Concrete Equipment


The Bobcat concrete pump attachment is designed for contractors who work in residential areas with confined yards. Either side of the concrete pump attaches to the Bobcat loader for better positioning. The hoses are then connected and the concrete mix is fed into the hopper and pumped to the jobsite. The pumping hoses can be routed through small openings, under decks, through bushes and around trees and buildings.

Owners Brett Pomerleau and Tony Woolhouse of Concrete Masonry Unlimited and Northwest Masonry of Brooklyn Park, Minn., purchased the attachment for their business at a time when they couldn't get a pump truck to a new home site because of road weight restrictions. “Using the concrete pump attachment and our own boom truck to move the hose, we pumped more than 60 cubic yards of concrete for footings and a poured wall foundation,” Pomerleau says. “The job took a little longer than using a big pump truck, but we were able to complete the work.”

General Equipment

Designed to follow random crack patterns in asphalt and concrete surfaces, General Equipment's CS8 random crack saw utilizes 8-inch diameter, dry cut-type diamond blades to produce smooth-sided cuts for proper crack-filling procedures. Power is supplied by an 11-hp Honda engine equipped with a Cyclone-type air filter system for maximum protection against fine-grained dust contamination. A center-mounted blade configuration allows the CS8 to center pivot about its own axis to more easily follow random crack patterns.

Wacker's internal vibration heads are designed to combine the best properties of the proven round head with the square-head technology to create the best results in concrete consolidation and high-speed concrete liquification. The hybrid design gives the advantage of placing the weight at the bottom of the head. The eccentric weight was optimized to maximize the performance of the hybrid shape, increasing the amplitude of the head. By increasing the amplitude, the concrete is more easily liquified, allowing the stiff concrete to settle into place and become consolidated.

Cart-Away Concrete

The Cart-Away Universal Batching Equipment, or CUBE, is a concrete-batching system designed to allow users the flexibility to control most aspects of jobsite ready-mix production. With a 1½-yard mixing capacity, the CUBE can produce 6 to 8 yards of concrete per hour in a specific mix design. The loading, mixing and dispensing of the concrete materials are all completed inside of the box, reducing the amount of equipment needed at the jobsite.

According to Duane Colson, a general contractor with Colson Construction in Lighthouse Point, Fla., the size of the CUBE is a real benefit on the jobsite. “The only way we could get concrete was with an on-site mixer,” he says. “We've poured 300 yards at this remote resort site with the CUBE and have 200 to go. I could never have done this with a 1/3-yard machine.”

Stone Construction Equipment

Stone Construction Equipment now offers a lighter-weight 36-inch model to its Smooth Operator power trowel line. The CF36L, weighing 23 pounds less than the standard 36-inch CF364, is well suited for basement work because its lighter weight makes it easier to carry down stairs. It is also suited for jobs where the concrete hasn't cured enough to support a heavier trowel. The CF36L features a 36-inch working width, Stone's patented DynaClutch safety system and the optional patented ProPitch quick blade-leveling system for fine-tuned blade adjustment.

To function properly, power trowels must maintain a precise perpendicular relationship between the gearbox's output shaft and blade arms. Once that relationship is compromised, the trowel will vibrate and/or wobble. MBW designed its walk-behind power trowels with the industry's heaviest bearings, output shafts, gears, spiders and blade arms to maintain this critical relationship. MBW offers 24-, 36- and 46-inch trowels.
