Mike knew from the start that his crawler carrier would benefit a number of industries by providing them with a new innovative unit, but no one could have guessed just how many additional industries would come out of the wood work in search of Terramac® crawler carriers.

Latest Industry to Benefit from Terramac® Crawler Carriers: Landfill & Waste Management

One of the greatest obstacles landfills face are the harsh land conditions, and their consistent need to have a vehicle capable of maneuvering over the landfill to lay ground covering. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Landfill Manual, landfills are required by law to lay a daily cover. This is usually done with geotextile fabric, and the purpose of it is to protect the ground from environmental damage, prevent blowing, and reduce odor. That said, ground cover is of utmost importance, and landfills are daunted with the task of choosing the proper equipment to lay heavy rolls of geotextile fabric day in and day out.

This is where Terramac® crawler carriers come into play. The Terramac® RT9 rubber tracked crawler carrier was built with added torque and low ground pressure capable of handling the landfills soft and slopped terrain. The versatility of a unit such as this will prevent the untimely downtime that can often occur from poor weather conditions or other factors that create ground instability. Terramac® crawler carriers have been found dominant enough to power through the harsh landfill/waste environment while leaving minimal signs of ever even being there with their low ground pressure.

The unit’s quick and easy bolt on/off attachment system also provides the Terramac® RT9 the ability to add a customized roller system to the unit to accommodate the use of the geotextile fabric. The combination of features makes Terramac® crawler carriers the perfect fit for landfills looking to improve their daily productivity.
