Adding posts separetly takes a lot more time. FALSE.
Proven since Henry Ford made his first million dollars, production lines are more productive, and that is what you have with posting separately. Attaching fabric to posts is, in fact, the slowest part of the operation. But slicing is so much faster that neither of these two operations hinder the total performance compared to trenching.
Because we manage all SWPPP compliance activities at our clients’ job sites, we believe in installing silt fence that works. We’re big believers in the tommy™ Silt Fence Machine, and the whole concept of eliminating the use of failure-prone trenches for silt fence installation---because it’s simply a better way. A more cost-effective way, a more productive way, and a way that provides better compliance for our clients---what else can I say? We love the tommy™. Two years of daily, high volume, heavy-duty use has proven the tommy™ to be an absolutely reliable workhorse. It’s never let us down. Silt fence wouldn’t be the much-maligned BMP that it is today if more installers used the tommy™.
