Compact Volvo FL 4×2 18 tonne Mixer

Concrete mixer trucks for sale on Truckpages are highly specialised pieces of equipment. They are often called ‘transit mixers’ as they are continually mixing the cement into the sand to make concrete.  If you are buying a used concrete mixer truck, you are essentially buying two machines at the same time.  The chassis cab must be in good order, but so to does the mixing drum and associated mechanicals.

These machines are worked hard.  Concrete is a difficult substance to work with and the mixers are expensive pieces of equipment.  Combine this with the lives spent on and off building sites in the mud then it might be best to get a full inspection of any concrete mixer that you are looking to buy.

Check the Drum

Each mixer drum manufacturer has guidelines that determine the frequency that concrete mixer drums should be capped and re-bladed. If the drum has been well maintained and is in good condition it will discharge more quickly with a more consistent mix.

Mortar Delivery Trucks

Every Kindergarten child knows what a cement mixer truck looks like – but what about a mortar delivery truck?  There is a need for a variety of screeds and mortars to be delivered to construction sites.  Highly specialist trucks can carry up to five separate pods (for 8×4 chassis) each of which can contain a different material.  These pods can mix the mortar for bricklayers whilst carrying concrete, sand and any other screed in quantities.

Mortar delivery is also possible using a ‘traditional’ mixer truck.  These can have a lot larger drum, as mortar is lighter to transport than concrete, therefor you can have a larger drum.  Some specialist machines can also colour the mortar as it leaves the drum to give a bespoke service without having to take a whole drum with a particular colour loaded.

Buying a Used Concrete Mixer

Condition of the concrete mixer is king here, as you could be heading for a whole load of costs if the machinery starts going wrong.

A mixer will typically be mounted onto an 8×4 chassis – the four axles helping with both payload and traction with both the rear wheels driven.

For smaller deliveries, specialist manufacturers like McPhee also make 6×4 and even 4×2 mixers at 18 tonnes GVW.  For deliveries of concrete to tricky building sites in city centres we are seeing more low entry cabs like the Econic from Mercedes or Dennis chassis with ‘Tridem’ rear bogies with a steering rear axle after the two drive axles.

A number of truck manufacturers have their ‘construction’ version of their chassis which would be best suited for this type of operation.  For example, Mercedes have their Arocs, Scania the XP, Volvo Trucks have the FMX and Renault the Range C and the Range K.

Manufacturers of the mixer equipment include HymixMcPhee in the UK.

Talk to the Specialists

There are companies that specialise in these types of concrete equipment. Utranazz in Buckingham are one example.  Not only do they hire out concrete equipment of all types, they are able to sell new trucks with new equipment already fitted and ready to go.  According to the company:

Utranazz offers the UK’s largest range of new concrete equipment. All new concrete equipment is supplied with a full 12 months warranty and can be offered with guaranteed buy-back, hire-with-option-to-purchase schemes and extremely generous part-exchange allowances. Utranazz can also offer hire-purchase and lease agreements with very competitive rates.

Utranazz also sells used concrete mixer trucks in addition to the volumetric concrete mixers.  A volumetric mixer precisely meters out cement, sand, stone and water on-site. This means that there is no mixing required as the truck is driven to site. No getting stuck in traffic while the mix in the back hardens and changes.
