CON-E-CO Unveils New Self-Erecting LO-PRO 327D Decumlative Batch Plant at World of Concrete Exposition in Las Vegas

January 6, 2014

Plant features steel mat foundation, and travel in place dust system and water weigh batcher.

Blair, Neb. (December 19, 2013) – CON-E-CO, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, will unveil the CON-E-CO® LO-PRO® 327D batch plant on January 21, 2014 at theWorld of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas, Nev., booth N-1019. The LO-PRO 327D Decumlative batch plant offers several time- and labor-saving features, and delivers the proven performance inherent in all CON-E-CO batch plants.
“The new CON-E-CO LO-PRO 327D hydraulically self-erects, and offers many travel in place features; set-up time, labor, and material costs are, therefore, significantly reduced,” said Neil Smith, CON-E-CO general manager. “The plant’s design directly translates to enhanced productivity. Our mission is to listen and respond to the needs of ready-mixed concrete producers, and the 327D is the newest representation of that mission in action.”
The LO-PRO 327D self-erecting and self-leveling batch plant does not require a crane during installation. The plant can be erected on steel mats, eliminating the need for concrete foundations. It features large capacity (16 cubic yard) aggregate weighing bins with a low 10-foot, 7-inch charging height.  The available central dust control system (including the truck mixer dust shroud), and the optional frame-mounted water weigh batcher travel in place, and further eliminate the need for a crane.  In addition, the optional frame-mounted diesel generator travels in place, and a power supply at remote job sites is not required, eliminating the need for field electrical connections and additional freight.
“Faster set-up, and a range of options that fit the individual needs of our customers, is what the LO-PRO 327D is all about. We look forward to demonstrating its capabilities at World of Concrete,” said Smith.
