Thought of a melamine trough. then use 2x6 slats side by side, kina like a roll top desk with rope running through holes on two sides to make a conveyor. Then motor to run it. Could be costly, maybe to much friction, how to hook up motor.

any ideas? prefer good ones
I bought a conveyorease conveyor for moving dirt out of my crawl space... it was only $2100 and I now use it for putting my firewood as well. Check it out conveyorease.com it was delivered it right to my house.

Re: home-made conveyor or ??? for basement dirt.


mae-ling,
You didn't say how much dirt and concrete or where it has to go once at top of stairs. My point being, are you going to transfer it to buckets and carry it outside?

Do you have any basement windows? A conveyor out a basement window could go high enough to drop the debris directly into a wheelbarrow.

I recently shingled my roof and built 2x6 side rails and a cart on top with wheels. A pulley at the top and I pulled it up with my lawn tractor. Look strange but delivered 2 bundles of shingles very easily and zero rental. No room to have lumber yard deliver them up top.

It's a 4 year old thread, resurrected by a newbie.

I thought that it was Mrs. Frosty , wearing a white bikini, laying on a snow bank.
