Stone Cart

The Stone Cart is mainly used in drainage to carry and to distribute aggregate into trenches in conjunction with our Gravel Mole Plough. It comes with a standard 6 Tonne Hopper and 16.9-28 wheels.

Different wheels and side extensions are available on request.


What is a Stone Cart?

The Stone Cart have long been an indispensable tool in the realm of land drainage. These robust and utilitarian vehicles play a vital role in the maintenance and improvement of agricultural fields and waterlogged areas. Stone carts are specifically designed to transport and distribute stones or gravel into trenches or ditches, a crucial step in land drainage systems. By evenly dispersing these materials, they help create a porous pathway for excess water to flow away from the soil, preventing water logging and promoting healthier crop growth. These carts are typically equipped with sturdy wheels and mechanisms for precise stone placement, ensuring efficiency and effectiveness in the drainage process, they represent a fundamental component of land management practices, aiding in the sustainable and productive use of agricultural land.

What are the primary benefits of using a stone cart?

The primary functions and benefits of using a stone cart in agricultural land drainage projects include:

a. Effective Drainage: Stone carts are used to lay stones in drainage trenches, which facilitate the efficient removal of excess water from fields, preventing water logging and associated crop damage.

b. Soil Stabilisation: The stones laid by the cart help stabilise the soil structure, reducing soil erosion and improving the overall quality of the soil.

c. Enhanced Crop Growth: Proper land drainage through stone carts ensures that crops have adequate access to water and nutrients, promoting healthier and more productive crops.

d. Reduced Maintenance: Stone carts help create durable and long-lasting drainage systems, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and repairs.

e. Time and Labour Savings: Using stone carts is a more efficient way to distribute stone or aggregate materials compared to manual methods, saving time and labour costs.

What are the key components of a stone cart?

The key components and design considerations of a stone cart for land drainage in agricultural fields typically include:

a. Hopper or Bin: The cart features a hopper or a bin for holding the stone or aggregate material, often with an adjustable discharge mechanism for controlled distribution.

b. Conveyor System: A conveyor system, sometimes equipped with an adjustable speed control, is used to transport the stone from the hopper to the ground.

c. Wheels and Axles: The cart is mounted on wheels and axles to facilitate easy mobility and movement across the field.

d. Adjustable Spreader: The spreader mechanism allows for even distribution of stones in the drainage trench or channel. It may have adjustments for varying the spread width.

e. Sturdy Construction: The cart is built to withstand the demands of fieldwork, with sturdy materials and construction to ensure durability.

f. Size and Capacity: The size and capacity of the stone cart can vary depending on the specific needs of the land drainage project, with larger carts capable of covering more ground in less time.

g. Safety Features: Some stone carts may include safety features such as guards or shields to protect operators from moving parts and flying debris.
