crushing vat or grape-crushing vat

These have been found in the web. The process consists of separating the grapes from the stems and putting them into the vat, where they are gently squeezed with a rubber roller to obtain the "mosto". This is before fermentation.

grape crusher (hopper)

A tolva is usally translated as a hopper, and, as the Eurodicautom says, it is "the portion of a grape mill,usually in the form of a large funnel,into which the grapes are thrown and which feeds them to the crushing mechanism", which I have confirmed by visiting several sites. The crushing mechanism can be called (grape) crusher, or crusher-stemmer (if it destems as well). So, you have the "hopper of the crusher". As I only found crushing vat to do with the old foot method, and didn't find "tolva de molturación" at all, I suggest you ask the client exactly what they're talking about here.
