Grain handling equipment specialist Kilic Engineering has recently completed development of its latest stacker, the Super Roo.

The company – which is based in Regency Park, South Australia – has sold three of the stackers, including one to an international client.

The Super Roo is a variation of the standard Roo BunkerStacker product and includes changes driven from customer conversations.

It features a wider conveyor boom and increased power through all drive mechanisms boosting capacity from 600 to 750 tonnes per hour of clean wheat on the belt.

In addition, the development team managed to reduce the overall footprint of the machine so it can be deployed to a greater array of grain bunker layouts.

Kilic Engineering Managing Director Jason Kilic said the company’s decision to persist with innovation and product development through challenging times is paying dividends.

“The Super Roo is something that was on our product development agenda for some time,” Kilic said.

“We’re incredibly excited to now offer the product to the market and encouraged by the immediate initial interest and sales.

“We see great potential for this product over the medium and longer term after listening to customers as large as CBH in Western Australia through to emerging players in eastern Australia speaking about the value of smaller footprint, high output equipment to their operations.”

Kilic said the company has proven the adaptability of this equipment to overseas applications as well as to other agricultural products such as soy bean meal and even wood pellets.

“Even in these times of restricted movement, KE remains committed to growing its business both on and offshore with customers seeing that we can produce a cost effective and superior product from our South Australia base,” he said.
