How to Choose a Right Capacity of Concrete Truck

Actually, there are three factors influence the concrete mixer truck specifications: distance, conveying capacity and the amounts uses need.
Distance: If you plan to buy a concrete mixer truck for sale, and you sen inquiry to the concrete truck supplier, generally the salesman will ask you the distance from concrete production site to construction site. Because, during the concrete transportation on the road, the mixer tank needs to keep rotation constantly to prevent the solidation. In addition, water of the water tank is limited,  it is necessary to add water after a distance of transport to keep the concrete quality, if run out the water, it is impossible to mix concrete and wash the concrete drum, which is bad for your construction project, isn’t? So before you invest a cement truck, the first thing you need to confirm is the distance.
Conveying capacity: This means you can choose a proper truck machine according to your construction project scale, if your construtcion project is big, it is better to choose a concrete agitator with big capacity. AIMIX GROUP hot sale types are mainly 8m³,  9m³ and 10m³.




Amounts uses need: If you want to finish your construction quickly, you can choose several concrete trucks, which can greatly improve the working efficiency. To some extent, it reduces a lot of time on concrete delivery. What’s more, it is beneficial to keep the concrete fresh and then ensure the quality of your project.

Usually, if you have a HZS60 ready mix concrete plant, you can choose 10m³ and 12m³. Here is an interesting case. We have an old customer from Indonesia, he bought a HZS90 stationary concrete batching plant, but he chose a 4 m³ concrete mixer trailer, it sounds unbelievable, right? But the truth is that no matter how big your project is, you can choose any one capacity among 3m³, 4m³, 5m³, 6m³, 8m³, 9m³, 10m³, 12m³ and 14m³.
