The Wombat is a remote control mini-loader originally designed to clear sand from round pipes and box culverts but can be readily used to clean under and around conveyors and other high risk situations. The original idea was aimed at improving methods and production rates of current cleaning methods. The focus is avoiding costly conveyor shut downs, enabling routine cleaning to be conducted while conveyors were still in operation.
The Wombat is the perfect solution, it can safely be used to crawl beneath active open conveyors and clean up spillage as required. The benefits are immediate, reducing the costs and injuries associated with manual labour using hand tools, reducing safety risks as less personnel on site and safe distances maintained, minimising water usage and waste as well as maintaining constant production.
Whether removing flood debris or just routine maintenance cleaning by Councils, Maintenance Contractors and Main Road Departments, culverts located beneath roads and highways have always been a logistical nightmare. Roadside safety, culvert access and the labour intensity involved with culvert cleaning are high risk and expensive.
That is - until the Wombat arrived in Central Queensland.
Australian Conveyor & Culvert Cleaning (ACCC for short) is excited to show how easily The Wombat can crawl into box and round culverts. Our trained operator stands safely clear of the road and culvert, whilst remotely directing The Wombat into the culvert to remove the debris. The Wombat’s compact size allows it to easily crawl in and out, getting the job done quickly and efficiently. ACCC provide an efficient and cost effective option for culvert cleaning.
One of our recent success stories was the removal of 1200 Tonne of sand from 4x300 metre long pipes in a remote location where water was difficult to access and traditional methods were not viable. Please see more in our case study
Larger excavation equipment can’t match The Wombat’s compact size, agility or the ability to drive through the culvert. We suggest that by choosing The Wombat instead of manual labour, there are no sore backs from bending or crawling through culverts or strains from using hand tools to manually remove debris.
Safety is our priority and customer satisfaction is our guarantee.
