Dirt conveyors are ideal for short-duration jobs that involve moving dry soil, aggregate, sand, gravel, wet slurries, and mud. We fabricate them in narrow widths and short lengths to better access confined spaces.

We may mount them on a wheeled undercarriage for improved mobility for specific applications. Long distance runs are easily covered by cascading from one conveyor onto the next. Cleats or buckets on the belts prevent material rollback.

A dirt conveyor from West River Conveyors will move more tons per hour than you could achieve with wheelbarrows or a fleet of trucks—while requiring just a fraction of the labor.

Applications for dirt conveyors include:

At West River Conveyors, we are the foremost experts in building systems for conveying wet, dry, heavy, and abrasive materials in places like mines, quarries, ports, storage yards, power plants, and construction sites.

We build our custom dirt conveyors from high-quality materials while sourcing components from industry-leading manufacturers. We’ll engineer a customized dirt conveyor system to meet your exact requirements. Contact us below to learn more.
