Portable Conveyors Boost Safety & Productivity for Utility Contractors

linkit conveyors for utility contractors


What do you do when a barge misses the storage tank and spills 3,000 gallons of fuel on site?

You’re left with a massive environmental clean-up project to remediate 450 yards of sand and topsoil on top of a semi-inground fuel storage tank.

We know what you’re picturing: two-weeks, dozens upon dozens of laborers, stockpiles of sand and topsoil, shovels and pails, ladders, and a 21st-century “bucket brigade” placing clean fill.

InterQuip helped to complete this two-week job inside of 3 days.

InterQuip’s All Terrain Slinger was stationed in the driveway. The clean fill was loaded directly into its steel hopper 7 cubic yards at a time to be dispensed to the rooftop. With the limited weight capacity of the roof, LINKIT Conveyors were an ideal equipment choice for their light weight and portability. The conveyors teamed together to move sand across the surface of the roof and in and around the array of pipework and venting systems. The duo of All Terrain Slinger and LINKIT Conveyors not only saved countless man-hours, but they also reduced tripping hazards that would have been a bigger concern with manual methods.

LINKIT Portable Conveyors aren’t just for placing sand and soil over rooftop utilities. They’re also top performers for underground utilities and trench work.
