Shooter

A Multicat Soil/Stone Spreader paid us a visit. It made its presence known by making a horrendous noise – much like bolts in a blender. Once we got past the noise, the Multicat put on a spectacular show for us. Using two parallel, high-speed conveyor belts, one upper and one lower, the Multicat fed its gravel load into the moving conveyors. The conveyors then transferred their speed to the gravel, which shot the gravel upwards of 10 metres or more into the building. Wow!

The gravel will be spread and levelled to provide a base for the concrete that will be poured to form the main floor of the dealership. As far as delivery systems are concerned, it’s hard to imagine a more efficient (or entertaining) way to deliver the gravel to where it’s needed on site.
