Why crank tarps by hand when you can go electric?

Roll-Rite says users of hand-crank cable-style tarp systems can quickly and easily convert to a direct drive electric system with its TaskMaster Power Kit. Designed to accommodate a 1-inch cross-shaft, the power kit can be mounted in under four hours, with no coupling or cutting required, the company says.

Operated by an in-cab rocker switch, the TaskMaster power kit offers increased safety, convenience and control, according to Roll-Rite; the kit can be mounted anywhere on the front cross shaft to keep the motor away from the outside of the trailer where it easily could be hit and damaged.

The kit is powered by the TaskMaster, one of several Roll-Rite direct-drive electric gear motors that works without chains or sprockets. Included with the kit is 85 feet of 6-gauge dual conductor wire, 15 feet of 14-gauge 3-conductor wire, and an aluminum mounting bracket. An optional wireless remote control also is available.
