TRACKING PADS Tracking Pads are heavy-duty mats made from recycled rubber that can be laid down at construction entrances and exits, and essentially remove mud, sediment, and other debris from vehicles and equipment capturing debris before it can be tracked out onto the roadway. Each mat measures 12 feet by 12 feet and can be laid side by side to fit the width of any entrance. Tracking Pads are easily transportable from site to
ROCKLAND MFG. The Rockland Silt Sock Roller—which was designed by Frank Yeager, a seasoned excavator operator—makes installing silt sock easy, especially in difficult terrain. The Silt Sock Roller installs more sock because it uses the hydraulics of the excavator to roll and unroll silt sock, placing it where you want it the first time. The bolt-on header plate allows the roller to be positioned perpendicular or parallel to the excavator stick depending on site

JRM CHEMICAL JRM Chemical’s linear anionic polymers (PAM) are available in powders, emulsions, and tablets to reduce soil erosion and treat turbid water. They are also used as a tackifier with mulch and straw. Low application rates of 4 ppm or less will reduce turbidity in discharge water and reduce suspended particles and colloidal solutions. The crosslinked polymers (SAP) hold moisture and are used as an amendment when planting trees, shrubs, and ground cover. Crosslinked polymers reduce plant waterings by 50%, last three to five years in the soil, and are ideal for remote
