REED is recognized as the leading manufacturer of high-quality Gunite Machines.sova275400

The SOVA model is primarily used for higher volume dry-mix gunite applications such as:

 1. Concrete Repair (Concrete Bridge Repair, Infrastructure Repair, Etc)
2. Artificial Rocks and Caves
3. Low-volume Refractory Spraying
4. Small Concrete Retaining Wall Construction
5. Refractory Material Patchwork – Refractory Lining
6. Rockscaping – Artistic/Low Volume
7. Artificial Rock Construction


Benefits of the SOVA…

Smoothest Output. Our precision feed wheel assembly maintains the uniform flow of material into the airstream by supplying constant metered amounts of material. (No high-low surge in material hose).

High-Quality Concrete.  Smooth placement results in even hydration of material at the nozzle and minimal rebound.

Highly-Portable and Easy to Store. Compact size allows it to be used in even the most confined work areas. Putting a wheel mounted Gun on a truck with 2 scaffold planks is a two man job. Narrow width lets it fit through narrow doors.

Versatile. Interchangeable Components (hoses and feed wheels) gives you the advantage of controlled rates of feed and a wide range of output.

Easy to Maintain. Easy access to perform on-the-line service with minimum tools.guniteapplication650326

Minimum Labor Required to Operate. Only minutes are required to instruct a ready-mix truck driver or shoveler, and from there the gun needs minimal adjustments.

Gun Disassembles in Minutes. When necessary, the removal of 7 nuts allows the machine to come quickly and completely apart (except the sealed-in drive train).

Rugged and Reliable. Sealed-in-Oil Gear Drive insures long life. All gears are of spur design and manufactured of heat treated alloy, running in ball or roller bearings. (No chains).

Safe. Our feed process eliminates dangerous pressure chambers, reduces possible injuries.

Continuous Operation. Material receiving hopper is open to the atmosphere.

Easiest Gunite Machine to Understand and Operate.
