Developed for use at landfills as an alternative daily cover, the Tarpomatic Automatic Tarping Machine (ATM) can also be used on newly graded and excavated sites that require immediate and/or temporary protection. It is a self-contained unit that enables various types of equipment, such as dozers, compactors and rubber tire loaders to hydraulically unroll and roll back up different fabric panels.

Each unit is custom-fitted to be lifted and transported by the blade of a dozer and offers quick and easy hook up. It uses a hydraulic drive motor and engaging system to wind and unwind the spool with variable speed control. Spools can be disconnected and reconnected to utilize one unit with multiple spools. Controls are mounted in the cab of the dozer to give the operator control of the engine, height of the spool, and forward/reverse rolling.

Utilizing the capabilities of the dozer, the operator also has control of the product's height and tilt. This allows for even tracking when winding and unwinding tarps on uneven terrain. Units are available in three different sizes to accommodate 40, 45, and 50-ft wide panels of various lengths.
