Front (Pick up Side) and Rear Walls: Containers to have 10 gauge steel.
Side Walls and Bottoms: Containers to have 10 gauge steel walls and 10 gauge steel bottoms.
Skids: Container bottoms to be fitted with two capped skids of 3" formed structural channel. Skids shall be skip welded to container bottom extending from pickup wall to rear wall. Skids to be positioned approximately 12" in from side of container.
Double Plate: Container bottom to be fitted with four 10 gauge steel double plates approximately 8" x 8" continuously welded to container bottom equally spaced.
Front Wall Bumper Plates: Containers to have bumper plates constructed of minimum 1/4" steel, approximately 9" x 15", and shall be positioned so the bumper plate extends approximately 1/2" in front of the cylinder and even with the sleeve.

Pick Up Sleeves: Container sleeves to be constructed of a minimum 10 gauge steel. Dimensions of the sleeves to be approximately 9" x 4" x 27". Sleeves shall be continuously welded to container so that front of sleeve is 6" from front of container. Gussets shall be 1/4" steel on each end of sleeve.
Lids: Containers shall have well fitted center split (front to rear) polyethylene lids hinged so as to allow them to lay flat. When lids are closed, they shall meet in the center with sufficient clearance to eliminate binding.
Lid Construction: Each lid to be rotationally molded in one piece from high density cross-linked polyethylene (Marlex CL-100 or equivalent). Carbon black material color and material thickness of minimum 1/8" for single walled lids and minimum 1/16" for double walled lids shall be used throughout lid construction. Each lid shall have integrally molded and reinforced hinged designed to accept 1/2" diameter round hinge rod.
Welding: All side and bottom seams shall be continuously welded to form a completely water tight container
Material Standards All steel will be new and of
commercial quality. Gauges shall meet A.I.S.I.

Advantages of the Modern
Replacement cost for lids and bottoms of Modern's POURSTER is substantially reduced due to the fact that all the lids and bottoms of each size POURSTER are interchangeable. When replacement of bottoms are necessary, the customer will find this process made easier due to the fact that the installation requires only one continuous weld, 18.5 feet versus 25 feet and thus less costly. Also, replacements on Modern's POURSTERS are reduced because the bumpers elimate damage by the trucks when transference of the refuse occurs.
Modern's POURSTER has a cylindrical design which reduces flow resistance due to absence of any corners, allowing the contents to be poured instead of dumped reducing the amount of spillage.
The heavier material, 10 gauge verses 12 gauge, incorporated with Modern's POURSTER and it's cylinderical design increases its strength. The rigidity of the lifting sleeves and bumpers are enhanced because of 1/4" and 10 gauge material.
In the five or six yard POURSTERS, the side doors are available in polyethylene or steel. Modern's POURSTERS may also be painted to the customer's color requirements.
