Concrete hauling is easier with our Eco-Dumpster

Our bins lower to make concrete loading safe.

The Equipment

We use dump trucks for all concrete hauling jobs obviously  there is no room for wimpy pick up trucks here!

A one ton full size pick up truck can safely haul a maximum of 2,000 lbs of concrete however we safely haul almost 4x that!

In addition, our trucks have the ability to drop our Eco-Dumpster® bin onto the ground for this reason loading is easy and safe.

Wheelbarrows, skid steers and seasoned muscle are all used when the job dictates however   we have accomplished jobs in which wheelbarrows would not fit.  That’s right, good ol’ fashion muscle.

Safety is no joke, especially with concrete.

Proper protective equipment must be worn when handling concrete.  Sturdy leather gloves, dust masks, hard hats and eye protection are all a necessity.

 

Weight considerations when dealing with Concrete

20160127_112446.jpg

As much as we wish we could, there is no way one of our dumpster bins could be safely and legally filled entirely with concrete.

First and foremost concrete hauling is taxing on equipment.  

The sheer weight would make it impossible to transport a full bin of concrete over our roads, not to mention our truck would break faster than cellphone screen on a sidewalk.

Ok, Eco-Dumpster® so how much can you haul at a time?

Depending on the density of the concrete our driver will inform you what the crew can transport.  Usually 4 to 5 cubic yards.

San Francisco, special city  different approach to hauling.

As we know, a lot of things in San Francisco are a lot smaller than in other parts of the bay area.

Side yard entrances are not always there.  Gas meters and narrow entrances make this city especially challenging.  China town, is a neighborhood in San Francisco which has very limited parking and backyard access oftentimes limited.

Occasionally access was so limited the only way to haul was in 5 gallon buckets, no doubt tedious and grueling work.  If you require services which may require excessive labor or special considerations feel free to schedule a consultation for a price quote.  

 

Hauling concrete up stairs into one of our Eco-Dumpster® Bins.

In San Francisco sometimes access just isn’t there.

Side gate access was unavailable at this job site.

Every cement pier and concrete chunk had to be hauled away by hand or in 5 gallon buckets through the home.

What’s that tractor loader gonna do up those stairs?

A wheelbarrow or bobcat would have been useless in such situation.  We got the job done on time on budget and without damage to any property.

Heavy stubborn slabs of concrete were simply laying on top of the ground .  We used sledge hammers and our technique to get them broken down to size.

 

Concrete Removal by Bobcat Skid-steer

Have too much concrete, relatively level ground and 36 inches of access to your project?

Our small Bobcat loaders fit through a 36″ gate as long as there no other obstructions.

In cases like these our specialty skid steers can get in and retrieve concrete with a specialty grapple bucket and load the truck in a safe and efficient manner.

Our skid steers are equipped with grapple buckets to hold on to the concrete as we squeeze by side gates.

 

Pros and Cons of loading by machine

  •  Fast, a competent operator can move dirt without tiring.
  • Safe, given a competent operator.
  • Can save you $$$
  • Not easy on shrubbery or landscaping
  • Weighs 3,000 lbs but with a very small footprint.
  • Can’t climb stairs.
