The Cone Setter CS 3100 saves lives and labor by automating the placement of cones. Workers load cones from inside the truck bed. No one walks or hangs off the side of the truck. This patent pending RAM product can prevent the senseless loss of life that occurs when workers setting cones are hit by passing vehicles or simply fall from the truck.

You won’t get nearly as tired running the CS 3100 as you would setting cones by hand. It is as easy as 1-2-3: 1. Mount the CS 3100 onto any flatbed truck, 2. Have one or two workers, depending upon speed desired, slide cones into the cone magazine from inside the truck bed, and 3. With hand held control, you can control cone spacing manually or use the standard programmable timing package. The cones simply slide down the chute and stand up on the road. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

  • Requires only a driver and one person in back to load cones into the machine.
  • Manually sets cones at desired intervals.
  • Easily programmed electronic timing mechanism can set intervals automatically.
