No, we typically load a mixer truck, all of ours are rear discharge type mixers.
Yea i could get more shots of the loader...

I have seen the front discharge mixers, i like the idea of them, but this company just dont use them...

Ill see if i can get a few more pics of the loader in the next few days.

We live in a semi rural area and ALL mixers are 4wd and front discharge....go to the burbs and it is all rear discharge street trucks where they only dump into pumpers. On the highway there a few 20 yard trailer units...pretty cool. Concrete is the gangster controlled market up here. Highly consolidated into a few BIG companies....no little independents at all.

That's a pretty sweet plant for it's size. Easily portable as well.

the plant that i run, is not at all easily portable, they claim it is. Only due to the fact of the quick disconnect airline and electrical lines.

The one picture i put up of our new conoco, that is a truly portable plant, we moved it from levelland texas to lubbock texas, in right at a week.
It poured concrete in levelland wednesday. We tore down, trucked everything to lubbock and set it up. It was ready to pour concrete again Thursday morning.

You're even color coordinated to the plant with those matching Frye's. Nice thread and photos!

Have you experience mixing asphalt too?

Very cool, something different! I love going to the big aggregate supply yards and just watching the huge machines at work.

FRYE's?
Slightly confused by what your calling a frye?

I have a few more pictures.
I read on HEF that it was possible to reverse the mold board of a blade, so i gave it a shot. (thanks to randy kreig for the idea)

Start.


Stop.


Stopped and took a few pics on the way back around.

Blade out to the side, in the reverse position here.


An idea of the clearence between the tire and the corner of the cutting edge.





I had the idea stashed away in my head, and finally took some time to try it out.
I got out of the cab probably 10 times to make sure everything was goin to clear properly.
