Mix handler

Company’s new all-wheel drive Crete Rod material handler delivers a 33-cu.-ft. payload to tight quarters with limited access, and across demanding terrains. The nimble, three-wheeled workhorse was designed from the ground up to overcome the limitations of using concrete buggies, pumps and skid steers for material hauling. A Tier 4 engine ensures low exhaust emissions, while a low discharge height eliminates nearly all splash for a cleaner pour with faster clean-up.

Measuring approximately 120 inches long by 54 inches wide and 59 inches tall, the 2,400-lb. Crete Rod serves as a low-profile equipment option. A 78.5-in. wheelbase, coupled with all-wheel hydro-static drive and twin locking motors, plus hydraulic cylinder driven rack and pinion steering, deliver stability, maneuverability, efficiency and versatility. The Crete Rod moves transfers mix loads across varied terrains and in restricted spaces found on indoor or outdoor construction sites, bridge construction, and landscape projects. A 3-cylinder, 4-cycle, liquid-cooled Kubota tier-4 diesel engine and variable displacement axial piston hydraulic pumps provide ample power. — CreteRod, Decatur, Ind., 847/857-1026; www.CreteRod.com
