Safely empty heavy, free-flowing waste into high-sided skips or hoppers, without the need for heavy lifting with the Big Brute Suck & Dump.

These machines can be wheeled around site on their 4-wheeled trolleys. Their trolleys have built-in forklift sockets so you can raise the whole Big Brute up and move it over to your waste skip. Open the quick-release flap on the base and your waste is discharged quickly and without mess into your skip. Ideal for recycling material into process hoppers.

We offer 2 models: the Flat Base and the Cone Base. The Flat Base is an entry-level model ideal for use where cross-contamination isn’t critical as some waste product can remain within the drum. The Cone Base model, with its angled hopper base, empties completely and is ideal for processing free-flowing waste where preventing cross-contamination is more critical.

Both models use the same accessories and options as the Big Brute Popular and Warehouseman.

Choose your Big Brute Power Unit Voltage

All electrically powered Big Brutes can be supplied with either a 230V power unit or a 110V power unit.

They both have 3 motors providing a total of 3.2kW of cleaning power.

Check which one is most suitable for your premises.

230V 16A Plug


230V Big Brute power units have 3 motors giving a total of 3.2kW of cleaning power.

It runs from a single-phase, 16A supply.

Note that the 230V Big Brute power unit has a 16A plug, so you’ll need a 16A supply to power it.

No 16A supply? No problem – use with a Big Brute 16A-to-13A adapter lead (Part No V1337) to run it from a standard 13A socket.

110V 32A Plug


110V Big Brute power units have 3 motors giving a total of 3.2kW of cleaning power.

It runs from a single-phase, 32A supply.

Note that the 110V Big Brute power unit has a 32A plug, so you’ll need a 32A supply on your transformer to run it.

Choose your Big Brute Power Unit Type

All Big Brute power units provide that famous Big Brute suction power. With 3 independently switched motors, you get powerful suction that will let you clean up with long, long hoses, without loss of suction.

The Big Brute Suck & Blow power unit harnesses all the suction power to blow dust and dirt away. Switch from suck to blow in seconds.

Both power unit types are available in 230V or 110V versions.

Suck Only

The Suck Only power unit does just that - sucks. But sucks well!

Our standard Big Brute power units come with 3 motors giving a total of 3.2kW of suction power.

Available in 230V or 110V versions.

Suck & Blow

Our Suck & Blow power unit has the same motors and suction power as the Standard Suck Only power unit.

However, the filtered air is directed through an exhaust port on the top of the power unit.

Simply push your suction hose onto the exhaust port to harness the Big Brute's 3.2kW of cleaning power in a continuous blast of air.

Ideal for dislodging dust and dirt from crevices or ledges.

Switch from suck to blow in seconds - and back again. Use your Big Brute's suction power to then suck up dirt and debris blown out.

Available in 230V or 110V versions.

Because forklifts come in different sizes, your Suck & Dump trolley can be built in a size to accommodate your tines perfectly.

Just measure:

  • The centre-to-centre distance between your tines (A)
  • The width of your tines (B)
  • The height of your tines (C)

And choose the appropriate size tines for your trolley.

  • Standard Tines (ST)
  • Wide Tines (WT)

Hose length options

Big Brute Standard Dry Suction Hose

Big Brute Standard Dry Suction Hose is 63mm diameter – wider than most industrial vacuum cleaner hose so it won’t block or kink easily.

It’s made from PVC with with a black outer with reinforcing threads, and supported by a helical PVC-coated wire.

It has an operating temperature of -20°C to 70°C and a weight of 0.5kg per metre.

Available in 3, 5, 10, or 15m lengths. Join multiple lengths together with a coupler to get even further reach.

Or, available supplied with 2 lengths of hose – one 5m length and one 10m length, each with one straight coupler on one end, and a curved coupler on the other, and a hose joiner to join the lengths together. This gives you the flexibility of shorter lengths for cleaning in confined spaces and the ability to join the lengths to reach further.

Drum Options

Big Brute Drum Options let you tailor your Big Brute to your exact needs.

Make it quick, easy and clean to shake your filters with the Filter Shaker. Or add a removable internal spigot to make it easy to slide out waste in our tough disposable waste bags. Or even add a Dust Extraction port for when you want to remove dust from your machinery or processes with your Big Brute.

Big Brute drum options must be specified at the time of purchase.

Filter Shaker

The Big Brute Filter Shaker makes it easy to keep your filters clean.

As you clean up, dust and dirt cake themselves onto your filter - that's its job.

But as you carry on cleaning, the dust and dirt on the filter can reduce the airflow, slowing your cleaning down.

Regularly shaking your filters clean can speed up your cleaning once again.

The optional Big Brute Filter Shaker lets you clean your Big Brute Primary Filter quickly and cleanly without having to remove the power unit.

Just grab the handle on the front of the drum and give it a good shake.

Within seconds, your filter will be clean again, returning your suction power to its full level.

Note: Drums with the Filter Shaker option are not compatible with the Easy Empty Lift-Out Spigot drum option, or any the accessories that work with the Easy Empty Lift-Out Spigot such as Disposable Waste Bags and the Easy Empty Lift-Out Bag.

Big Brute Dust Extraction Kit

If you’ve got hand tools, or a process that generates a lot of dust, remove it at source using your Big Brute and the optional Dust Extraction Drum Option.

Big Brutes with the Dust Extraction Kit drum option have an additional 127mm-diameter inlet spigot mounted on the side of the drum. It also includes 2 bungs to seal off either the small or large entry spigot when not in use.

The Dust Extraction Kit drum option allows you to connect a wide-diameter hose (sold separately) to the large spigot. This provides high-volume, low air-speed extraction which is ideal for removing dust from the air at source.

It’s ideal for short sanding or rubbing-down jobs, or stone cutting.

Seal off the large spigot and use your Big Brute for general cleaning up afterwards.

While the Big Brute Dust Extraction Kit ideal for short activities, we don’t recommend your Big Brute is used for continuous dust extraction.
