Products 09/01/2010 Composite Concrete Chute: No Liner Needed McNeilus has introduced the Ngen Composite Chute for ready-mix concrete. The chute weighs only 27 lb, much lighter than a standard steel chute but with a comparable durability. Unlike lightweight aluminum chutes, the Ngen Composite Chute does not require a plastic liner when in use, which prevents the problem of concrete building up on the lip of the liner, while the lighter weight reduces strain on the operator. Handles integrated into the chute design to keep the operator’s hands clear of pinch points. McNeilus; 507-374-6321; www.mcneiluscompanies.com Dual Snow Plow: Steel and Rubber
The market is generally healthy and steadily growing, and margins are up for large specialty contractors. Further, advances in design tools and owner demand for collaboration are giving subcontractors a seat at the table early on in projects.
