Rockhampton Culvert Cleaning Tools

Case Study

We were set a task not attempted before. Traditionally to do this job we would have used a high pressure water jetting truck, however the material was sand which is difficult to move and the pipes were too long to jet efficiently and the volume of water required and the mess it would create made this option unviable. We had to come up with another option. We searched the internet and couldn’t find anything even close to suitable.

I have had this design in my head for several years and this was the perfect opportunity. We teamed up with a local engineering company to bring it to fruition

The machine had to be

  1. Robust
  2. Have plenty of power
  3. Simple to maintain
  4. Simple to operate
  5. Low maintenance
  6. Minimal electronics (means less problems)
  7. Made from readily available off the shelf parts
  8. Be quick over the ground (10 klm/h)

To say we were happy with the end result would be an understatement and there are some very happy clients.
