This is the Fast-Way to produce concrete. Whether you need to set up on a small mobile job or stationary site, the Fast-Way self-erecting cement silo is the answer.
The Fast-Way 275-barrel portable cement silo is self-contained. It is specially equipped with a special designed trailer and hydraulic system, which allows the silo to lie down during transport. Once at the job site, the self-contained hydraulic system will erect the silo without crane assistance. After the self-erecting cement silo has been erected the trailer can be disconnected by removing a few bolts and unhooking four hydraulic quick couplers.
Towing the self-erecting vertical portable cement silo at highway speeds can be done easily with a one-ton pickup. Since the silo and trailer fall within the legal length and width boundaries, no oversize permits are required to tow them. In addition to transport, the silo and trailer come completely equipped with trailer brakes, tail lights, stop lights and signal lights.
Since all the components stay intact while in transport, there is no major installation on the job site. Once the silo is on location, if your silo is powered by a gas or diesel motor you can erect the silo. If your silo is powered by electricity you will need to hook up your electrical to erect the silo. You are now ready to produce concrete with your Fast-Way portable cement silo and batch plant.
