KEITH’s Walking Floor unloading system was named one of 16 finalists chosen by a panel of industry, education, and media leaders. Members of the public will choose the winner through several rounds of voting, the first of which ran through Sept. 26 at this site. The ultimate winner will be announced in October.

The  Walking Floor system uses a series of slats that move back and forth sequentially to convey materials from one end of the trailer to the other, making it possible to unload bulk materials quickly and efficiently. The system is used in a wide range of industries, including agriculture, waste management, and wood products.
