The Mobile 5 batch plant is the newest portable transit mix plant to be introduced by RexCon. Ideal for remote job sites, the Mobile 5 is a single trailer configuration which can easily be set up with a front end loader. No crane is required. Simply pick up the cement section of the Mobile 5 with the front end loader, and the front hinged support legs fold down and bolt in place.

The Mobile 5 features a 225 barrel (42 ton [38 t]) storage silo with a gravity feed cement surge hopper. Two 6 in. (15 cm) recirculating screw augers continually replenish the cement surge hopper. When the surge hopper is full, the excess cement flows back into the silo where it is recirculated with the screws. The surge hopper capacity always assures two loads of cement are ready for batching, according to the manufacturer.

A low profile aggregate bin enables direct ramping for material loading. The 3-compartment aggregate bin has more than 16 cu. yds. (25 ton [23 t]) of storage capacity. Standard loading height is just over 13 ft. (4.1 m), and loading width over 10 ft. (2.8 m) on the individual compartments.

Both cement and aggregate batchers are CPMB rated for 5 cu. yds. (3.8 cu m). Load cells on all batchers provide precise measurement of materials. Digital readouts and manual controls (in any language) with electronic pushbuttons are included. RexCon RC3 computer controls are available as an option.

The Mobile 5 also is available with a 6 cu. yd. (4.5 cu. m) central mix option.
