Dirt, Sand, Gravel, & Rock

Knodel Contractors has hauling mass quantities down to a science, thanks to our high performing Side Dump Industries trailers and highly experienced crew. Our side dump trains have up to four times the hauling capacity of a single dump truck. The fifty degree dumping angle means we don’t spend time shoveling out the beds, and we can place dirt, sand, gravel or rock on the run. All this means we do more in less time at a greater cost savings. How’s that for a load off your mind?

I had a pleasure lake project in mind and had called several contractors. The other contractors had plenty of excuses about the conditions not being ideal, too wet, etc. I had begun work on the lake and needed a contractor to finish it out to a proper depth on the deep side with larger excavating equipment. Kelly and his crew came in and did exactly what I needed. They deepened the one-acre circumference lake, hauled in beach sand and rock all around the circumference. The thing I really like is that Kelly was willing to do what I needed…no ego involved. Yet he was great about offering up his wisdom and advice when he thought appropriate; which I appreciated. Kelly Knodel is flexible and certainly not afraid to tackle anything. He had previously done some stock dam reconstruction and restoration for me. I would absolutely recommend Knodel Contractors to anyone.
