Whether you’re looking to install mulch in a new playground, backfill your pool, or complete another residential or commercial landscaping project, stone slinger trucks – more commonly known as “stone slingers” – are the perfect high-quality, cost-effective solution.
What is a Stone Slinger?
A stone slinger is a construction truck used to “sling” or place stone, sand, mulch, soil, dirt, and other aggregates. With a stone slinger you can place materials in precise positions and reach hard to access areas.
What Projects Can I Use a Stone Slinger For?
Stone slingers have a wide application of usage; some of the projects that a stone slinger might be helpful for include:
- Installing mulch on a playground.
- Backfilling your new in-ground pool or infilling an old one.
- Developing a new gravel driveway.
- Adding beach sand to your beach.

Why Should I Use a Stone Slinger?
Although the technology is relatively new, stone slingers are versatile, cost efficient, and precise in a way that previous solutions were not. The savings that result from using a stone slinger instead of manual labor can be passed on to the customer to make sure you’re saving money. Stone slingers can also deliver materials with more precision than dump trucks and fit into smaller spaces.
Stone slingers are also able to transport materials down or up steep slopes, where it would be nearly impossible to use a wheelbarrow or other equipment. Additionally, stone slingers can transport materials over fences, which would usually significantly limit the ability to move materials.
Aside from these situations, additional benefits of using stone slingers are:
- Ability to sling material up to 90 feet.
- Ability to efficiently use the material with less waste.
- Rapid placement and spreading of the material.
