Dockmaster™ Series

Safely empty bins from a raised platform.


Simpro Dockmaster, showing the low tip height and safety feet to prevent falling off dock edges

The Dockmaster was designed with a specific task in mind - safely tipping wheelie bins and drums from a raised loading dock. In many operations this is currently done by hand, which is difficult, slow and dangerous. The Dockmaster completes the process in seconds and is fully compliant with stringent new safety requirements.

The Dockmaster is based on the proven design of the Simpro Dumpmaster, but with unique features. The tipping mechanism inverts bins as low to the ground as possible, at just 700mm, while still keeping the weight within the footprint of the machine. To allow operating near platform edges the Dockmaster is fitted with safety feet, just behind the wheels. These catch the machine if it is rolled over the edge, instantly preventing further movement.

The Dockmaster is built to the same rugged specifications as the Dumpmaster, including the steel frame, powerpack and control system. It will effortlessly tip most types of wheelie bin at weights up to 250kg, and is designed to withstand many years of operation indoors or outdoors.
