Flexamat® is shipped on flatbeds. Approximately 4600 square feet can be hauled on each truck. When possible, spot the rolls to improve efficiency.
An excavator is the best machine to lift and install Flexamat® rolls. Backhoes can be used as well but an excavator is more efficient and performs better.
Often it works well for a large excavator to lift and set the Flexamat® rolls in place. Then, use a small excavator to work in the channel to unroll the roll. A smooth bucket on the excavator works the best. If a "toothed" bucket is the only option, care must be taken not to gouge the material.
