Plow vs tommy™

 

Contractors want to know the difference between the tommy™ silt fence machine and silt fence plows.   The tommy™ is a machine because it is engineered to achieve end goals of efficiency and quality installation in all conditions – slopes, sharp turns, and tight spaces. 

 

Simply put, the tommy™ silt fence machine scientifically disrupts the soil into a pliable medium that will secure the silt fence fabric in the slice without an extra man holding it, in as with a silt fence plow.   

 

A secure fabric installation prevents significant downtimes, lowers operating costs, and increases the hourly efficiency of your crews! 

 

The plows drag through the soil like a 2 x 4, without design or regard to the end results. creating a compacted slice, resulting in silt fence fabric loosely installed. Why does that matter to a contractor? As you can see from the videos, in any condition other than a flat straight line, the plows need an extra man to help keep the fabric in the soil.  And when the fabric pulls out in a turn or terrain change, it takes a lot of extra man hours to fix the installation – that means more time and higher costs!  

 

 

 

 




Customer Comments

I absolutely love the tommy™. We’re working less hours and servicing more clients. The tommy™ stays in the ground, and the guys aren’t fighting fabric against the wind all day long, like we were with prefab. And, there’s just minor maintenance over a year. We couldn’t be happier.
