The Ozzie’s OPP-300 padding machine is our largest mainline pipeline padding machine. Featuring an 11 foot 8 inch wide scoop, the OPP-300 can process up to 778 cubic yards (595 cubic meters) of material per hour. The OPP-300 padding machine is designed to backfill large diameter mainline pipelines ranging from 24 to 60+ inches (610 to 1,525 mm) in diameter. The OPP-300 padding machine is self-propelled and self-loading and requires only one machine operator with no additional support equipment. The OPP-300 features a heated, air-conditioned positive pressure ROPS cab which offers the machine operator maximum comfort, safety and visibility.
The OPP-300 is powered by a Caterpillar C-13 tier 3 diesel engine featuring 440 hp (328 kW) of power. A hydrostatically controlled elevator located at the front of the machine picks up material from the trench spoil pile and elevates it to the shaker system situated at the back end of the machine where it is screened. Different screen sizes can be affixed to the shaker system in order to generate precise backfill material to meet customer specifications. The screened backfill material falls onto a moving conveyor system located below the shaker screen and the oversized material falls off of the back of the shaker system back into the spoil pile. The screened material is placed under, over and around the pipeline situated at the bottom of the ditch by way of the conveyor system.
