Landscape contractors who handle a significant amount of hardscaping work may be interested in a new skid steer attachment. Western Material & Design has introduced a concrete mixer attachment for skid steers in two models. Dubbed the FasTrac 750, the larger attachment has a capacity of 3/4 of a cubic yard, while the 500 model has a capacity of 1/2 of a cubic yard.
Both models are powered by hydraulic motors connected to standard skid steer quick-disconnects.
They each feature a solid steel, all-welded auger and a rubber trough base that can handle aggregates of varying sizes.
The main trough design helps prevent dry mix from gathering in the corners. The mixing auger can operate in opposing directions.
The design allows for pouring on the left or right and the discharge chute extends up to 6 feet. The pour gate seals to keep water and material from escaping.
The attachment weighs less than 750 pounds, which Western Material says will keep a full mixer below the skid steer’s lifting capacity. Here’s a YouTube video from the company:
