THE STANDARD FOR PREBLENDED MIXING
The SPEC MIX® G7000 silo system is the ultimate contractor tool for maximizing the production and profitability of any workforce. The G7000’s design is simple, yet highly efficient when producing dry, cement-based products on site. Whether the project is small or large, the G7000 system will greatly reduce the cost of labor and the amount of waste (sand, cement, paper bags) common with conventional batching methods.
With the SPEC MIX system, every raw material is factory preblended, packaged in heavy-duty bulk bags and dispensed into the G7000 silo on site. There is no sand to shovel or pallets of bags to lift, break and discard. If the project requires masonry mortar, grout, concrete, shotcrete or stucco, the G7000 system will produce the product quickly and consistently to increase profits while decreasing a contractor’s labor and product liability.

A DOUBLE BATCH OF MATERIAL IS MADE IN 5 MINUTES OR LESS WITHOUT STRAINING THE LABORERS OR COMPROMISING THE INTEGRITY OF THE MIX. NO ELECTRICITY OR PRESSURIZED WATER SOURCE IS NEEDED FOR THE G7000, JUST A STANDARD MECHANICAL BATCH MIXER. THE SILO IS TRANSPORTABLE. AS THE JOB PROGRESSES, THE CREW AND G7000 MIXING STATION FOLLOWS. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
STEP 1: To erect the G7000 on site, make sure the ground is dry, level and compacted. With a 26 foot (7.9 m), 4,500 lb (2,041.1 kg) capacity standard forklift, insert the forks of the lift into the G7000’s fork pockets and raise the unit to the desired height. Four heights are available.
STEP 2: Using the double leg pins attached to the frame, secure the upper silo assembly by sliding the leg pins into position. Then secure the pins with the safety locking pins. Next, attach the valve gate handle in its place and get ready to load your SPEC MIX product into the silo.
STEP 3: The bulk bags are easily loaded into the silo by inserting the forks through the bag’s reinforced loops. Once the bag is above the silo and in position over the upper dust shroud, the laborer standing on the safety platform can release the bag’s double discharge chutes.
STEP 4: After the silo is loaded with four to five 3,000 lb (1,360.7 kg) bulk bags, place the batch mixer beneath the cone under the silo’s boot. If needed, trim the length of the boot to the top of the mixer. To make product, add the desired amount of water to the mixer and pull back the silo handle to dispense the amount of material needed to achieve the preferred consistency. Any size batch can be made. Let the product mix according to product instructions to ensure complete hydration of all materials for optimal workability and board life.
STEP 5: The G7000 is easily relocated on site to position your mixing station as close as possible to the work, maximizing job site efficiency. With the silo legs pinned in the up or down position, insert the forks of the lift into the silo’s fork pockets. Then, raise the silo and place it in the preferred location. Make sure the forklift is equipped to safely transport the silo and that the new terrain is dry, level and stable. Always secure all leg pins and safety pins!
