What is the difference between a Tipping Skip - Heavy Duty & Forklift Self-Tipping Skips?
Heavy duty tipping skips are manufactured using 5mm thick mild steel, whereas the Forklift Self-Tipping Skips are manufactured using 3mm thick mild steel. This makes the heavy duty tipping skip more durable. The forklift self-tipping skips have re-enforced edges, that are folded back on themselves to give the skip greater strength. This is not needed for the heavier duty skip, which have simple folded edges instead.
What is the difference between a Forklift Tipping Skip & a Telehandler Tipping Skip?
Our heavy-duty forklift tipping skips & forklift-self tipping skips are designed to be lifted and tipped using a forklift. They are fitted with safety chains, which are secured to the forklift. They sit on a pivot and once the latch is released on the back of the tipping skip they roll forward emptying their contents. They are then self-righted and the latch secures them back into place. In comparison the telehandler tipping skip is designed to work on a telehandler. As such there is no need for a tipping mechanism, spring or safety chain. Instead the telehandler fork enter the telehandler skip and the gas strut on the back of the telehandler tipping skip automatically locks the skip to the forks. The contents of a telehandler tipping skip are emptied, not by the skip rolling forward, but instead by the telehandler tipping the entire skip by leaning forward.
Telehandler tipping skips are becoming increasingly popular on building sites where telehandlers are present. This is because with a forklift tipping skip the driver has to step out of the forklift in order to release the tipping latch and this creates a potential health and safety hazard if not monitored correctly. In comparison as the telehandler physically tips the entire telehandler tipping skip, there is no need for the telehandler operator to ever leave the safety of their cab.
