The Conco Companies are one of the top commercial concrete contractors and independent reinforcing steel and post-tension cable suppliers in the Western United States, and as such, we recognize the need to finish projects on time and on budget. This is why we continue to purchase and utilize the most up-to-date equipment to help us successfully fulfill our commitments.
As one of our lesser known pieces of timesaving equipment, Telebelts are designed to move heavy materials on or off a jobsite quickly and easily. Telebelts are a mobile telescopic belt conveyor that is very versatile and comes in a variety of sizes. This type of equipment is used to place high volumes of concrete, gravel, rock, and backfill fast and efficiently to save time and labor. The set-up on a Telebelt is easy to do, and since it is mobile, offers the option to move around a jobsite as needed and is ideal for jobs that would otherwise have few options but to wheelbarrow material by hand.
Telebelts are fast and efficient with outputs up to 5 cubic yards per minute. They are perfect for use in low clearance areas or under bridges and can go into limited access structures. One example is a Putzmeister TB 130 that has a horizontal reach of 126’ 6” and a maximum rated capacity of 360 cubic yards an hour. The unit has a 360 degree hydraulic rotation and a variety of hopper options.
To demonstrate how we utilize Telebelts in a project, Conco recently had to backfill 2,900 tons of crushed rock in just three 8-hour days. There was no room for error as any delay in placing the material would impact other jobs on the project. To finish on time, we brought in our Direct Feed trailer which allows a Superdump, Transfer, End Dump or 10-Wheeler to unload its contents directly into the hopper attached to the trailer. The material was then fed from the hopper onto one of our Telebelts. The Telebelt placed the material directly at the point of placement, which all helped in our efforts to meet a tight deadline.
When your project demands exceptional services and the best value, Conco can deliver. We have been offering premium concrete services throughout the Western U.S. since 1959, and have four regional offices serving California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Colorado. With state-of-the-art equipment and modern facilities, we work diligently to meet goals and stay within budget.
