Built to combine high capacity and gentle box filling, with reduced forklift movements for maximum efficiency, the new MonstaFill box filler is the latest addition to Tong’s range of advanced box filling equipment. Manufactured to gently and evenly fill 1 or 2 ton boxes, the new MonstaFill maximises throughput whilst significantly reducing forklift movements.
HIGH VEGETABLE BOX FILLING CAPACITY
Featuring a 2.5 or 3.8 cubic metre capacity holding hopper at each end of the machine’s main crop conveyor, suited for 1 or 2-ton boxes respectively, the new MonstaFill gently transfers crop to two rubber-lined holding hoppers. The hopper tanks are fitted with integrated loadcells which allow them to fill to a pre-determined weight ready for discharge into boxes. Once one hopper is full, the conveyor begins to fill the second hopper.
The new filler detects when an empty box is presented by the forklift and the hopper discharges crop into the box as it is lowered by the forklift. The process means that the forklift then takes the full box away and returns with an empty box to repeat the process. The discharge mechanism of the holding hoppers ensures a very even fill of each box, and the integrated weight indicators can be set up to transfer the data for each box directly to your chosen crop statistics database.
So if you’re looking for a gentle, advanced and high capacity box filler suitable for potatoes, onions, swede, carrots, beetroot and more, then get in touch with Tong to discuss your requirements today.

HIGH THROUGHPUT FILLING
The MonstaFill is proven to transform box filling throughput, with the capability to gently and evenly fill boxes at a throughput of up to 55 tons per hour. The discharge mechanism of the machine’s holding hoppers means a very even fill of each box at high throughputs.
The MonstaFill Box Filler is fed by a swan neck elevator with minimal drop for the gentlest handling. The MonstaFill can be integrated within any potato and vegetable handling line, to receive crop directly from Tong grading and sorting systems.
ADVANCED DATA CAPTURE
The integrated weight indicators on the MonstaFill box filler transfer the data for each box directly to your choice of crop statistics database.
