Anatomy Of The Skip Bin

For years and years people have loaded debris into trucks by hand or used various machines that would not load them accurately or efficiently due to their height. With the need to load and haul garbage in a variety of different situations posed by the modern world the Steel Cargo hauling beast known as the ‘skip bin’ or ‘rubbish skip’ was born. A look at its construction reveals how this simple but effective design has changed the trash hauling industry, made it more cost effective, and in turn made a lot of home-owners and labourers lives a lot easier.

Skip Bins can trace their design ancestry back to the old coal mining days. The trapezoidal box design of the old coal hauling rail cars in the mines is very reminiscent of today’s modern Skip Bin design. As with every design it changes slightly over the years but its basic task as a rugged, easy to load hauler remains the same. The bottom of the Bin is made of sturdy 4 millimetre thick structural steel plate and reinforced by an additional Parallel Flange Channel Steel sub frame. The sides are 3 millimetre thick structural steel which is reinforced by additional side stiffening plates. The heavy durable side plates and floor are then assembled together by a strong contiguous mig weld. The addition of a steel top frame only adds to its strength and provides a flat smooth surface for which to place a cover to keep debris from coming out while transporting.old coal hauling rail cars in the mines is very reminiscent of today’s modern Skip Bin design.

How does this durable solid steel box frame link to being easy to load on a truck, unload and haul? The secret is in the solid forged lift pins and tipping pins that are attached to the skip bin. The heavy duty pins which are strategically placed around the bin make it easy to securely hook a chain to the bin with which they can pull the rubbish container onto the bed of the truck for transporting. Once on the truck the Skip Bin is then secured to the tipping pin so the bin does not move or fall off while the transport vehicle uses its hydraulics to tilt upward and dump the load.

Another design feature which aids in their use is heavy duty steel bin spacers. These are placed around the outside of the skip bin so when they are stacked they do not stick together and this makes for easy storage for the bin provider. Stacked bins take up much less space than other forms of disposal equipment.

All these features result in a proven product that makes rubbish disposal easier and more cost efficient. Because of this design the Skip Bin will be a durable and proven work asset for a long time to come.
