What is the difference between a mobile and portable concrete plant?
Answer: Technically nothing. When a concrete plant is listed as mobile or portable, that simply means it was designed to be moved. Our rule of thumb is a mobile concrete plant is able to be easily transported to a site and setup without the use of additional equipment such as a telehandler or crane. We consider a portable concrete plant a plant that was designed to be moved (usually has factory installed axles and king pins, often install in modules) but requires additional equipment for install such as a crane or telehandler. In reality their is no specific guideline to outline the difference between a mobile concrete plant or portable concrete plant.
When selecting a plant, you should be focused on the overall production rate, the time, equipment and manpower needed for setup and take down as well as any other special requirements you may have such as automation, cement or aggregate storage minimums, etc.
