Custom Self-Dumping Hopper JescoHuskyDumper

Customize Your New Self-Dumping Hopper

It’s important to choose the right products for your business. Jesco® is proud to produce quality custom products for our customers, including custom versions of our self-dumping hopper, the JescoHuskyDumper®.

But what is a self-dumping hopper? And what kinds of customizations are available to benefit your business?

What Is a Self-Dumping Hopper?

Our all-welded self-dumping hoppers are built to handle bulk materials and scrap left over from the manufacturing process. The JescoHuskyDumper can dump itself, right itself, and lock itself when operated by a forklift.

How does it work? We use a locking handle that, when tripped, will cause the hopper to dump. Once the hopper is empty, it will automatically return to an upright, locked position. The safety retaining chain and trip rope are stored on the back of the hopper when not in use.

If you order a JescoHuskyDumper, you can count on the following standard features:

  • Safety retaining chain
  • Remote trip rope assembly
  • Safety latch
  • Safety labels
  • Vista green color

What Kinds of Custom Features Are Available?

All of our JescoHuskyDumpers are self-dumping, but what other customization options are available to you? Let’s run through a list of our optional features so you can decide which ones meet your company’s manufacturing needs.


Do you want to be able to use your new self-dumping hopper throughout your manufacturing floor? Our casters allow you to roll your hopper around so you can use it for multiple purposes. Certain hoppers require a special base in order to add casters; otherwise, we’ll weld the casters directly to the base of your hopper. 

Our casters come in a variety of materials, including:

  • Semi-steel
  • Phenolic
  • Polyurethane
  • Moldon rubber

By adding casters, you can quite literally get more mileage out of your self-dumping hopper by rolling it wherever it’s most needed.

Glass Recycling Hood

Glass shards are dangerous to have on your manufacturing floor. Consider adding a glass recycling hood to your self-dumping hopper. These hoods are great for recycling centers as well as for solar and glass manufacturing facilities. We can manufacture these to order so they’ll be exactly what your company needs.


Do you need to meet certain environmental regulations or insurance codes? We offer lids for our JescoHuskyDumpers so you can do just that. You can order a type A lid, in which the front half opens only, or a type C lid, in which both halves open. 

False Bottoms

Will you use your self-dumping hopper for processes that use lubricating or cooling fluids? Will you need to separate shavings or solids from liquids? You may want to consider adding a false bottom to your JescoHuskyDumper.

We manufacture false bottoms to use in conjunction with a drain plug or a drain gate valve (sold separately). They’re also made so you can easily clean under the false bottom. 

Color Options

Interested in something other than vista green? We’ve got you covered. We can paint your self-dumping hopper in one of these other color options:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • OSHA blue
  • Light gray
  • Dark gray
  • Black

Other Customization Options

We also offer other optional features, including:

  • Outrigger base
  • 3-way entry
  • Bolt on casters
  • Left hand release
  • Gate valve
  • Drain plug
  • Drain hole
  • Lifting lugs
  • 100% watertight
