Skid Steer Bucket Concrete Mixer

A skid-steer bucket concrete mixer is a skid-steer forklift attachment that combines the benefits of a loader and a concrete mixer into a single piece of equipment. With this innovative and compact piece of equipment, your company can combine the benefits of a loader and a concrete mixer into a single device. This one of a kind concrete mixer allows you to produce thoroughly mixed concrete quickly and efficiently without the assistance of a third party and with no time delays. It also allows you to transport the concrete to pour sites located in areas too small for larger concrete mixers to reach.

A skid steer-bucket concrete mixer features a design that allows it to be lowered like a bucket to scoop sand and gravel. The mixer can then be tilted back into the upright position, exposing a bag splitter that allows you to break bags of cement and pour their contents directly into the unit. You can then add water, mix it with the sand, gravel, and cement, have concrete ready to pour in a matter of minutes. The skid-steer bucket concrete mixer discharges its contents either through a chute on the side, or by being tilted downward. This allows the unit greater flexibility in reaching hard to get to places.

Skid steer bucket concrete mixers provide work crews with an economic alternative to manual loading that can lead to back injuries. They save a great deal of time for work crews who normally have to wait on ready-mix companies to bring in trucks. It is much better to get the job done right then and there without having to depend on a third party that may actually charge you for more materials and services than you actually need. Because ready-mix companies tend to avoid selling small quantities of concrete, contractors often have to meet minimum volume requirements when ordering concrete, plus they have to pay for the labor.

With a smaller, bucket concrete mixer you can control yourself, you can pay for only the materials that you need. Existing work crews on site can handle the mixing, and you don't have to wait for delivery. Adding the bucket concrete mixer to your skid-steer, you can transform an existing piece of equipment with a simple attachment that minimizes procurement costs and better enables you to meet project deadlines.

A number of features enable skid-steer bucket concrete mixers to function in a fast, ergonomic, and accurate manner. A new, improved design uses a revolving paddle to mix cement. This method is much more efficient than the use of augers and produces a more blended constituency. These paddles are driven by a hydraulic motor that attaches to your skid-steer's hydraulic system through a chain and sprocket drive. This eliminates the need for a separate power source, and it allows the skid-steer itself to power the concrete mixer. The chain and sprocket drive also allow for paddle reversal and protect the skid-steer bucket from shock.

While skid-steer bucket concrete mixers are made for cement mixing, not mixing grout, they can be adapted to mixing grout if you incorporate 3/8" of pea gravel into the mix design. The total grout or concrete mixing capacity of the skid steer bucket is 9 cubic feet. These attachments are intended for mounting on universal quick-tach skid-steers rated at 1600lbs or greater.

  1. very useful information given. The most prominent feature of the mini loaders are very small and not of the series. In this way, tight spaces very quickly job finishes.bobcat kiralamakiralık bobcat
