Concrete mixer trucks
Technologies of modern construction are constantly being improved. New building materials appear, innovative approaches are practiced. However, despite this, not a single construction site can do without some traditional building materials. Concrete is an indispensable material for arranging various foundations of complex configuration.
Of course, you can make your own mortar. But this method will be acceptable only for small-scale works, for episodic, fragmentary use. If the need for this building mixture is significant, it is much easier, faster and more profitable to use mixer trucks to prepare and deliver the mortar.
Due to the loading / unloading option, the truck mixer has the ability to carry out a complete technological process.
The solution can be prepared both in the factory and directly on the way. A closed container with a drum and blades preserves the quality of the material and protects it from the effects of external negative factors. Thus, the required performance characteristics of the solution are maintained.
Another important advantage of concrete mixer trucks is the ability to mix not only concrete, but also other bulk materials and solutions, including those containing dyes. The use of such mechanisms significantly reduces the costs of construction companies for the purchase of individual machines for the delivery of concrete to objects, and also increases the productivity of work in general.
Many models of new equipment and used concrete mixer trucks, of various types, in different configurations and modifications from a large number of sellers are available on the Machineryline marketplace. There are concrete mixer trucks for work on objects of varying complexity and remoteness.

In the event of a dispute between the seller and the buyer, our support team will help you quickly resolve the issue. Also, all sellers undergo a verification mechanism during registration, which minimizes the likelihood of fraudulent activities.
Concrete mixer trucks classification
Modern automobile concrete mixer trucks are classified according to the following criteria:
- unloading direction.
Based on this parameter, there are designs with front and rear unloading. Concrete mixer trucks with a mechanism for the front unloading of ready-mixed concrete allow the operator to exercise strict control over the process without having to leave the vehicle cab. But the design of forward unloading concrete mixer trucks is somewhat more complex and less reliable, so rear unloading modifications are popular;
- modification of engines used in mixing plants.
In modern models of concrete mixer trucks, two main engine options are used: autonomous and on the chassis. The former allow the production of a concrete mixture in the event of a main engine failure, therefore they are considered the most suitable for concrete mixer trucks;
- design of the mixing tank drive.
Mixing drums on concrete mixer trucks are driven by two types of drives: mechanical and hydraulic. The latter are preferred because they are more productive;
- working volume of the drum.
There are concrete mixer trucks with a wide variety of capacity, but the most popular models are from 5 to 14 cubic meters. Equipment for the production/transportation of mortars can be mounted on the chassis of any cargo vehicle of the appropriate carrying capacity.
How to choose
First you need to decide on the list of tasks and the amount of work that this type of equipment will have to perform. It doesn't hurt to list additional features that you would like to see in a concrete mixer truck. How often and with what intensity the equipment is expected to be used. Decide on budgetary costs – whether to buy a new or consider buying a used concrete mixer truck. On the Machineryline marketplace, there are many options for various models of concrete mixer trucks for sale. Analyze the available offers and choose the one that suits you. We recommend that you study in detail the condition of the selected equipment, if you decide to buy a used concrete mixer truck.
