DIY Concrete South Haven

There are many different DIY landscaping projects that most any weekend warrior can complete with relative ease. You can enhance the curb appeal of your home by flanking both sides of your driveway with colored concrete, create a walkway to your     front door that is warm and welcoming, or turn your backyard into an entertainment mecca complete with a basketball court and party patio. U-cart concrete south Haven can make those projects even easier. All you need is a small deposit and a large vehicle. Here are some of the most common questions when it comes to U-cart concrete, answered.

What is u-cart concrete? The cart is actually a blending system for small to medium sized concrete jobs. A standard sized cart can typically produce up to 15 yards of concrete per hour. This eliminates the need to haul sack after sack of ready mix concrete to your project and mix it by hand in a wheelbarrow. You can save valuable time by using u-cart concrete South Haven.

How is the concrete discharged from the cart? Using your towing vehicle, simply back the cart up to your form and pour the concrete where needed. The trailer features a hydraulic jack to easily raise the bed for emptying and has a rear opening with a sliding gate. The opening is usually about 29 inches from the ground, allowing you to place a small wheelbarrow under it if needed.

How long can the cart be rented for? The exact amount of time will vary based on the concrete South Haven company and their policies. You can typically expect to rent the cart for a few hours, with options to extend the rental to half a day or even a full day if needed. You usually have the option to drive the cart back to the company to be refilled if needed or have a truck deliver the extra concrete direct to the cart for an additional charge.

Is it difficult to hook up and tow the cart? With the correct towing vehicle, it is actually quite simple. All you need is a ball tow hitch and a vehicle with enough towing capacity to pull a trailer that is approximately 10 feet long and 6 feet wide. There is no light hook up required as the vehicle lights are visible around the trailer. Even with the proper towing equipment, however, you will want to schedule your project on a relatively dry day. Ground that is wet or soft from rain can make it difficult to back the trailer up.
