Latest version of Haith’s Rota-tip to launch at British Potato 21

LinkedIn +

With over 170 machines sold, Haith’s Rota-tip range is the potato industry’s most popular box tippler, and visitors to this year’s British Potato will be the first to see the next generation of the class-leading machine.

The Rota-tip PRO, which has had a patent application granted, will take centre stage on Haith’s stand on 24 and 25 November.

The Rota-tip PRO features all-electric drives and a new mechanism to allow it to take boxes of varying heights, which will be clamped to ensure they’re secure and that the contents are not spilled during the process.


Haith has also added a powered rotation lid to the new Rota-tip PRO. In previous models, the web lid is fixed, but in the latest version, the lid extends just before the tipping process starts.

To make transportation easier, the new Rota-tip PRO has a narrower footprint than previous models. The 300mm difference means that the new Rota-tip PRO takes up less space, making it ideal for small packhouses and facilities.

Haith’s strategic partners Grimme will also have a strong presence on the stand as both companies make their first appearance at British Potatoes since formalising their working relationship.

“As well as our team, who will be able to talk to people about our class-leading range of vegetable handling solutions, we will have members of the Grimme sales team with us as part of our strategic working relationship,” says Duane Hill, Haith’s managing director. “And, just like previous shows, visitors to our stand are guaranteed a warm welcome, and we will be treating them to some of Yorkshire’s finest food and drink as normal!”

Haith Group has exhibited at every British Potato show, and once again, the company is one of the event sponsors as the company continues to support the industry and the potato growers that have put their trust in the company’s products.
