The Contractor's Portable Concrete Washout System is a trailer-mounted, self-contained system that allows contractors to wash concrete tools and wash out ready-mix truck chutes and concrete trailer pumps, keeping jobsites free of concrete washout water contamination. Easily towed by a pickup truck, it includes a patent pending strainer that separates water from the waste concrete, pumping it back into the water tank for reuse as washout water. The tilt bin simplifies dumping the small pieces of waste concrete. Both environmentally and user-friendly, the complete system comes fully assembled. On Site Washout Corp., 831-458-2007.
