The tommy™

 

 

The tommy™ machine installs silt fence the same way – the correct way – each and every time.

 

It does not:

 

The tommy™ easily maneuvers around construction site contours and obstacles, properly placing silt fence for detaining sediment-laden water. With the capability to turn 90 degrees within 10 feet, the tommy™ can easily create a J-hook to detain water – now prescribed and required by many regulatory agencies.

New Rules. Maximum length of any run should be 200 linear feet. Create multiple storage area for ponding stormwater. Trenchers cannot perform the new installation requirements.

Designs called J-hooks insure water & sediment pond behind each silt fence.

 

 

Easy turning also means maneuvering around obstacles on the construction site, and stability on slopes and tight areas. The tommy™ can be operated in many more locations than a trencher – again with significant time - savings and effective installations.

 

A rule of thumb might be that if you can’t install with a tommy™, it isn’t an appropriate location for silt fence.

 

 




Customer Comments

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™.
