Yankton, South Dakota- KPI-JCI designs innovative manufacturing equipment to increase efficiency and profitability within the material-handling, mining, quarry and recycling industries. Today, they are unveiling a new LOW PRO Drive-Over Truck Unloader.
“We have engineered a heavy-duty product that is easy to use and environmentally friendly. If the LOW PRO Drive-Over Truck Unloader is paired with KPI-JCI’s SuperStacker®, companies will maximize loads, minimize fuel costs and increase profitability,” says Mike Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at KPI-JCI.
The low 3’ profile of the 48” LOW PRO means operators spend less time prepping the work site with earthen ramps and more time unloading and stockpiling materials. The unloader’s compact design makes it easy to move to multiple locations on a given site and eliminates the time spent unloading machinery to and from a trailer, maximizing productivity.
KPI-JCI is dedicated to keeping sites up and running so companies can complete the task-at-hand. To help keep projects on schedule, LOW PRO parts and services are available from local dealers and representatives.
