What is a Stone Slinger?

Stone slingers are some of the latest technological developments in the construction field. The high-tech piece of machinery is most often used for where a high level of accuracy is necessary, such as in creating recreation centers, golf courses, and ball parks. The machine looks like a large truck with a trough on the back and uses a live bottom system that controls a conveyor belt.

How Does a Stone Slinger Work?

It’s praised for its accuracy and uses its conveyor belt to transport material off the back of the truck directly to its desired location. This machine is preferred by contractors as it requires fewer laborers to transfer material because the stone slinger moves material itself. This cuts down on project times and keeps costs low. With a universal drive, live bottom system, and conveyor belt, it was designed to handle rough construction work and heavy materials.
