Transport Systems

The Big Shot®

The Big Shot® fiber transport system was designed to quickly and safely move synthetic fiber reinforcement from ground-level storage to upper-level concrete batching systems and concrete mixer trucks.

The Big Shot®

The Big Shot® provides a simple and inexpensive way to add pre-weighed bags or even loose fiber to almost any concrete mixing system. With no moving parts and minimal, if any maintenance, this system requires only PVC pipe, a few hangers, and a supply of compressed air. The Big Shot®system has been installed and used in scores of applications, and represents the most efficient fiber-addition method known to minimize additional time and maximize safety.
