HALTEC / sandbag-filling-machine


The HALTEC is powered by a combustion engine, so it is independent of the infrastructure and energy supply on-site. It only needs to be maneuvered into heaped sand and then it begins to fill the sandbags almost automatically.
The ergonomic working height makes the serial operation of sandbag filling much easier. The hydraulic flap mechanism allows to fill the sandbags in a simple way. By pushing a kick-down-pedal it is easy to attach the sandbags and take them off again. In contrast to the large sand filling machines, the Haltec is able to utilize wet sand as well as dry sand.
