The contents can be emptied out using the simple lever mechanism into buckets, bags or troughs. The galvanised split lid opens from the centre and each half slides down to the edge maximising the filling capability. The lid protects against vermin and weather damage. Telescopic legs are built into the leg mounts which allow you to raise the discharge chute 80cm or 100cm off the ground allowing you to fill buckets or barrows easily. Integrated bagging hooks enable you to fill up to half ton bags if required. The legs can be bolted in place making the Tote Bin a fixed item. An optional weather pack provides additional protection from the rain by creating a watertight seal on the lid and rubber brushes on the top of the bin body to prevent rain from blowing under the lid.
