The laboursave machine was installed in July 2017. The machine automatically picks up the 25 kilo sacks and runs them over spinning blades and a hopper to empty them into the elevator, which feeds the tanker. It then returns back to the pallet of bags, dropping the empty sacks into a holding bin before collecting the next run of full bags, repeating the process until the tanker is fully loaded.
This operation used to be done manually and would require at least 4 men, the operation now only requires one man, thus saving a lot of labour costs.
