They work well if set up correctly, but all too often, you spend all of your day adjusting and correcting the set-up because the sections have moved or jammed or stopped, or some pillock has put too much on in one spot.
I'm not sure about 20 tonnes per hour. That may well be achievable in 'test conditions' in a nice, dry, warm laboratory shifting sand or gravel,, but out on site, I'd reckon on nearer 10-12 tonnes per hour, and it's a sure thing that the excavator can work helluva lot faster than the mini-conveyors can carry away the spoil.
