The Dirt Pans are by far our most widely used accessory. Their
design has evolved over the years taking into consideration
such things as durability, load capacity and most of all efficiency.
Our Dirt Pans are fabricated with the durability to endure
the constant daily loading, unloading and dumping required
for transporting and storing the dirt from gravesite digs.
They are custom made of heavy gauge steel to fit the contour
of the Mini-Haul II machine and the Mini-Haul C machine. We
intentionally designed them with no moving parts, such as
tailgates, to minimize the need to fix broken parts and reduce
the risk of personal injury to employees.
The load capacity of our Dirt Pans depends on the machine
chosen for the specific needs of our cemetery customers. The
Mini-Haul II machine accepts the larger pans which have a
load capacity of approximately 3 1/2 yards or 7,000 lbs. The
Mini-Haul C machine accepts the more compact pans which have
a load capacity of approximately 2 yards or 4,000 lbs.
efficiency of our machines to use our Dirt Pans is in
the design. The stationary lift pins on each side allows
the operator to quickly and easily load and unload. Their
shape is contoured to the shape of our machines for a
smooth, stable and safe ride during transport. They are
flat on the bottom to rest safely on flat ground and flared
on the top for easier filling and dumping. Also, as they
are raised up in the dump position, they can be used to
spread the dirt as it is being dumped directly back into
the gravesite. The design of our Dirt Pans allows our
machines to load, unload, fill, store, dump and spread
That efficiency will eliminate the need for a skid steer
to reload dirt at the drop site, it eliminates the need
for a backhoe to backfill and will keep a clean and dirt
free gravesite for the set-up of the services. It will
also drastically reduce the costs of that equipment which
would normally be incurred with other gravesite dig systems.
Our Dirt Pans are designed and fabricated for our machines
to support the time and labor cost savings to our customers
of our "Mini-Haul System".
The Flat Bed is an accessory with a multi-purpose design.
Fabricated with heavy gauge steel, they are custom made and
sized to fit according to the Mini-Haul machine they are meant
to be implemented with. The surface of the flat bed is made
of tread plate to give a somewhat non-skid surface (tie down
straps should always be used when moving the machine or transporting
materials). Stake pockets align the sides of the Flat Bed
to give our customers the option to install custom rails for
hauling more upright materials.
storage compartment designed into our Flat Bed can be
used for hauling tools or supplies from the maintenance
building to a specific job site on the grounds. The door
of the compartment is made to open either on the ground
or while it is still loaded on a machine. It is also made
to allow access to the entire storage compartment and
comes with a locking latch to be able to store and lock
valuable tools and supplies.
Removable, adjustable shelves can be used inside the storage
compartment to utilize space for hauling tools and supplies.
The Flat Bed has the same stationary lifting pins that
are standard on all of our accessories to quickly load
and unload from our machines. Our Flat Beds are designed
and fabricated for our machines to support the time and
labor cost savings to our customers of our "Mini-Haul
water tank accessory was designed for general use. The
frame is fabricated of heavy gauge steel and is contoured
to fit the tank and our Mini-Haul machines. The tank itself
is a 250 gallon durable plastic tank. It has a removable
lid for easy filling and has a ball valve at the bottom
for turning the water on and off. The accessory can be
fitted with high or low pressure pumps, hose reels, spray
booms or simple gravity fed watering. The water tank has
the same stationary lift pins as our other accessories
for quick and easy loading and unloading.
/ Vault Handler
The winch/ vault handler is another of our multi-purpose accessories.
It is a mounted to the frame with the ability to pull horizontally
or vertically. The winch/ vault handler will not interfere
with loading or unloading any of our other accessories. It
can be used to lift or transport a vault, pull out a piece
of equipment that is stuck in the mud or tow equiipment back
to the maintenance building.
only hydraulic industrial grade winches and depending on their
use, we can install 8,000-10,000-12,000 lb line pulls. They
come standard with a positive locking clutch to keep the winch
from jumping out of gear and losing a load. This is very important
when lifting or transporting a vault. The winch/ vault handler
is an accessory that is often overlooked when not needed,
but it is a real time saver when it is.
accessories can be designed to attatch to the front or rear
of mini-haul machines.
