The new style, concrete mixing trailer, pioneered by Cart-Away™ in the late 80s has all but taken the market from the old style trailers.
The concrete is completely mixed and requires no remixing at the jobsite. In short, with the new style revolving drum trailers, you get true ‘ready mix.’ In the past, using old style tub trailers, the quality of concrete was such that the market was limited mostly to do-it-yourselfers.
Today’s new drum style trailers mean that most of the business is contractors and municipal users. The latest study of the concrete trailer industry indicates that over 60% of today’s concrete trailer users are contactors due to the mixing capabilities in a Cart-Away™ mixing trailer.
