Simpro Handling Equipment


High-capacity comb hitch bin lifter.


Hiflow is a heavy-duty bin lifter from Simpro, with huge throughput capacity and a patent-pending mechanical comb hitch to suit 240L, 660L and 1100L bins. It is designed as a plug-and-play replacement for the bin lifters that are often built into high-volume waste processing equipment, such as compactors and balers. The Hiflow bin lift offers machinery OEMs lower costs, higher reliability, better safety and Simpro’s trusted bin lifting expertise.

The Hiflow can quickly dump large four-wheeled bins weighing up to 600kg, and unlike traditional fixed-pivot lifts, it can be built to empty bins at any height. The patent-pending comb hitch system lifts all common waste bins, and avoids placing large stresses onto the plastic bin comb. With no actuators and just three moving parts, the comb hitch system also offers dramatically reduced cost, complexity and maintenance.

The Hiflow features an extra-heavy-guage steel frame, guarding and doors, and a standardised control interface for seamless integration with all types of bulk waste processing equipment.

With a Simpro Hiflow, you can focus on what you’re good at. We’ll empty the bins into it.
