Lubricate Hopper Walls for Slick Dumping

Skip Kintz of Overland Power Sweeping shared this idea.

To me it's always seemed to be a continual problem getting all of the trash to dump easily from the hopper. I recently hit upon a solution, however, that works very 'slick.'


What I do is to spray a kitchen lubricant such as Pam onto the sidewalls of the hopper. Dumping is now a snap, because it all just slides out and I'm ready to go again. It also helps keep things from sticking to the screen.

By the way, I tried several other sprays, including silicone. The kitchen pan lubricants not only cost less, but seem to last the longest time.

Have an idea that would be helpful to others in the industry? Please let us know what it is.
