All in all, there are nearly 40 hours of educational components offered. GEAPS truly fulfills their mission to “support its members and the industry by serving as The Knowledge Resource for the world of grain handling and processing industry operations.”
2. Discover the innovative equipment shaping the industry
Grain industry and safety professionals, students and executives alike all attend the GEAPS Exchange to see firsthand how the latest equipment will help better their businesses.
Members of the Arnold Company team will feature our very own, newly-patented Hopper Trailer Opener. This is the world’s first portable, handheld unit designed to open trailer gates safely and efficiently.
The Hopper Trailer Opener boasts enough torque and speed to open trailer gates with ease. This unit remains lightweight for complete operator control and all-day use. Our innovative equipment allows the operator to ‘feel’ when they are at the end of the gate. This aspect sets it apart from other trailer openers on the market that cannot minimize gate damage as effectively as is needed.
Overall, we focus on improving productivity and enhancing safety. Our unit’s ergonomic design allows the operator to comfortably stand while keeping their hands out of harm’s way.
