The new machine from Haith offers several advantages over the current version.
Capable of filling up to 40 boxes per hour, the Supa-Fill 400 comes with an Omron NB 3 HMI control screen, giving the user fingertip access to the machine’s advanced functions, including manual and fully automatic box filling, box height selection, lifetime and batch counting for stock recording and assisting with maintenance scheduling.
As well as the HMI screen, the Supa-Fill 400 PRO Box Filler also offers variable speed control as standard, a flat belt with fall retarders which provide better cushioning to the crop compared to machines using cleats or door stops.
The Supa-Fill 400 PRO Box Filler accommodates boxes ranging from 900 to 1200mm in height and, by featuring self-levelling sensors the machine, which Haith believes is the most sophisticated on the market today, delivers consistently even filling.
“We’ve taken our class-leading box filler and improved it,” says Ken Hollingsworth, UK sales at Haith. “We’ve included several innovative features as standard, which differentiates the Supa-Fill 400 from competitor machines. The result is a machine that offers the best possible handling, works quickly and efficiently and features advanced functionality as standard. We think the Supa-Fill 400 PRO will be a very popular choice for farmers and packers looking for exceptional build quality, features and value for money.”
As well as improving the features found on the machine, Haith has also extended the warranty from one to two years at no extra cost.
