Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Dump Dolly™?

A Dump Dolly™ is much like any other heavy duty two-wheel dolly or hand truck and is used for many of the same tasks. You move things around with them. Whether it be commercial, residential or industrial, two wheel dollies have been a useful tool for many years and will be for many more years to come. What makes Dump Dolly™ different? It has an added feature that no other hand truck has. This added feature will greatly assist the process of emptying a large garbage container into a dumpster or even onto the bed of a trailer.

With Dump Dolly™, the garbage container sits on a rolling carriage mounted on low maintenance roller bearings. This setup gives you the ability to slide your trash container up to just above the mouth of the dumpster where it locks in place, making it easier to simply tilt and dump the contents of the container into the dumpster. This makes the entire dumping process a lot safer, easier and puts a lot less strain on your body. It is a much better and safer way to manage “that” lift.

Dump Dolly is a can dumping device designed to lift and dump without need for manual lifting thus reducing the ergonomic hazard associated with manual dumping. By eliminating the manpower required it also eliminates the unnecessary twisting, bending, and lifting of manual trash material dumping – all of which NIOSH and OSHA recognize as high-risk activities for Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD)

What is a Dump Dolly™ made of?

Dump Dolly™ is constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum. The 15-1/2 inch all-welded aluminum frame is built with two reinforced aluminum “C” channel rails with four welded aluminum cross members.
