Allen Engineering Corp. has two new stand-on wheel buggy models for placing concrete in places where a cement truck won’t fit and a wheelbarrow would be inefficient. They can also be used for placing other materials on a jobsite.

The gasoline-powered AW16 has a 16-cubic-foot bucket, and the AW21’s is 21 cubic feet.

The AW16 can hold up to 2,500 pounds of concrete. It can travel up to 7 mph with its 14-horsepower Kohler engine. The AW16 comes in electric or recoil start versions. It also comes in a propane version, with a 13-horsepower Honda engine, for working in areas with air-quality concerns.

The AW21 runs on a 20.5-horsepower Kohler engine and has an electric start. It can travel 5.9 mph and has a payload of 3,200 pounds.

Both models feature optional foam-filled tires, frames of 2-inch-thick steel and forklift pockets. The buckets are made of high-strength, high-density polyethylene. Other standard features on the buggies include heavy-duty hydraulic wheel motors for bucket dumping and steel raceways to protect hydraulic hoses.
