Soil Digger

The Soil Digger’s digging system exists of a pre-digging system that rotates during digging in order for a small layer of soil to be created on the floor, which the soil digger can pick up. The small layer will be brought to the central conveyor belt using two augers. The central conveyor belt has buckets that pick up the soil and elevate it to the small conveyor belt that brings the soil on top of the wall. This conveyor belt can be rotated under the central conveyor belt so the soil can be transported to the machine’s left or right side.

The soil digger drops the soil on a conveyor belt mounted on the wall between the bunkers. This conveyor belt will transport the soil over the wall to the end of the bunker, from where it can be transported to further processing.

When the Soil Digger gets to the end of the bunker, it will be switched off using an end switch. The end switch will run to a mechanical stop mounted to the bunker’s wall. The Soil Digger can be driven out of the bunker using the control panel. When the Soil Digger is out of the bunker, it can be driven to the another bunker.
