Problem: Delivering Material in Tight Spaces
Solution: Portable Belts
Landscape contractor, Valley Crest Landscaping, was confronted with the task of filling newly constructed planter boxes around a new apartment complex in Pleasant Hill, CA. The site consisted of numerous buildings with tight access. The original plan was to use laborers with wheelbarrows to fill all of the planter boxes. It was estimated that the task would take more than a week to complete.
After consulting with Gary Brandt with Conco Pumping, Gary recommended that Valley Crest utilize Conco’s portable belts. These belts are capable of being deployed in tight spaces between buildings, can be configured to transport material around corners, use 110V single phase power, and can deliver material at the rate of 40 TPH.
With Conco’s portable belts, Valley Crest was able to complete the task in half the budgeted time using half the projected labor expense. Most important it allowed the GC the extra days needed to complete this project so the new tenants would be moved in on the dates promised by the owner.
Conco’s portable belts have many other practical uses. Some of the more notable uses include:
- Import/export of material in confined space building basements
- Back fill of retaining walls, abandoned swimming pools, etc.
- Conveyance of masonry block, pavers and other building materials to upper level decks or into tight areas
- Transportation of ballot boxes from delivery vehicles to counter rooms.
