The silt fence installer lets you place silt fence fabric from 30 to 48 in. in height and 500 ft. in length while going forward, plus provides the ability to remove obstacles and clear debris in one efficient operation. The unit trenches up to 16 in. deep, and installs silt fence alongside the excavator. The "Sidetool-capable" excavator is able to perform more than 20 functions, and is easily converted back to its original configuration once silt fence installation is complete.
