Australian-based KE Agri International has been designing and building material handling equipment for the grain industry for more than 40 years.
In March 2019, the company introduced the BunkerSweeper 500, a self-contained, self-propelled temporary storage reclaimer, for the North American market.
"Because the BunkerSweeper is self-propelled, it doesn't need to rely on tractors," says Owner and Managing Director Jason Kilic. "It's highly maneuverable, so it can twist, turn, and change its angle of attack around a bunker or ground pile. It's designed to make reclaiming grain from a bunker or ground pile and loading into truck quick and easy."
"The BunkerSweeper has a design capacity of 18,000 bph (500 tph) and is easy to transport," adds Kilic. "Essential design elements make it safe and easy for one person to operate, reducing labor costs. Pay loaders, which are currently used to reclaim grain from bunkers and ground piles, are expemsive, costly to run, and have safety risks associated with them."
