|PRECAST AND PRESTRESS
Prestress bridge beams
The Maxon Agitor’s high discharge point and the slide frame, installed between the truck chassis and the Agitor allow it to reach wide and high forms. When equipped with a special agitator, the Agitor is the best unit for transporting and placing SCC concrete for prestress and precast applications.
Precast Railroad Ties
Equipment shown at left includes a Maxon Agitor mounted on a special rail mounted self propelled chassis supplied by Hamilton Equipment. The complete unit travels over a precast form bed for pouring concrete railroad ties. The complete system can be lifted off one bed, and placed over another. Production increased significantly as a result of the self propelled Agitor.
In addition to conventional truck mounted Agitors, Maxon offers custom equipment configurations for special placing on prestress projects. Shown at left is a Maxon Agitor mounted on a customized truck chassis, complete with radial stacking belt conveyor. The unit is ideal for high and wide forms requiring long reach.
Maxon now offers the Mobile Agitor, a complete unitized self contained 12 cubic yard concrete transporter for placing concrete in prestress applications. The unit is designed to offer greater placing capabilities, with longer reach, higher discharge height, and greater haul capacity.
