" The electric tarps have been really nice to have on my semi trailers. They are easy to install and simple to operate. If something doesn't work just right or we have a question we call into Agri-Cover and they get us the part or answer we need. It sure is nice not to have to crank that tarp open and closed anymore. "

" Over a year ago I added ROLTEC Electric Tarp and Hopper Conversions to three of my semi trailers. Being a custom harvester I know the importance of efficient work and my drivers really like how easy they are to use. I did the installation myself and after I got the first one done the rest went on really fast. Using the wireless remote saves a lot of time, when pulling into the elevator I can open my tarp as I drive and it keeps the flow of traffic going. The guys working at the elevator really like being able to flip the switch on the receiver box to open the hoppers too. "

" I own 2 of the Roltec electric conversions and I am very happy with them. I like the new Roltec because of the rear spring arm which works much better than a bungee or a cable return. Plus it is nice not having to get out of the truck to open and close the tarp. "
