Flood Control Equipment: Instee Levee Builder®
How it Works:
The Instee Levee Builder® is a skid-steer loader attachment that creates Fast-Built Levees®. The Instee Levee Builder® has a powerful hydraulic motor that, like many skid-loader attachments, runs off of the auxiliary hydraulics of the skid-steer loader. This hydraulic motor turns an auger. Furthermore, this hydraulic motor is reversible and can be reversed in the event something jams and stalls the auger so as to easily unclog and resume levee building. This auger is an easy-change auger in the event there is a need for replacement and is hard-surfaced for extreme wear resistance. It is this auger that conveys the sand or dirt out of the Instee Levee Builder’s hopper through a sock-holder chute, on which the plastic poly Fast-Built Levee® tube is loaded. The auger is responsible for high efficiency filling of the Fast-Built Levee tubes to create Fast-Built Levees®. The Instee Levee Builder® is quickly and easily loaded by hand with a specialized plastic poly tube either from roll or folded cartridge onto its sock-holder. After loading the specialized plastic poly tube an iris cone tensioner is installed to control the tension and rate at which the specialized plastic poly tube is filled so as to become Fast-Built Levee®. Loading the poly, installing the iris tensioner cone, and producing Fast-Built Levee® is fast and easy and requires little training beyond experience operating skid-steer loaders.
