Tong Engineering is pleased to announce new design options on its popular Fieldloader, including unique automatic transport-mode features, allowing users to make the machine even more compact for road transport.Designed to provide effective in-field cleaning and bulker loading in one mobile machine, the Tong Fieldloader is a mobile system which allows crop cleaning and inspection to take place straight from the harvester with direct loading into bulker lorries for immediate distribution.
“Our Fieldloader is increasingly popular with growers as it means soil is removed in the field and kept off the public roads, plus transport of crop is significantly reduced as there is a no need to transport crop to a central yard or location” explains Charlie Rich, Export Sales Manager at Tong Engineering. “It significantly reduces crop handling times, allowing growers to meet tight deadlines and deliver crop in optimum condition straight from the field.”
