The HEM Placer is designed and built to complement your HEM paving equipment in applications where access in front of the paver is limited or restricted by pretied or continuous mat reinforcing steel common in airport and heavy highway construction.  The HEM Placer features a dual belt delivery system for fast unloading and precise placement of low slump concrete.  The front loading hopper can accommodate both dump and transit truck (ready mix) concrete delivery.  Other standard features include a high pressure power washer system and a lighting package for night operation.  HEM is the only company in the world that provides a full line of concrete paving equipment for all aspects of the paving job; grade trimmers, placers, placer-spreaders, texturing to joint sawing. Standard HEM Placers include the MP2500.
