Wendover Arm Trust

Why tracked dumpers are important to our project

Our organisation is a voluntary organisation involved in the restoration of the WENDOVER ARM of the GRAND UNION CANAL.

The Arm was built in 1794 and unfortunately abandoned in 1904. At that time the Arm was drained and became nothing more than a large dry ditch. This ditch became our only means of access for the purpose of getting plant to the work site, removing spoil and delivering materials

wendover arm trust

We have been working on the Arm since 1989 and use a considerable amount of mechanical plant. We started out using conventional wheeled dumpers which at the beginning were perfectly suitable for our needs.

However, after a while, the many journeys we had to make along the canal began to seriously damage the track and in times of wet weather made it impassable for wheeled vehicles. This meant that our project was in serious risk of having to be stopped until the weather improved and major repairs were carried out to the track. However this would only be a short term solution as the wheeled vehicles would again create the same problem when their use recommenced and the weather once again deteriorated.

The decision was therefore made to trial the use of tracked vehicles.

Although the plant is more costly it enabled the project to continue without pause whatever the weather and proved to be a great success, so much so that we have used tracked dumpers continuously for the past 8 years and very rarely use wheeled dumpers.

We find that the tracked dumpers provide the following advantages:

  • They do not sink into soft ground and create deep ruts as is the case with wheeled vehicles.
  • They are able to negotiate soft ground where wheeled vehicles would get stuck.
  • They have the effect of flattening the ground, especially when the ground is dry, thus creating a smooth track with no deep ruts.
  • Yes, the track does get very muddy, especially during periods of extreme wet weather, but the tracked dumpers have been able to cope with this and it has caused any delay in our work which would not have been the case if we had attempted to continue in the use of wheeled vehicles.
  • The bucket of the tracked dumpers may be not quite so versatile for tipping as those of a conventional wheeled swivel dumper but we have not found this to be a problem as there has always been ways to overcome this small disadvantage.
  • Having said that, we have found that the carrying ability of the tracked dumpers have been in many cases superior to that of the wheeled dumpers.

The use of tracked dumpers has been very important to the successful continuation of our work and has certainly proven that the decision to use tracked rather than wheeled vehicles was correct and has been fully justified.
