Specialist contractors looking for ways to reduce operating costs should take a look at the latest trench backfilling equipment from Shelton .
The six tonne capacity machine is mounted on wide low ground pressure tyres and coupled to a tractor of 60+ hp. It is capable of back filling trenches from 50mm wide upwards at forward speeds of 5-6 miles per hour. It enables one operator to place gravel, Lytag and sands with virtually no spillage.
What has been a slow, tedious job can now be undertaken more quickly than the trenching operation, even when the operator loads the Shelton Fast-Flow hopper himself. With the optional extra rear view camera and the screen mounted in the tractor cab the driver has a clear view of the work without the need to be constantly looking over his shoulder.
