Mixamate launch versatile concrete mixer truck
Latest machine offers all-in-one concrete delivery, mixing and pumping service from a single vehicle
MIXAMATE have unveiled a new mixer truck that has been specially designed to provide all-in-one concrete delivery, mixing and pumping for their customers. The innovative vehicle has been trialled by some of the company’s major customers and is now fully operational in and around the London area.
The vehicle, designed and manufactured by Mixamate in the UK, utilizes a combination of technologies from the US, UK and Denmark. At 12m long, the truck can easily navigate side and residential roads, and is capable of supplying up to 12 cubic metres of concrete per delivery.
It also comes with an on-board 50m delivery hose that pumps material at a rate of up to 6–8 metres per hour. This removes the need to hire a separate concrete pump for construction jobs, significantly reducing transport, labour and waiting costs. It also eliminates the hassle that has traditionally been associated with renting a separate pump, such as storage, cleaning and ordering.
Furthermore, the unit benefits from Mixamate’s Conqueror Mixing technology, which delivers batching plant-quality concrete from a mix-on-site service. Each ingredient that goes into the mix is metrically weighed and monitored by the truck’s on-board computer, which provides a print-out documenting the exact quantities of the mix. According to Mixamate, this provides a more accurate mix than volumetric concrete trucks are able to achieve, ensuring a high standard of concrete is supplied.
‘We are very pleased to have developed and manufactured this new type of machine in the UK,’ commented Chris Smith, managing director of Mixamate. ‘We have integrated robust concrete pumping machinery directly with a mix-on-site vehicle to create a new mixer vehicle for the batched-on-site sector.
‘The concrete pumping truck provides an all-in-one service for the site delivery, mixing and pumping of concrete from a single vehicle, eliminating the need for a separate pump to be delivered while reducing costs, hassle and CO2 emissions.’
