There is a less expensive way than purchasing a carhoe or car tipper. There is a company called Pneumat Systems out of Mankato, MN that has a railcar drill and whip system. It has a drill that works like a drill press that sits on top of the car to make a hole down to the bottom. Then you set up the whip machine on top of it. It eats at like a big weed eater. Sometimes all the product will fall out without even using the whip. It is an alternative.
