Stone Construction Equipment,Inc. has added the patents and marketing rights to Buddy Equipment Mortar Mixers. The Mixers, which will be marketed under the “Buddy by Stone” label, consist of three belt-driven models and one fully-enclosed gearcae model. The Buddy by Stone EXD850, EXD1100, and EXD1300 mixers have capacities of 8, 11 and 13 cu. ft. respectively, and are considered to be true 2,3- and 4-bag mixers.
The extreme-duty mixers are designed to address applications that require a more robust, heavy-duty mixer, such as specialty mix applications where the mix is stiffer or much more abrasive. The applications could include, but are not limited to, curbing, terrazzo, or special additive mixes.
Buddy by Stone Mixers are designed with several patented and patent-pending features.
- An eight-paddle configuration that delivers “dynamic mixing”, delivering a more complete blend in the first minute of mixing.
- A unique drum profile, which eliminates the dead zone in a mixer, puts the paddles in more complete contact with the entire mix
- The pending patent cowl design allowing the engine to be started and operated without ever opening the cowl.
The mixers are fabricated of 1/4″ steel plate, and a heavy-duty all welded grate with a triple-ever-sharp bag splitter.
Buddy by Stone Mixers also include many of the industry-leading features currently found on Stone Champion Mixers which increase serviceability and operator-friendliness, including:
- Stone”s exclusive quadruple seal and bearing systemin a patented removeable housing for superior performance and longer life. The system carries a lifetime warranty.
- Patented lift-away safety guard to move the drum guard out of the way while dumping.
- Front post hand clutch for easy dumping.
- Extra-long, heavy-duty tow pole with a ball hitch and safety chains standard.
- Stay-level engine platform.
- Two-year drum warranty.
All four models of the Buddy by Stone Mixers are powered by either Honda gas engines or electical motors. The mixers are mounted on heavy-duty, high speed tires.
