An uphill stacking sorter 1 for collating the output of a
reproducing machine 2 such as a xerographic copier. The
copy sheets are fed from the reproducing machine 2 along
transports 3, 4, and 5, Sequentially actuated stripper

finger 6 distribute the copy sheets into the respective
sorter bins 7, which are arranged in a vertical array.
Each of the sorter bins includes a tray 8 which is inclin~
ed upwardly at an angle of about 30° to provide uphill
stacking. A sorter having the configuration shown is
advantageous since it allows the sorter bins 7 to be posi~
tioned at a convenient height for the operator, as for

example, elevated above the machine. This facilitates
unloading of the bins without the necessity for the
operator to stoop.
