Why Choose a Forklift Tipping Skip?

  • Reliable and Cost-Effective: Forklift tipping skips offer a proven waste management solution for worksites heavily reliant on forklifts. Their straightforward design ensures reliability and ease of maintenance.
  • Versatile Waste Handling: Ideal for a variety of waste materials on construction and industrial sites. Easily transport and dispose of debris, scrap, and other materials.
  • Enhanced Site Safety: While requiring manual latch release, the self-righting feature of HERMEQ's forklift tipping skips significantly reduces the risk of accidents or spills during the tipping process.

Forklift Tipping Skips

HERMEQ heavy-duty forklift tipping skips provide a reliable and efficient waste management solution for worksites using forklifts. They feature a robust design with safety chains, a tipping mechanism, and a self-righting feature for secure operation. To empty contents, the forklift operator releases a latch, causing the skip to tilt forward.

Telehandler Tipping Skips

HERMEQ telehandler tipping skips are engineered for seamless integration with telehandlers, offering enhanced safety and workflow efficiency. They feature an automatic gas strut locking mechanism that securely attaches them to the telehandler forks. Unlike forklift skips, the telehandler tipping skip is emptied by the telehandler's tilting motion, eliminating the need for the operator to ever leave the cab.

HERMEQ: Your Source for Safe & Efficient Site Equipment

HERMEQ is committed to providing innovative waste management solutions that prioritise safety and productivity. Whether you require traditional forklift tipping skips or the advanced features of our telehandler tipping skips, we have the right solution to optimise your worksite.
