This was already the case with the use of the telescopic loader, but it is now also possible with a forklift. You can now pick up boxes from a row or place them up against each other with a forward tipping box rotator. WIFO will be introducing the new K95 forward tipping box rotator on the 1st of January 2018. A product and box-friendly rotator with a unique tipping mechanism which leaves the sides of the box completely free.
The current forward tipping box rotators still have a tipping mechanism at the side of the box, but the new WIFO K95 forward tipping box rotator has a unique tipping mechanism with two extending curved profiles. The box rotator can be used in many ways. It has a wide tipping angle of 150 degrees and a maximum load capacity of 2,500 kg. Because the tipping mechanism is located behind the box, the sides remain completely free, making it possible to place the boxes against each other easily. It also requires only one forklift to handle the boxes, which saves both time and space. The machine is fitted with an upper clamp and in the case of standard potato boxes (1600 mm wide) the clamp ends up exactly on the edge of the box so that the top of the box is completely unobstructed and the products can come out of the box easily. The box is completely clamped fast, which means that it will suffer little or no damage. When the clamp is completely open, it is possible to pick up several empty boxes. The use of a sequence valve makes it possible to empty out the boxes in a controlled and careful way. The K95 is normally supplied for forklifts but is also suitable for any type of telescopic handler.
With the arrival of the K95, WIFO now offers an even more complete range of forward tipping box rotators, which gives it an even stronger position as a specialist in box rotators. The K95 will be on display at the Agritechnica fair in Hanover (Germany) from 12 to 18 November. The first 0 serie of 5 rotators will be available from the 1st of January 2018.
WIFO-Anema added a new machine to its box rotator line, the K90 forward tipping box rotator. The solid and powerful box rotator is ideal for emptying crops such as potatoes, carrots and onions in a product friendly way. The K90 box rotator distinguishes itself from other box tippers through the adjustable rear frame with which it can be used for different box sizes. The K90 box tipper is therefore a welcome addition to the potato intake process and ideal for farmers that use different box sizes.
