U-Cart became Cart-Away
In the early 1970’s people called a concrete trailer a U-cart. Then everything changed in the 1990’s when the modern Cart-Away portable concrete mixer was introduced. The U-cart system used a simple tub on wheels that would be filled with wet concrete for delivery. The Cart-Away mixing trailer changed the quality of the concrete mix, extended distance and broadened the possibilities. Over the years as public’s perception of U-cart became Cart-Away, others joined the trailered concrete industry, but the Cart-Away trailer remains the highest quality and most used mid-sized portable concrete mixer in north America.
The Cart-Away team of experts have been serving this industry since 1993 and have been a big part of changing the market and watching as the tub trailer from U-cart became Cart-Away trailers as the best way to deliver concrete in trailer.
Side-by-Side Comparison of Concrete Trailers:
The most important thing to understand is that you make money selling or delivering concrete by capacity and staying under road load ratings. The more concrete that you can safely move in your portable concrete trailer the more money you can make per load. So as you compare different styles of mixing trailers you must compare the unloaded weight as well as the capacity. To insure that you are getting the honest story, always ask for a weigh-master certificate from the manufacturer of the equipment.
