Mixer trucks need to be tough and technically advanced, as they cope with a range of drums, mechanisms and materials while providing comfort and convenience in the cab to keep drivers and operators content. With different component configurations and various cabs and capabilities on offer, as well as varying levels of wear and tear on second-hand models, it is best for a buyer to be prudent when considering their purchase.
A mixer truck which is in a serviceable condition can be a good investment, but ones with potential issues which might surprise you are to be avoided. And with all the varied specifications of used mixer trucks to take into account, you also need to be clear about your specific requirements.

When you are first considering a second-hand mixer truck, look at both the type of drum that is fitted on the rear and the number of wheels that feature on the cab and trailer. Mixer drums vary in components and capabilities and the materials for which they are suitable. You can get mixers with kit from Hymix, as well as models that take advantage of volumetric technology to provide precise amounts of concrete as and when they are required, improving the efficiency with which the truck can be deployed.
The size of a drum is another factor to take into account, because bigger drums can handle bigger payloads, and you will not want to pick a model that you will end up straining by using it at its maximum capacity at all times. Standard 2x4 and 4x4 mixer trucks are available, along with larger 6x4 and even 8x4 models at the upper end of the sizing scale. Check up on the state of the tyres and suspension, which will be the parts that have to cope with the brunt of impacts when the truck is taken on to uneven surfaces.
In among dedicated mixer trucks you will also find separate mixer trailers and motor units that allow you to power mixing equipment on-site. Meanwhile, pumping systems which can supply the mixed material to the place where it is to be used can also be procured on the used market, requiring their own form of scrutiny to ensure things such as the hoses, leads and control mechanisms are all fully functional and not on the verge of breaking down.
The features in the cab of a mixer truck can be surprisingly civilised, with day and crew cabs being available alongside sleeper cabs. Air-cushioned seats for comfort as well as things such as air conditioning and electric windows are generally present on modern models. Engines which comply with EU regulations are a must, along with the paperwork to prove that the proper servicing intervals have been adhered to by previous owners. Buying a used mixer truck is a lot like buying any commercial vehicle, because if you are aware of the kind of things that the trucks you use are faced with on a daily basis, you can look out for them when investing in a second-hand model.
