ADVANCED & RELIABLE BIG BAG & BOX TIPPING
Tong’s heavy-duty 160° Bag & Box Tipper is one of the most popular box tippers within Tong’s potato and vegetable tipping range.
Featuring advanced design and heavy duty construction, the 160 degree tipper allows boxes or big bags to be tipped through a wider arc of up to 160 degrees. This ensures crop is tipped gently and emptied fully, while also requiring less energy to operate.
Available in a choice of three models for boxes, big bags or both, when you choose a 160° Bag & Box Tipper you can be sure that your vegetable tipping systems are built to perform and engineered to last.
The 160° Bag & Box Tipper features the latest ram tipping mechanism design, with twin hydraulic rams, and enhanced linkage strength.
Manufactured in mild or stainless steel, Tong offers a robust and reliable tipping solution whether you are tipping 1 ton big bags or 2 ton boxes… and everything in between!

With a wide range of standard models suitable for big bag and/or box tipping, Tong offers a tipper to suit any throughput requirement, however large or small.
The advanced box and bag tipping mechanism on the Tong 160° Bag & Box Tipper is designed to put less strain on the tipper’s bearings and linkages, resulting in a reliably strong and robust mechanism, with minimal servicing and maintenance requirements, increased energy efficiency, and higher throughputs too.

BUILT IN POWER EFFICIENCY
All Tong box tippers are built with an energy efficient power-saving mode which identifies and shuts-off the tipper when not in use.
FORWARD & CROSS CONVEYOR
The option of an in-line forward conveyor is a popular choice for a continuous and even feed of crop from the tipper, as well as offering holding capacity whilst the box or bag is changed. The forward conveyor is fitted at the outfeed of the tipper and is available in two standard options – 1.8m long x 2m wide or 3m long x 2.2m wide.
Crop conveyors are powered by inverter direct drive variable speed motors, and a crop sensor fitted to the top of the conveyor controls the tipping mechanism and the even flow of crop from the tipper to the conveyor. Should there be no crop or a gap in the flow of crop on any part of the belt, the crop sensor automatically accelerates the belt until crop reaches the end of the belt, then the speed returns to normal.
Similar to the in-line forward conveyor, the option of a cross conveyor is offered at the outfeed of all Tong tippers. This option helps to ensure a continuous flow of crop, and offers crop-holding capacity whilst the box is changed. It is particularly popular where crop is required to flow at a 90 degree angle from the orientation of the tipper, often where space is limited.
Tong offers an automatic hydraulically operated clamp box lid as an option on all box tippers. The hydraulic lid automatically lowers onto the top of the box once the box is placed in the tipping cradle. This ensures a secure hold of the box within the tipper, and completely removes the chance of any spillage of crop.
When a full clamp lid is fitted, it incorporates a hydraulically opening flow door which opens to release crop once the box is tipped. A half clamp lid can also be fitted meaning half of the lid is open, so as the tipper lifts in increments, controlled by crop sensors, the crop gently flows out of the box.
