UTILITY BACKFILL WORK
The Ozzie’s Mini-padding machine features a quick-connect padding head system that allows it to be quickly converted from a padding machine to a track-powered loader. With the Mini-padder, you can pad and backfill your trench or haul and/or handle material with a loader bucket, all with one machine. Ozzie’s Mini-padder can process up to 130 cubic yards (100 cubic meters) of material per hour. The Mini-padder is designed to backfill small diameter mainline pipelines ranging in size from 3 to 10 inches (76 to 254 mm) in diameter as well as backfill underground distribution and collection lines for solar and wind farm projects, commercial and residential utility pipelines, conduit, telephone lines, cable and fibre optic lines. The Mini-padder padding machine is self-propelled and self-loading and requires only one machine operator with no additional support equipment.
The Mini-padder features a heated, air conditioned positive pressure ROPS cab which offers the machine operator maximum comfort, safety and visibility. The Mini-padder is powered by a tier 3 diesel engine featuring 175 hp (129 kW) of power. Material from the trench spoil pile is scooped up by a 5 foot (1.5 meter) wide vibrating chain elevator system and moved to the top of the padding head where the over-size material falls off the back of the padding head and the screened material falls onto the conveyor system. Various chain sizes can be affixed to the elevator system in order to generate precise backfill material to meet customer specifications. A moving conveyor system located below the vibrating chain at the top end of the padding head conveys the screened material into the ditch as the machine travels down the spoil pile. The screened material is placed under, over and around the pipeline, cables, conduit, etc. situated at the bottom of the ditch.
