Bin Bots Replace Humans

Jerome Mack ran a company that made robotic tools. In 1998, his best friend died in a grain bin accident and he formed Mack Robots to make bots that could do the work. Last year the $15,000 - $17,000 Bin Bots began selling and were featured at this year's Minnesota Grain and Feed Association convention and trade show.

The service bot measures 6 x 2 feet, weighs 800 lbs. and can both fit through a grain bin door and is strong enough lift heavy buckets. It can be operated by a worker from outside with an optional video camera and lights.
