Traditionally concrete plants are large machines requiring one or more cranes for install as well as a large crew of men making the cost to move or relocate a concrete plant very expensive. As the industry developed several manufacturers began selling more portable concrete plants that would be setup and taken down much more easily than the older models, but most still required a crane, concrete foundations and other specialized lifting equipment. The immediate downside to most of these more portable machines a proportional decrease in hourly productions rates as the were made smaller. The Model 275 uses a variety of innovative systems and strategies that enable this mobile concrete plant to offer operators one of the highest hourly production rates available from a dry mix or ready mix concrete batch plant.
According to statements from company officials the greatest level of interest in the portable concrete plant comes from a growing group of concrete contractors looking to improve their profit margins and chance of getting a bid by deploying the highly mobile 275 concrete plant directly to the project site. Other interested customers include individuals and companies just considering entering the market and even traditional ready mix companies trying to gain a competitive edge in their area by offering customers the ability to deploy the model 275 mobile concrete plant directly to a jobsite. “Resistance to our concrete plant usually comes from the large and established companies that have plants all over a city or area” said Matthew Gladen, the Managing Partner of FESCO Direct LLC. He continued to explain “Usually those companies are either loyal to a brand or just have so many concrete plants sitting around they think they have the advantage over everyone else...”, “They are learning slow but sure large projects want on site concrete and we have the best concrete plant for that.”
The model 275 mobile concrete plant is superior to other portable concrete plants because it does not require a concrete pier or foundation for setup and through the use of hydraulics the plant can be erected in minutes by a two man crew without the use of a crane or other lifting equipment. As previously mentioned the model 275 concrete plant uses an innovative batching method that enables the material to weight, discharge and charge into a mixer truck in a very short time that includes a pre blend of the sand and other aggregate. The use of weighed water and gravity fed water and hydraulic motors enables speed and flow control over the concrete plants productions rates not available from electrically operated concrete batch plants.
