Filling trenches cleanly and professionally with a filling funnel
After the laying of pipes or cables, the work on construction projects is not quite finished. Now it is important to fill in the ditches that have been excavated and to ensure that the ground is as level as possible. This applies to small trenches on private property as well as large trenches in construction projects of companies or the state. A filling funnel is a great help when backfilling trenches. This makes backfilling the ditch particularly quick and easy.
For which tasks is a backfilling funnel used?
A filling funnel is particularly useful for sports ground construction. Here, trenches often have to be milled, for example to lay power cables or to lay pipes invisibly. Once this has been done, however, it is often not the excavated material itself that is returned to the trench, but rather it is backfilled with a different material. This is particularly important in sports competitions in order to ensure equal conditions for all athletes.
In addition to sports field construction, filling funnels are also used in cable construction. This plays a particularly important role with telecommunications cables. Such cables have to be professionally laid so that unrestricted communication is possible. Digitalisation in particular depends on professional cable construction. Therefore, it is very useful to professionally backfill the trenches that have been milled for this purpose and to use a high-quality filling funnel for this purpose. So whether for sports ground construction, cable construction or any other type of project, such a funnel always makes the work of the users easier.
Individual selection criteria for a filling funnel
Various models are available when selecting a filling funnel. These are particularly suitable for different applications and projects. Large hoppers are very suitable for example for sports field construction. Here there is plenty of space available so that a large unit can be used. This makes filling up particularly quick and easy. In other areas of application the space available is considerably less. Here it makes sense to use a model with smaller dimensions.
The various models are also equipped with technologies that allow the filling hopper to be individually adapted. For example, the different models have a hydraulically adjustable axle that allows individual adaptation. In addition, the filling height can be selected individually. In this way, the hopper can be used in a large number of applications and can be adapted to different conditions.
Filling hoppers can be optionally extended
When a filling funnel is used in the construction of sports fields, the expectations placed on it are completely different from those placed on it when it is used for cable construction. In order to meet these diverse requirements, it is possible to equip the funnel with various accessories. Among other things, there is a choice of filling augers with which filling can be carried out in a particularly professional manner. When choosing, it is important to find the most suitable augers for your own hopper. Models with a compaction wheel or hydraulic opening mechanism can also be selected. Both accessories make work easier for users and ensure maximum safety and accuracy.
Important criteria when choosing a filling hopper
An important selection criterion for a hopper is its capacity. As a standard, 2 m³ usually fit into such a device. However, models with a higher or lower capacity can also be selected on request. It is also important to consider for which materials the respective hopper is suitable. This is because sometimes a trench is filled with the excavated material itself, but concrete is often used for sports ground construction or cable laying. The machines from Grabenmeister are characterised by their particularly high quality and durability and can therefore be found on numerous construction sites and in many projects.
