Our Portable Mixers are Perfect for your Growing Business
“I never dreamed that so many people would be interested in purchasing concrete from us. We have gained new customers and increased business by offering U-cart Concrete from Cart-Away.”
“At first I was nervous about being in the U-cart concrete business, but with Cart-Away training it has been a wonderful experience. The Cart-Away system is great.. it really gets people in the door!”
“Our Cart-Away trailer works all day, every day on repair jobs. I wish we had another one.”
“The Cart-Away Mixer really surprised us on how it just kept cranking out the concrete. We poured 48 yards in a day and a half”
“The introduction of Cart-Away Concrete to our customers has filled a major void. The speed and high quality of the concrete equipment has amazed them. The plant has increased foot traffic and profits. I can honestly say that the placement of our plant has revitalized our business and encouraged our past customers to return and new customers to come take a look. Cart-Away has been our #1 guide through our learning process.”
“Besides the revenues to our operation from selling U-cart concrete, we have brought in many new customers that now also rent our equipment and buy other merchandise from our store. The mixer trailers set us apart from others and our customers love them. Do-it-yourself, professional contractors, city and counties all have become loyal customers. It also turns out to be a great addition to our business without having to add extra staff.”
How does it work?
- We take all major credit cards
- You can fill out a credit application to establish a 30-day term.
These terms are available when purchasing parts. We do not offer these terms on equipment purchases.
You can arrange your own freight or let Cart-Away handle the shipping.
- Cart-Away experts have field experience with Sunrise, U-cart, U-cart of America and Trailer Haul systems. We are happy to talk you through almost any problem that you can have.
There are many reasons supporting the need for this type of system. Number one is that they require less maintenance than a wet system. The fact that the material is not mixed on the machine itself tells us that the abrasive wear on augers, shoes, bearings, and shafts no longer is a problem. The wash down after every load is no longer needed because 100% of the material is in the trailer. The operator can simply set the calibrated time and walk away. The belt will stop when the appropriate amount of material is delivered, and the valve will shut down the water at the prescribed time. Because the belt is empty there is no wash down required.
The pivot is available so that you can stage many trailers in place and load them consecutively in line. The older U-cart auger system did not pivot for staging multiples of trailers.
No, the controls on a dry belt loader and the controls on a wet auger system are virtually the same. The dry belt loader also uses the same 200-barrel silo. The footprint of the machinery is the same as the wet systems. The only difference is that the material is loaded into the trailers dry rather than wet. And you can make more money with mixing trailers.
No, the tub trailer that started the U-cart business model requires the ready-mix to be loaded wet. The mixing trailers were specifically designed to mix aggregate, cement, and water in the drum and can be loaded from a dry belt loader.
Yes, the U-cart systems that use an auger are still available from Cart-Away. We build the best quality wet auger system in our industry. We will be happy to quote you on either system. The wet auger blender can be optioned to load the 1-yard concrete mixing trailers as well.
Mixing Trailers continually mix the concrete like a ready-mixed truck does as it is being towed down the road. When you get to the job site, the concrete has not settled and is fully mixed. These trailers can be towed many miles from the place where they receive the concrete. The mixing trailers are also completely hydraulically driven. Meaning that they mix, discharge, and tilt with levers rather than hand pumps.
In areas where the population is dense and close to your concrete operation, or where there are many U-cart ready-mix plants located, the ST-125s are sufficient. However, you will get more outlying business with mixing trailers whether or not you are batching wet concrete or mixing dry materials.
