Productivity & Profits

The Load and Go Ready Mix Truck Wash® system will thoroughly wash a mixer truck in 45-60 seconds. This is a drastic time savings from the typical 5-10 minute wash down process. You will pay for the system within the first 6-9 months in most cases with labor savings alone. Additional benefits include reduced water use (30-35 gallons on average), increased QC (consistent water in the mix), increased driver safety (no climbing/stretching), as well as much cleaner mixers (fewer cracked wind shield claims and better public image). Take a minute to put your data into the ROI calculator to see just how quickly this system will begin to add to your bottom line. Then CALL US FOR A QUOTE TODAY! 800.326.9349

How It Works

The Load and Go Ready Mix Truck Wash® is an automated drive-through wash system that is highly specialized to thoroughly clean the entire mixer in 45-60 seconds, using around 35 gallons of water. These amazing results are achieved by utilizing 72-88 high pressure nozzles to deliver 1,200 PSI water jets to the entire mixer. Various types of nozzles are specifically designed and precisely aimed to remove cement dust and concrete build up from all areas of the roller pedestal including the drum, hopper, chutes, fenders and even the discharge blades in the drum. The system’s PLC is triggered and controlled by the Interactive Mixer Position Recognition (IMPR), which relays truck position to the driver through an intuitive red/yellow/green signal light. Utilizing up to 6 different wash stages, the Load and Go Ready Mix Truck Wash® ensures that every part of your mixer (cab included if desired) is clean when the driver pulls through.  Compare that to a normal plant washout station with a single high-volume, low-pressure hose using a gallon every 1-2 seconds for 5-10 minutes!

This patented system is greatly reducing cycle times and increasing driver safety from coast to coast in the US and Canada. By placing extreme high pressure water directly to the point where it is needed we can now completely clean the mixer with far less water in much less time. Most systems average 34 gallons of water during a 45 second cycle compared to a driver using a gallon every 1-2 seconds over 5-10 minutes: depending on flow rates, that could be anywhere from 150-600 gallons!

Safety

The wash down process is statistically the most dangerous part of a mixer driver’s job. The Load and Go Ready Mix Truck Wash® completely eliminates the need for the driver to exit the cab to wash the mixer. Gone are the days when a driver was required to exit the vehicle in a high traffic area, climb a wet ladder and lean over a spinning drum to reach all the hard to access points. Now instead of paying drivers to waste time in a dangerous spot, producers across the country are keeping them in the cab and getting them out the gate.

Additionally, by keeping the mixers extremely clean with high pressure water there is reduced need for dangerous chemicals benefiting drivers and equipment. Less residual build up also means less chance for concrete debris to come loose while mixers are on the highway causing cracked windshields and other damage.

This is one of the rare times in business when the safest way to do a job is also the better way as well as the fastest way!

Environmental Compliance

Reduce EPA concerns. With the Load and Go Ready Mix Truck Wash® you’ll be using less water – typically between 30-35 gallons. This system has greatly reduced washdown water usage in every operation that has installed it. By using high pressure water the system consistently does a much better job of cleaning mixers with far less water. Less total water used means less to divert, capture, store and treat. In today’s climate of ever tightening environmental oversight, managers need to consider any tool that can offer relief. Simply put, this is the right tool for the job.

Testimonials

  • "I have 8 Load & Go wash systems in my region, and the first one was put into service in 2007. Even on these older units, the cost for maintenance is only $300 - $500 per year."

    Scott Brockberg Aggregate Industries, Minneapolis, MN 5541
  • "The Load & GO has a lot of advantages over the conventional method of washing down after getting loaded. It is much quicker and much more consistent in terms of cleaning and water added into the mix. It is our intention to have a Load & GO at every one of our 24 plants."

    Weldon Ratliff Ratliff Ready Mix, Waco, TX 76710
  • "We have calculated time saving of over 12 minutes per load since we installed our Load & GO under our central mix plant. At the same time, we are getting a lot less wet loads and creating a safer work place for our drivers. Putting in a Load & GO was a great idea!"

    Buddy Jenkins Allied Concrete Co, Charlottesville, VA 22902
  • "The Load & Go does such a great job that I cannot believe that everyone wouldn’t want one of these at their plant."

    Mike Rivecca Sonag Ready Mix, Milwaukee, WI 53225
  • "We put in our Load & Go in 2014 after seeing it at the World of Concrete. The biggest return we have seen is the ability to get the loaded trucks out of the yard fast. Plus Q.C. has an easier time dealing with one plant operator to keep the slump accurate without the drivers adjusting each load."

    Joe Zignego Zignego Company, Waukesha, WI 53186

About Load & Go

The Load and Go Ready Mix Truck Wash® is the result of 30 years of industrial high pressure wash experience. The system has been designed to completely replace the need for a mixer driver to exit the truck in order to wash down after the loading process. Since 2008 we have been effectively cleaning mixers (both front and rear discharge) at wet and dry batch plants across the country. Concrete producers of all stripes have proven this system makes sense for almost all ready mix operations because it:

  • Speeds delivery/Reduces labor cost
  • Improves QC by tightly controlling the volume of wash down water entering the mix (5.5-6.5 gallons of water)
  • Thoroughly cleans the mixer (45-60 seconds)
  • Improves safety
  • Reduces fuel costs
  • Reduces maintenance costs
  • Reduces chemical costs
