Solus Group Introduces New Product: The Dockmaster Bin Tipper
Solus Group Introduces New Product: The Dockmaster Bin Tipper

2017-07-11

    ST. LOUIS, MO, July 11, 2017 — Solus Group, a leading online provider of warehouse equipment and battery handling solutions, has added a new model to its innovative selection of Bin Tippers. This one is designed specifically for use on loading docks. Most Simpro Bin Tippers, available from Solus Group, lift trash cans and bins before emptying them. They’re designed to clear the lip of a hopper or dumpster. The Dockmaster shares the super-stable lift-and-tip action of its predecessors, but it’s meant to empty wheelie trash bins from docks into containers below. For this reason, it keeps bins as close to the unit’s base as possible. Like other models of Bin Tippers, the Dockmaster’s unique design keeps shifting loads firmly within the base’s footprint for unparalleled stability during use. “We find that the more specialized the material handling equipment is to its task, the safer and easier that task becomes,” said Jennifer...
