Slinger Truck, available in Lake Cowichan, Nanaimo and Victoria

Slinger Services

Slinger trucks are commonly used for projects requiring precision placement of materials in hard-to-reach areas, such as over fences, down steep slopes, and on the inside and outside of foundations. Places a normal dump truck could not access.

Slingers accurately launch streams of aggregates or soil at high speeds from a hopper body into a specified location.


Our operators use a radio-remote-controlled variable-speed conveyor belt system that can rotate in any direction to dump, spread, or ‘throw’ aggregate up to 100 feet away from the truck.


Volume Calculator

If you are unsure of how much material your project requires, this tool can help.

Bulk material is ordered by the cubic yard (27 cubic feet), so please enter values in feet and inches.

This calculation represents an approximation of the material required. Usually it is best to round up to the nearest yard. Totals obtained using this calculator are not guaranteed, please contact us for an estimation of your project requirements.

**Please note, resulting calculated volumes do not take into consideration compaction over time**
