Concrete conveyor

Concrete conveyor

Postby Mark X on Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:22 am

I am looking to compare notes with anyone that has used a conveyor for mixed concrete.

I have used one that I built three yrs ago which attaches in place of the chutes, driven with a 5hp honda and 16 ft long. On the end there is a hopper with a 5 inch flexible pipe 4 ft long. I can reach approx 28 ft from the rear wheels for slabs on grade and can reach 6 ft high for walls. Production is about 3/4 yd per minute. Contactors love this unit as it saves them an immense amount of labour and makes for a quicker pour which also gets me to the next job sooner.

Any ideas or experience would be appreciated.

Sounds like a good idea. Can you post a pic of it?
