Time Savings

Where is the Exact Time Savings?


Many contractors are proud of their highly productive crews, and rightfully so considering their out-dated equipment. But the tommy™ technology eliminates so many labor factors there really is no comparison.

 

The greatest savings comes from the speed of the power vehicles. Whether using a tractor or a skid loader, slicing through the soil is between two to four times faster than excavating tons of soil. (before the trencher has gone 100’.)

 

Eliminating the need to backfill is probably the second greatest time saver, especially when excavating in sod, saturated soils or sand. The 2003 ASTM specification requires over-backfilling the trench and mechanically compacting to a full level trench.

 

 

With the tommy™ there are:

And finally, 2500 linear feet rolls of fabric eliminate hours of down-time for materials handling.

 




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™.
