Spanish term or phrase: volteador
Cuando queden obstruidas algunas patatas en el volteador, usted tendrá la obligación de parar y desconectar la máquina además de colocar las patatas dentro con las manos, NUNCA CON LA CARRETILLA.
These are food safety and hygiene regulations for a warehouse. Does anyone know what a volteador could be here? Is it just a mixer perhaps? I have no further information about the machine I'm afraid. If it helps Carretilla seems to be used in my text as a synonym for forklift truck or a type of dolly.
Many thanks to anyone who can help!

industrial potato crusher
Explanation:
"volteador" in this context seems to be a container for reducing a product to a manageable/desirable size/mass, whether it be hamburgers, compost etc., in which case the verb "crusher" is only an idea - "smasher" "reducer" or any other terms compatible with wrestling will do!

Thank you for your answer and help. I would say this is the most likely option but I think I'm going to have to consult the matter with the client to be sure. Thanks to bigdesenior and Raúl Waldman for your answers also.
