USA: UMI TrashCat Skimmer Cleans Up Baltimore Harbor Mess After Massive Storms

When severe storms dumped over 6″ of rain on the Baltimore harbor area recently, the resulting floods carried tons of logs, trash and debris into Baltimore’s scenic famous Inner Harbor.

The skimmer shown has three separate conveyors:

-the articulated loading conveyor (which can be adjusted to accommodate picking up long logs),

-the central storage conveyor,

-the offloading conveyor.
