tilt hoppers are counterbalanced for smooth, controlled dumping of debris and other materials. Our used tilt hoppers have an angled front designed for easy dumping. Made from a sturdy thick plastic, tilt hoppers will not dent, corrode, or absorb moisture. Wheels and axles are inset to prevent damage to the hopper and the building. ASI’s used utility tilt hoppers are made by Rubbermaid, and come in various duty levels, including utility, standard, and heavy duties, capable of handling a variety of capacities based on your needs.

Used tilt trucks made from high density plastic are more than capable of satisfying your application requirements. Plastic hopper tilt trucks easily allows one person to handle miscellaneous type waste and refuse removal. Finding the right tilt truck for you depends primarily on the size and weight of the loads you are looking to carry inside of the manual tilt hopper. Sizes available include 1/2 cu. yd, 1 cu. yd, 1 1/2 cu. yd., 2 cu. yd, and 2 1/2 cu. yd. tilt trucks.

Depending on the size of the material you're trying to carry, you may need a large tilt truck to handle a larger load. The next feature to consider would be the weight of the material you are looking to carry. You may need to consider a heavy-duty tilt truck for carrying heavier loads, but a utility-grade tilt truck is a lower capacity option that may be useful for mail sorting applications. Tilt Trucks are balanced for tilting and emptying with minimum effort. A good choice and inexpensive.

All of our used tilt trucks are tested and inspected prior to shipping to ensure that all functions are working properly. Contact a member of our sales team to learn more about our current inventory of used tilt trucks, as well as our full selection of used hoppers by calling (800) 876-3736 or request a quote online.

Advantages of Tilt Trucks

  • Efficient material handling: Tilt trucks enable efficient and ergonomic material handling. Their tilting mechanism allows users to easily load and unload heavy or bulky items without the need for manual lifting.

The wheels and casters attached to the bottom of the truck make it easy to maneuver in tight spaces or across various surfaces, including smooth floors or rough terrains.

This is particularly beneficial in warehouses, storage areas, or other facilities where space optimization is essential.
