Stone Champion Silo Mixers
The Stone Champion Silo Mixer line is comprised of two models — SM1200 and SM2000 — with capacities of 12 cubic feet and 20 cubic feet, respectively. The Silo mixers provide maximum productivity for large commercial and industrial jobs, both with silos or where the productivity afforded by the larger capacities is a requirement. The mixers are designed for jobs where mortar, grout, plaster and color mixers are supplied in pre-blended bulk bags. The mixers include adjustable legs to position them within any silo footprint. They are designed with several patented features including Stone’s Power Blend system, removable seals and bearing housing, and the seals and bearing configuration.
The C.U.B.E., or Cart-Away Universal Batching Equipment, is designed to allow users to control most aspects of jobsite ready-mix production. With a 1½-yard mixing capacity, the C.U.B.E. can produce 6 to 8 yards of concrete per hour. The loading, mixing and dispensing of the concrete materials are all completed inside the box, reducing the amount of equipment at the jobsite. The C.U.B.E. reduces the high cost of short-load fees and employee downtime associated with using a ready-mix truck. It is designed for construction applications where ready-mix is needed for several projects over an extended period of time. The C.U.B.E. is simple to transport by truck or trailer because it weighs only 3,500 pounds and is only 48 inches wide.
