Mobile Unloaders

We don’t build trailers, we unload them.

KEITH® WALKING FLOOR® self-unloading systems bring mobile unloading options to where tippers and dump trailers can’t: Inside buildings and tunnels, under power lines, and on uneven or unstable ground.

Safety is essential. The horizontal unloading action of the WALKING FLOOR® system is safer than dump or tipper trailers, which can overturn in windy conditions or due to load shift. WALKING FLOOR® trailers keep you grounded.

WALKING FLOOR®: How It Works

The WALKING FLOOR® system is made of a series of floor slats, which are powered by a hydraulic drive, usually located underneath. As the floor moves through its four-phase cycle, every third slat moves together. During the final phase, all slats move in unison conveying the material. The friction of the load on the two sets of slats that remain in place keeps the load from moving while the single set of slats moves.

KEITH® SWEEP SYSTEMS

KEITH® Sweep Systems clean the floor of the trailer as it unloads, reducing payload cross contamination. The automated system eliminates the need for brooms or manual tarps so the operator never needs to enter the trailer, providing a safer working environment. Sweep systems are based on the floor profile and the material unloaded. For more information, download the KEITH SWEEP SYSTEMS BROCHURE or CONTACT US.
