Total yards to be produced by the C.U.B.E. = 98 yards
The reason for the use of the C.U.B.E. was to reduce the cost of ready-mix at this remote site. The contractor did the excavating and forming with four men and intended on using all four for the concrete mixing and distribution portion of the project.
As it turned out, he only needed three men for the ready-mix work. He used two skid steers and one backhoe for raw material feeding and concrete placement. This allowed him to keep a continual flow of duties going all day. On the first portion of the project, the crew mixed and placed 48-yards in a day and a half of work.
The contractor reports:
“The C.U.B.E. really surprised us on how it just kept cranking out the material for us. We had tractors going every which way and the C.U.B.E. never slowed us down.”
