Summary of concrete mixer truck models

The concrete mixer truck model has 3 cubic meters, 3.5 cubic meters, 4 cubic meters, 5 cubic meters, 6 cubic meters, 8 cubic meters, 9 cubic meters, 10 cubic meters, 12 cubic meters, 14 cubic meters, 16 cubic meters and other specifications. The meaning of each model is different, which is mainly reflected in the difference in loading. Therefore, when choosing a concrete mixer truck model, the loading capacity is mainly considered.

Under normal circumstances, an 8 cubic concrete mixer truck can hold 8.5-9 cubic meters of concrete, and a 10-cubic tank truck can hold 10.5-11 cubic meters of concrete. Concrete mixer truck manufacturers (such as CIMC Linyu) will keep it in the design. Lower the margin to prevent the concrete mixer truck from sprinkling materials on steep slopes. Therefore, the volume indicated on the concrete mixer truck means that it can load the volume of concrete.

Determining the actual loading capacity of the concrete mixer truck can be determined in this way:

1. Weighing. If there is a contract, there is this item. It is best to draw the truck and weigh it. Don’t tell the concrete mixing station in advance. When the truck comes, you will say that you want to weigh the truck and let them come witness. After weighing the gross weight, come back and unload the concrete and then remove the tare weight. You can get the total weight of the concrete on the truck. You know from the report of the mixing station the bulk density of each cubic meter of concrete (such as 2380kg/m3). You can use this total The weight is divided by the weight per square meter to know the volume. Usually, the error in the coagulation of the regular mixing station cannot exceed 2%.

2. Measuring the square. That is, the template you have made is convenient for accounting, and the calculated square quantity is compared with the actual discharge square quantity.

Theoretically, the greater the load of transport vehicles, the higher the transport efficiency, but this will also lead to a linear increase in vehicle purchase costs and a decline in trafficability. The loading capacity is 8~9m. The concrete mixer truck with an 8X4 chassis has a load capacity of 6~7m. The price of the 6X4 chassis is 309/5~40% expensive. At the same time, the construction site is generally narrow and the temporary construction road conditions are very poor. The inconvenience of large vehicles, especially semi-trailers, must be fully considered. Therefore, when determining the loading capacity of a vehicle, various factors must be considered comprehensively, and one must not lose sight of the other.

Looking at the market, concrete mixer trucks with 6~7m 6X4 chassis have the highest cost-performance ratio, followed by semi-trailers with 10~12m loading capacity, and 8X4 chassis with 8~10m 8X4 chassis have the lowest cost-performance ratio. Therefore, 6~7m concrete mixer trucks are generally used.

In addition, in order to meet the needs of individual large-scale projects, a small amount of 10~12m semi-trailers can be appropriately equipped. This can take into account various needs and is a more reasonable configuration. If funds are sufficient, repairs, accessories and after-sales service can be guaranteed, purchasing imported products from famous brand manufacturers is a good choice.
