Every little counts with the Excavator Drag Skip

The Excavator Drag Skip might not look like the pinnacle of innovation but looks can be deceiving! It is hugely popular on-site, which is largely due to its minimal wastage and cost-saving benefits.

Sometimes referred to as ‘the stone-saver’, ‘bedding box’, or ‘shingle skip’, the flat-based skip, is predominately used to shift vast volumes of materials, such as; shingle, dry mix concrete, sand, saved material for back-fill, stone and other bulk aggregates, across site.

Typically, when a dump truck delivers materials to site, it discharges the load onto the ground, which on muddy sites, can mean these materials get buried in the mud. Plus, transporting the materials around site can lead to dump trucks getting stuck or damaged…introducing, the Excavator Drag Skip!

So, what are the benefits?

Firstly, the Excavator Drag Skip, as the name suggests, can be dragged to the desired location on site by an excavator. This not only prevents the potential wear to dump trucks, it also  reduces material wastage.

Secondly, due to running on tracks rather than tyres, excavators can move across challenging terrain far easier than a dump truck, which eliminates the possibility of it getting stuck, especially on particularly muddy, or waterlogged sites.

Finally, another handy benefit of the Excavator Drag Skip is for Trench Shoring projects. By dragging it alongside the trench, it is a fast and efficient method of removing any waste material from the trench, or back-filling the trenches with shingle, when laying pipelines.
