VMK50 is smaller than the standard hopper VMK52 and therefore suitable for smaller fish species like sardines and anchovy, or using in factories/vessels where space is limited. The VMK50 Hopper and Elevator is steplessly regulated with a wheel, and consists of plastic carriers that will lift the fish onto a feeder (VMK31) or in-feed table (for manual feeding). The machine is designed to work with water or brine in the hopper.

The elevator can be fitted with different sized buckets depending on the size of fish. It is delivered complete to be placed directly on the floor.
