Self Dumping Hopper Attachment For Forklifts

By Camille Howe

Self dumping hoppers are designed to fit both standard mast and extendable reach forklifts. Each unit features a pocket base that can accommodate forks up to 10 wide and 2 thick. Easy Rack self-dumping hoppers are construction grade devices designed to withstand continual wear and tear in a fast-paced, heavy-duty construction environment. Unlike cheaper units made from thin sheet metal, our hoppers are made of and 3/16 steel place. This makes them ideal for removing broken up concrete, plaster, brick, particle board, and other debris. Cleanup crews save a great deal of time when they use self-dumping hoppers for any and all tasks related to moving trash from the building site to the dumpster. The simplicity of attaching a hopper to a forklift in a matter of minutes reduces the time it takes to clear the site by the end of the day, and it reduces the risk of injury when workers have to manually haul debris to the dumpster.

Easy Rack self-dumping hoppers are manufactured with several standard features that make them highly versatile and durable. Each unit is made with a safety lock that prevents the hopper from accidentally dumping its contents when it is jostled in route over rugged terrain. Self-dumping hoppers also have a rope release that allows the operator to discharge the units contents when it is elevated. The same rope allows a worker on the ground to empty the unit if necessary. Balance and smooth operability are maintained with a safety chain that binds the hopper to the forklift and keeps it from sliding off the forks. A grab hook keeps the chain out of the way when it is not in use.

You can have your self-dumping hopper further customized through your Easy Rack account manager. Heavy duty casters with 8 diameter polyurethane wheels with roller bearings can be added to the unit. The combination of larger wheels, bearings, and polyurethane itself makes it much easier to push the hopper over a cluttered construction site filled with debris and low-lying obstructions. To ensure maneuverability and ergonomic control of the unit, the rear wheels swivel. Casters are not welded to the unit. They are bolted to the hoppers base instead to allow for quick replacement if they become worn or damaged.

Please be aware that adding this option will require sacrificing some of the hoppers strength. Units with casters lose approximately 4,000 pounds of weight capacity from this customization. Generally, casters are added for light-duty work and should be ordered only after confirming applicability with a professional.

Also, a self-dumping hopper can be transformed from a forklift attachment to a crane extension with a lifting hook welded to each corner of the unit. Shackles can then be added to attach slings to the hooks. Lifting hooks can support both an empty self-dumping hopper and one that is loaded to its full capacity.

Please be aware that hooks are added to these units so they can be moved from high elevations and rooftops to ground crews below. They will not allow the hopper to be discharged while suspended from the crane, and are only a tool for mobility.

Colleges offering admission to displaced New Orleans students/OH-WY

See the discussion page for instructions on adding schools to this list and for an alphabetically arranged listing of schools.

Due to the damage by Hurricane Katrina and subsequent flooding, a number of colleges and universities in the New Orleans metropolitan area will not be able to hold classes for the fall 2005 semester. It is estimated that 75,000 to 100,000 students have been displaced. [1]. In response, institutions across the United States and Canada are offering late registration for displaced students so that their academic progress is not unduly delayed. Some are offering free or reduced admission to displaced students. At some universities, especially state universities, this offer is limited to residents of the area.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia CEO apologies for financial planning scandal

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.

Review Acer Revo 100 With Acer As07b41 Battery

Review Acer Revo 100 With Acer as07b41 battery


computer accessories

The Revo 100 is a home theatre PC; a concept that vendors have had a crack at for many years now, generally with very poor results. Home theatre PCs have been a combination of noisy, ugly, crash prone and generally designed to look more like PCs and less like something you\\’d actually want to have in your living room. If you were very lucky, you might have bought something that looked like an early-1980s VCR, but, for the most part, the home theatre PC concept was one that came with the caveat that you had to like things that looked ugly.

Acer\\’s Revo 100 doesn\\’t look ugly. It\\’s got a slim presence that\\’s somewhat reminiscent of the slimline version of the Sony PlayStation 2, which means that in design terms, we\\’ve at last moved into this century. A bronze bar is the only thing that breaks up the slim black design on the right-hand side, while the left-hand side houses a combo Blu-ray/DVD drive.

Remember when you were young, and a parent or guardian would assure you that looks didn\\’t count, that it was what was inside that did count? It seems as though the Revo designers took that maxim to heart; the Revo 100\\’s innards hide a slide-out control device with a touchscreen panel built in. It works as both the system mouse and the keyboard, with a toggle switch between the two. There\\’s no mouse button, so to right click, you\\’ve got to hold down the touchpad for a few seconds. A button toggle will switch on the very bright touchscreen QWERTY keyboard for text entry. As far as making a great first impression, the Acer aspire one zg5 battery Revo 100 scores highly.


YouTube Preview Image

The Revo 100\\’s innards house an AMD Athlon II Neo K325 1.3GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and a Nvidia ION graphics chip. That\\’s not the most power-packed combination in pure computing terms; realistically, this is more of a home theatre nettop than a home theatre PC. Then again, it\\’s clearly pitched at the living room user rather than the hardcore CAD enthusiast, and that\\’s enough power to play back Blu-ray discs without a problem. At the rear, you\\’ll find two USB 2.0 ports,hp pavilion dv4 battery headphone and microphone sockets, optical audio, HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as a mini-connector for a digital antenna. On the operating system side, it\\’s running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition.


Given its specifications, it should come as no shock that the Revo 100 is ultimately very basic, something that\\’s displayed clearly within its benchmark scores. It managed a score of 1200 in 3DMark06 and 2983 in PCMark05. Of the two scores, the 3DMark score is arguably the more problematic; if part of your home theatre/TV PC concept included gaming, this simply isn\\’t going to cut it.

This isn\\’t to say that Acer hasn\\’t tried to make the Revo 100 pleasant to use. Many of the inbuilt operating system functions have been given a makeover to work well on large-screen HD displays, removing much of the issue of tiny icons that plague most home theatre PCs. Acer\\’s TouchBrowser software makes a decent job of big screen browsing in a mouse sense, but it does highlight the problems with the touchscreen keyboard.

The layout of the touchscreen keyboard is pure QWERTY, but it\\’s cramped in an odd rectangular shape, and there\\’s utterly no feedback beyond a beep for each key press, which means that to type things in, you\\’ve got to be looking down at the keyboard rather than up at the screen. Once you\\’re doing that, you may as well buy a full and more comfortable wireless keyboard. Likewise, for very intermittent mousing, the touchpad works but if you\\’re doing anything that requires frequent accurate clicks, any actual mouse will run rings around it.

This is still a Windows PC, and that does mean that you may be plagued with oddities relating to system updates. We had one Blu-ray movie test aborted, because the Revo 100 decided to reboot for system updates without warning us. To make matters worse, this was an update that failed, leading to a reboot loop that we could only forcefully quit out of by plugging in an external keyboard and mouse.

Likewise, Blu-ray playback worked fairly well in our tests, except for the time that Acer\\’s Clear.Fi playback application inexplicably quit while watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Then again, perhaps Clear.Fi has better taste than we do in movies.


The Revo 100 does a fair job of home theatre PC delivery in a very attractive case, although we\\’d ditch the touchpad quickly for a real wireless mouse and keyboard if we were using it long term. The deal breaker, in our opinion, is the price. At AU$999 it\\’d be reasonable to expect a much more functional PC with better capabilities, instead of what is basically a slightly souped-up nettop-style device. At half the price, it\\’d be an excellent buy, but for this kind of money you could buy a fair laptop with HDMI-out for the times that you really need big-screen PC action alongside, say, a PS3 that\\’ll handle many of the same streaming and Blu-ray playback functions.

English actor Christopher Lee dies aged 93

Saturday, June 13, 2015 

Famed English actor, singer and author Sir Christopher Lee died last Sunday morning in London aged 93, after being admitted to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital for heart failure and respiratory problems. News of his death only became public on Thursday, as his wife of 54 years, Birgit Krøncke Lee, wished first to inform friends and family.

A spokesman for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea confirmed the issuing of his death certificate.

Lee first rose to prominence in the 1950s starring in Hammer Horror films as the classic movie monsters Dracula and Frankenstein and was more recently seen as Saruman the White in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films as well as portraying the villainous Count Dooku in the Star Wars films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

In 2010 Lee released a heavy metal album titled Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross followed by another metal album in 2013, Charlemagne: The Omens of Death and several collections of Heavy Metal cover songs including A Heavy Metal Christmas, A Heavy Metal Christmas Too and Metal Knight.

In 2008 Lee was knighted for services to drama and charity, and in 2001 received a Bafta Fellowship.

Lee is survived by his wife Birgit and daughter Christina.

This mountain stage started in Andorra La Vella and led back and forth through the valleys and over the passes of the small Pyrenees country. Though the distance was only 138 km, the race was said to be very demanding. Six classified climbs totalling 4,950 meters couple with and 3,960 metres of descending to leave hardly any flat passages. Joaquin Rodríguez called the route “dramatic”. His improvement on the overall classification he worked out to leadership on Monday.Chris Froome previously predicted it would be the “the hardest stage ever”. During the stage he was getting injured in a crash which caused him to end the season and give up on his start at the world championship.
