Yes, the Rockslinger® trucks and machines can load and spread a wide range of products. Customers have the option of product supply from our Rockslinger® yard, or supply from your preferred material supplier. Generally, the slinger can install product up to 75mm in size, from sand sized particles, to pebbles and aggregates.

Yes, the Rockslinger® machines can install site soil if it is graded. We send a Project Estimator to any site before the project starts, to ensure that site soil, access and time frame are confirmed.

A Rockslinger® is the trademarked term for a High Speed Conveyor Application System.  Other commonly used terms are “slinger” or “stone slinger”. The machine spreads sand, soil and gravel at a fast rate from the truck’s bin via a high speed conveyor belt, applying the product to site. The Rockslinger® machinery can carefully apply product along trenches to fill them, or can broadcast product in an arc like shape with a movable arm for bio-retention basins, leveling land, or stabilising batters.

The arm on the slinger has a 5 metre reach, and can spread up to 30 metres away from where the truck or machine (if it’s our All-Terrain slinger) can park. A clear line of sight is needed, but the product can be placed over walls or ditches to the area it needs to go.
