Suitable for use with most forklifts, Tong’s tipping skips make light work of collecting waste, whether that be from packhouses, farmyards, grading lines, workshops or building sites. Once you have a Tong forklift tipping skip, you’ll have it for many years, and you might just wonder what you did without it before!

Your choice of skip certainly isn’t limited, meaning you can choose the right size for your needs. The larger the skip, the larger the footprint, so if you only have a small packhouse or farmyard to work on, a 1-ton skip might be perfect for you. No matter what you use the skips for, a self tip skip from Tong is a simple yet effective way of collecting and removing waste from one area to another.

Tong has been manufacturing forklift self tipping skips in a variety of models for many years, with the 1 ton and 2 ton models being a staple on vegetable grading & handling sites, farmyards, factories and production facilities worldwide.

Manufactured to the most robust design, Tong’s forklift self tipping skips are built to last with heavy-duty construction ensuring performance in the most demanding situations. The single lever action tips the skip to discharge contents, and it then automatically returns when forklift tines are tilted backwards. So simply take your pick from our range of high quality auto-roll skips, 1-ton skip, 2-ton skips, and stainless steel skips.



Tong’s 1 ton self tip skip is ideal where the skip is required for use in tighter, more confined spaces. With dimensions of 0.95m high x 1.86m long x 1.05m wide at the widest point, the 1 ton skip has a 0.75 cubic metre capacity, 500 litre liquid capacity and weighs 250kg.


Tong’s 2 ton skips are the most popular model, giving twice the capacity of the one ton model at only slightly more cost. With dimensions of 1.01m high x 1.89m long x 1.57m wide at the widest point, the 2 ton skip has a 1.35 cubic metre capacity, 830 litre liquid capacity and weighs 300kg

Tong’s auto-roll self tipping skips offer the ultimate skip solution when it comes to both safety and convenience.

Similar to our standard self tipping skips that are built to be used as a forklift attachment with a self tip function, which tips the skip forward when the hold back device is released, Tong’s Auto Roll skips do practically the same job but tip automatically when a small amount of pressure is applied to the base of the skip. Completely removing any need to pull a tipping lever or get out of the forklift.

Designed with complete ease of use and safety in mind, these Auto Roll forklift skips are built to the same robust construction as our standard skips, but make keeping your premises, farmyards, packhouses and sites an even easier task!

When pressure is applied to the designated area at the bottom of the skip, the skip tips automatically. Once tipped, the skip returns back to its locked position with a simple tilt backwards of the forklift tines. Take a look at the video below and you will see just how well it works!

So, if you’re looking to update your skip waste systems, why not try a quick, easy, safe, convenient and reliable auto-roll tipping skip from Tong.
