Forklift Self-Dump Buckets - Star Industries


Turn your forklift into a loader with the Star Industries Self-Dump bucket

The bucket installs in minutes and is the perfect solution for loading loose material. No modification to the forklift is required. A hydraulic dump option is also available.

Manual Self-Dump Buckets

No modifications or hydraulics required. Simply slide the bucket on the forks and insert the pins to lock it on. The bucket can be tripped with the handle at the back of the bucket or from the operator’s seat with the remote rope release. Lowering the bucket to the ground resets the bucket for the next load. The safety lock prevents accidental tripping of the bucket release during transport.

Hydraulic Self-Dump Buckets

The Hydraulic self-dump bucket provides precise control of the discharge. Hydraulic flow from the forklift is required (hydraulic control valve not included). If the forklift is equipped with a hydraulic side shift, flow from that valve can typically be diverted to the bucket cylinder.

Designed for 48" forks

The universal, slip-on-the-fork model can be used with any make and model of extendable-reach forklift that is equipped with standard 48” long forks. The bucket slides on to the forks and secured with pins behind the heel. Because the forks and carriage remain on the forklift, there’s less chance of damage or loss to the forks. This design features a deeper bucket, making transport of irregular shaped loads easier.

  • Accepts forks up to 7" wide x 2 ½" thick x 48" long
  • Positive locking system keeps bucket secured to forks
  • Chain & Grab Hook wraps around carriage as a secondary safety measure
  • Bucket approx. 51" deep
