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 tommy™ simply outperforms the plow for a comparable price with less manpower.

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

The durability, ease of operation, and ability to install large amounts of fence per day with a two-man crew, made the tommy™ a wise choice when considering our method for installation. We purchased a tommy™ May 2003 and have installed in some of the worst conditions Florida has to offer; the machine has hit everything from engine blocks to refrigerators with no damage to the machine. I attribute our growth over the past year to the tommy™ and plan to purchase another in the future.
