Maintenance of concrete mixer truck

Date: Jan 28, 2015     Source: admin

To ensure the top performance of your ready-mix truck, maintenance is key. Rather than allowing the concrete to harden, washing away concrete buildup daily is the easiest way to extend the life of the truck. Although routine washing may seem like a hassle, it is the most efficient method to keep the trucks clean.

When the concrete is allowed to set inside the mixing drum, the only solution is chipping off the hardened concrete with a jackhammer. Or if chipping does not properly remove the concrete, some have resorted to small explosives. Chipping also poses many safety hazards: rolling drum, sharp mixing blades, falling concrete, and many more. You can read more about these safety hazards. The main question is, why go through such difficult measures when all of that can be avoided.

A routine wash keeps the truck and all its parts in pristine condition. The only downfall of washing cement trucks and mixing drums daily is the large amount of water involved. Using a high-pressure power washer to clean the ready mix truck can use up to 5-12 gallons of water per minute, depending on the intensity of the power wash. On the other hand, cleaning the mixing drum takes at least 200 gallons of water.
