Burchland - Model EZR - Material Roller
The Burchland Mfg. Material Roller is a productivity tool that can save hundreds of hours installing erosion control blankets of all types. It can also be used for other rolled materials such as non-woven geotextiles, straw blankets, and geo-grids.
This labor saving erosion control device can cut your man hours and double your productivity at the same time. Dan Neaton of Neaton Bros. Erosion Control in Watertown, MN uses a roller on all of their erosion control blanket jobs. He says; 'Before we began using a roller, we had a six person crew to handle carrying the rolls, rolling and stapling. We could install 8000 sq. yards on a good day. Now, with the roller, we can install 20,000 sq. yards a day with a 5 person crew.' Kurt Pfaffinger of Trees Unlimited Inc. in Hampshire, IL says, 'By utilizing the EZR Material Roller we have cut our erosion control blanket installation times in half.'
The boom on the Material Roller can be controlled from the cab. It can swing 180° to unroll from the right or left side of the skid steer. The boom can also be positioned straight out from the cab to unload rolls directly from a trailer. This allows the contractor to use larger rolls that could not be handled manually. This saves material cost and time.
