- Loads one yard in just 2-minutes
- Cleaner operation than wet concrete blenders
- Reduced wear parts
- Swinging loading conveyor
An advanced material loading system built for the trailer-based concrete industry
SINGLE HOPPER OR DOUBLE HOPPER (CBL 1 or CBL 2)
units are available depending on your specific needs. Double hopper units have the ability to carry multiple aggregate mixes or to blend two different aggregates.
SWING ARM ACTION
allows the conveyor to move in a 120 degree arc and load trailers from different positions.
MULTIPLE TRAILER STAGING
of as many as five trailers. This can save time on a busy day. The swing-arm conveyor can move quickly between the pre-positioned trailers.
loads a yard of dry concrete material into a rotating drum trailer in two minutes.
DRY MATERIAL DISPENSING
into the mixing trailer drum yields a much cleaner concrete operation.
REDUCED WEAR PARTS
means over $1,500 in parts replacement cost savings per year over the old wet auger mixers
WIDE MATERIAL HOPPERS
gives the tractor operator a bigger target during loading and keeps the mess out of the yard. Piles of gravel on the ground are common with older systems.

The small concrete batching system with big results
Cart-Away concrete batching systems efficiently load 1-yard portable concrete mixer trailers in 2-minutes. Cart-Away experts have been designing and manufacturing concrete batching solutions for well over 15 years and offer a complete line of single and multi-hopper units for solving your material loading and concrete batching needs. Cart-Away batch plants are available in stationary or portable configurations depending upon your particular application. You can also choose from the portable low volume batch loaders to highly automated batching plants with multiple-position loading conveyors and computer controls.
Our batching systems are scaled to a size that will make loading mixer trailers convenient and efficient. We can even customize your concrete batching solution to load smaller transit mix trucks, along with your concrete mixing trailer fleet. Cart-Away CBL batching plants use a swinging load conveyor that is easily positioned so that multiple trailers can be serviced rapidly by a single operator. Automated batching systems are designed to batch up to 30 yards per hour and are calibrated for cement, sand and gravel batching accuracy.
Cart-Away portable batching plants include low volume loaders and remote batching solutions. These units typically are moved from job site to job site or are used in yards were space is a restriction and stationary units are not an option.
Our staff of concrete experts will assist you in choosing the appropriate batching system for your needs. We have assisted hundreds of operators to get up and running with a batch plant that will help them to be efficient and profitable. You will find that Cart-Away builds quality into every batching solution that we deliver and we strive to help you make money with every yard of concrete that you batch.
Hundreds of Cart-Away customers have proven that selling readimix concrete in small quantities is a very profitable business or addition to an existing business. Rental yards, Landscape Material yards, Hardware and Lumber yards find profits selling freshly batched concrete to their existing customer base. They also discover that having a concrete batching system for small loads brings them new customers as well.
Cart-Away’s small concrete batching and loading systems when teamed with Cart-Away mixing trailers or small readimix trucks have proven to be a highly profitable business and one you should explore.
Cart-Away is a Different Type of Batch System
Cart-Away systems are not like the full-sized concrete batching plants. We focus on a much smaller part of the concrete industry.
Consequently, our concrete batching plants are much smaller in both size and scope. A standard full-sized batch plant often has multiple cement silos (all of them 30+ feet tall),
Aggregate bins that hold hundreds of tons of material, make tens of thousands of yards per year, and service trucks in the 80,000 pound range. A Cart-Away concrete batching system is just the opposite. Cart-Away material loaders do each of the concrete material batch processes on a very small scale.
By comparison, Cart-Away uses just one small cement storage silo that could be placed behind or inside a standard shop building. The aggregate bins that hold the raw material are under 100 ton capacities, which is only about two truckloads of sand and gravel. The typical owner of a Cart-Away batching system will make money selling concrete to their customers. But production volumes will be considerably lower than a full-sized concrete batch plant that services big trucks. A typical year’s production for a successful Cart-Away system is just over 1000 yards as compared to 20,000 yards from a truck feeding batch plant. Perhaps the largest difference in the scale of the two systems is that the end user takes home a small load, usually one yard or less of concrete in a concrete mixer trailer that they tow behind their own truck. With Cart-Away there are no large noisy truck rumbling through a quiet neighborhoods. The small scale of the Cart-Away batching and delivery system has less impact on roads, sidewalks, and driveways.
With a Cart-Away concrete batching plant and by utilizing the portable concrete mixer trailers an underserved niche market is served and the community benefits from having access to good concrete at a fair price.
