Dirt conveyors are for short duration jobs that involve moving dry soil, aggregate, sand, or gravel, even wet slurries, and mud. They’re fabricated in narrow widths and short lengths to access confined spaces and may be mounted on a wheeled undercarriage for mobility. Longer distances are easily covered by cascading from one conveyor onto the next. Cleats or buckets on the belt prevent material rollback.
A dirt conveyor will move more tons per hour than you could achieve with wheelbarrows and require a fraction of the labor. If you’re looking for a way to get a project finished faster, a dirt conveyor may be the tool you need.
Applications for dirt conveyors include:
