The Felco Backfill Conveyor provides speed in backfilling an open trench. For maximum production, the excavator operator places material in the hopper, sending it the length of the conveyor. The material is returned to the trench (past the trench box) by means of a reversible cross conveyor and is immediately accessible for compaction. Utilizing the Felco Backfill Conveyor to immediately return spoil to the trench increases the efficiency and profitability of a project in a number of ways: It removes costly truck requirements from the trenching operation and eliminates spoil stockpiling to maximize digging time. It also helps prevent clean-up costs and potential damage to private property. Felco Backfill Conveyors are available with a custom swivel conveyor option. The swivel conveyor is attached directly below the end of the main conveyor. The swivel conveyor can be rotated to allow the operator to place the spoils exactly where they are needed.
