BEDDING BOX BASICS AND HOW THEY WORK

What is a Bedding Box?

A bedding box is a large, fabricated steel container that holds backfill material contractors use during underground pipe installation or on general construction sites. The backfill materials used in pipeline construction often include aggregate/crushed rock and sand. Backfill in a trench is designed to absorb some of the loads passed through the pipe to the trench sidewalls as the pipe deflects. The first purpose of a bedding box is to reduce backfill material waste on the jobsite. The second purpose of a bedding box is to increase productivity by setting up a rhythm for the excavator operator by giving him or her an endless supply of bedding material in easy reach. Bedding boxes come in different sizes and duty strengths to match the work being done and the excavator being used on the jobsite.

 

How does a Bedding Box work?

The suggested procedure for using a bedding box involves the wheel loader and excavator operators. It is the responsibility of the wheel loader operator to fill the bedding box from a stockpile of material and keep it filled while the excavator operator is working to create an endless supply of material in easy reach. It is the excavator operator’s responsibility to position the bedding box so it can be dug out of easily while giving access to the wheel loader operator to continually fill it. The excavator operator can move an empty box by using the bucket of the excavator and the walk bar mounted on the bedding box. When the bedding box is full it should be skidded or pushed along the trench. The bedding box is a tool, and it should be used the in the way that it was designed to be used. Careless use will cause damage and cost you money.
