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

I purchased the tommy™ in 1997 as I anticipated potential growth of the erosion control industry. We’ve grown by leaps and bounds since then, and the tommy™ has led the way. We run the heck out of it and it just keeps working. It goes into very hard ground and doesn’t take much H.P. It’s also important that we can use it on different equipment, which really gives us flexibility.
