Crete Rod has introduced an all-wheel drive material handler designed from the ground up to overcome the limitations of using concrete buggies, pumps and skid steers for material hauling.  

Measuring approximately 120" long by 54" wide and 59" tall, the Crete Rod serves as a low-profile equipment option and has a low centre of gravity for stability.  Its 78.50" wheelbase, coupled with all-wheel hydro-static drive with twin locking motors, and hydraulic cylinder driven rack and pinion steering deliver stability, maneuverability, efficiency and versatility. The Crete Rod moves concrete and other building materials across varied terrains and in restricted spaces like indoor and outdoor construction sites, bridge construction projects, mining facilities, landscape contracting projects, and more.

A 3-cylinder, 4-cycle, liquid-cooled Kubota tier-4 diesel engine and variable displacement axial piston hydraulic pumps provide ample power, allowing the Crete Rod to deliver a full yard and a third of concrete precisely where it is needed. Intuitive controls are simple to operate, while precise speed control ensure safety for the operator and adjacent workers.  High operator visibility further enhances job site safety.
