Compost turning machine. Built for California Mushroom Co. This unusual, custom built machine incorporated a modified back hoe installed on a Hyster lumber carrier. This machine would straddle rows of manure and straw and turn over this material during compost process without allowing it to cause spontaneous combustion.

Mobile concrete receiver/transport vehicleMobile concrete receiver/ transport vehicle. To facilitate improved production in the construction of the Feather River Canal and San Luis Dam in Northern California, Klein Products, Inc. designed and manufactured a mobile concrete receiver/ transport vehicle. Built on Caterpillar D6 undercarriages this unique vehicle received hot concrete and fed the concrete skreat which lined the canal.

Feed lot watering equipment. A Cattle company had a problem with feed lot dust causing lung and respiratory problems with the feeder cattle. Klein solved the problem by designing a machine that traveled very slowly between the feed lot pens and delivered a misty "rain’ evenly and consistently from 1 foot to 250 feet away from machine. This "rain" prevented dust and the subsequent lung problems. The unique design of this vehicle enabled complete coverage of feed lot in one pass.

Portable fuel storage/ discharge tanks for Automobile race tracks. Klein Products, Inc. designed and manufactured above ground, quick fueling, discharge tank systems for The Ontario Motor Speedway. These tanks provided quick fuel recovery to race cars during races in pit row.


Self-loading scraperSelf- loading scraper. During the time others invented the "paddle wheel" type scraper, all the designs were focused around new carry all scraper units that provided a false floor to remove or dump their dirt load. Klein came up with a design to convert a standard bowl scraper to a paddle wheel scraper utilizing a paddle wheel system that moved on a track that would put the system out of the way for a standard tail gate to push the dirt load out of the bowl. Thus not requiring owners of standard scrapers the need to purchase a complete new machine. Klein built several models to fit Caterpillar, Wabco, Allis Chalmers and Clark Michigan scrapers.
