CON-E-CO, an Oshkosh Corporation company, introduced the LO-PRO 250 mobile ready-mix concrete batch plant. This is the smallest and least expensive LO-PRO batch plant, and it was designed with input from ready-mix concrete producers from across the country.

“The LO-PRO 250 was engineered with ready-mix producers in mind,” said Neil Smith, CON-E-CO general manager. “The plant has excellent capabilities, yet it has a smaller footprint and is ideal for use as a mobile satellite plant. For the producer that demands flexibility and an excellent value, the LO-PRO 250 demands closer inspection.”

The LO-PRO 250 features a 250-barrel in-truss cement storage bin that is expandable to 550 barrels as output requirements increase. To help meet air quality standards, an overhead truck dust collection system recycles material directly back into the cement batcher.

The LO-PRO 250 batch plant also offers an additional 400- or 565-barrel capacity cement storage component that mounts directly on the plant. It also features a “blending” cement batcher, as well as a “live bottom” aggregate batcher for ready-mix quality. As with all LO-PRO models, the 250 allows for easy, 180-degree mixer truck charging access.

“In today’s economy, smaller and more nimble can sometimes be the best solution. That’s what the LO-PRO 250 is all about,” Smith added.
