What exactly is a self loading concrete mixer?

The self loading concrete mixer is a truck used for producing concrete. It combines the operations of a loader, a mixing machine, and a concrete tank truck. So one set of self loading concrete mixer is equivalent to a small mobile concrete batching plant and a concrete tank truck.

It can also transport concrete mixture produced to the job site. Only two worker is required to operate the entire process, which includes automated loading, weighing, mixing, and discharge. Cement, sand and stone, water, and other additions are examples of raw materials needed for its operation.

Self loader concrete mixers may be utilized for a variety of construction projects, including road work, home building, bridge construction, dam construction, foundation construction, slope protection, and ditch construction, among others.

self loading concrete mixer with pump- perfect combination for you!

Self loading concrete mixerwith pump

If the building site is in a low-lying, highland, or remote region, a self-loading concrete mixer with a pump is necessary.

Concrete is created by a self-loading concrete mixer and unloaded into a trailer pump before being pumped to the job site.

When compared to a concrete batching plant, a self-loading concrete mixer with a pump can save time on concrete transportation.

Concrete may be manufactured depending on actual demands, which is convenient and versatile.

components of a self loading concrete mixer

The self-loading cement mixer’s major systems are as follows: chassis system, supporting roller system, mixing tank, feeding system, discharging system, operating system, circuit system, hydraulic transmission system, and cleaning system.

1. Chassis system

The chassis system is the fundamental component of the automatic feeding mixer truck. The chassis is responsible for transporting the whole automatic feeding mixer truck.

2. Supporting roller system

The component connects the back of the mixing tank to the sub-frame and is primarily used to support the mixing tank.

3. Circuit system

This term refers to the entire circuit, which includes taillights, side marker lights, cooling fan motors, and so on.

4. Operating system

The operating system is primarily responsible for controlling the speed and rotation direction of the mixing drum. It is made up of the controller, the flexible shaft, the linkage shaft, and the connecting rod mechanism.

5. Hydraulic transmission system

A gear pump is employed to prevent engine power loss. The engine’s power is turned into hydraulic energy (displacement and pressure), which is then output by the motor as mechanical energy (speed and torque) to power the mixing drum.

6. Feeding system

It consists mostly of a bucket and support. Because the bucket will be subjected to a high impact force, the bucket’s material must be resistant to wear. The assistance is mostly utilized to lessen the effect.

7. Water charging system

It has an automatic quantitative pump that is controlled by a quantitative controller to provide automatic quantitative water charging.

8. Mixing drum

The mixing drum is the most important component of a self-loading concrete mixer. It’s used to mix and store concrete. Blades installed within the mixing drum aid in the mixing and directing of the concrete mixture.

The hydraulic motor drives the spinning of the mixing drum through a unique planetary reducer. Under adverse road conditions, the planetary reducer’s output shaft might swing at an angle to meet the leap of the mixing drum. The mixing drum is outfitted with a control valve that allows precise control of the mixing drum’s opening.

The forward rotation of the mixing drum is used for feeding and mixing, while the reverse revolution is used for discharging.

9. Discharging system

The discharge system consists mostly of the primary discharge chute, an auxiliary discharge chute (extended discharge chute), a locking rod, and other components.

  • A locking mechanism allows the main discharge chute to be rotated and fixed in place.
  • while the auxiliary discharge chute is utilized to lengthen the main discharge chute. It may be folded and positioned in its fixed position before being attached to the discharge chute with a hook.

10. Operating system

Hydraulic steering four-wheel drive is used, which significantly minimizes turning radius. It is better suited for building sites with a limited area. The hydraulic torque converter lessens the impact on the engine and extends its service life.

11. Cleaning system

The cleaning system consists mostly of a pressure water tank, a water pistol, a water line, a valve, and other components. Air pressure water supply is employed, mostly to flush the bucket after loading, but also to clean the mixing drum and discharge chute after discharge to avoid concrete bonding.

how does a self loading concrete mixer operate?

The self-loading concrete mixer process consists of five steps: inspection, discharging, feeding, mixing, and cleaning.

1. Inspection

Four components should be evaluated before utilizing the concrete self-loader:

  • There should be enough water in the tank.
  • The oil level in the fuel tank must be sufficient to ensure effective operation.
  • The hydraulic oil tank must be normal.
  • The tires must be in excellent condition.

2. Feeding

  • Turn on the mixing drum’s mixing mode, then the quantitative water supply controller, and then push the bucket to elevate the large arm, then lower the big arm.
  • Place the bucket flat on the ground to shovel items, then close it, hoist the huge arm, and weigh. The bucket will continue to rise after weighing.
  • If the material weight in the bucket exceeds the stipulated weight, open the bin door to remove the surplus material before rising to the feed inlet. Once the bucket opening is aligned with the feed inlet, open the bin door for unloading and then close the bin door for the next feeding. Until the cement and gravel have reached the required weight.

While the blade functions to split the cement bag, it is fitted in the bucket of a Luton self-loading concrete mixer truck.

3. Mixing

During the feeding operation, the mixing drum revolves slowly. Following feeding, the mixing speed is raised until the concrete mixture is evenly mixed. Drum rotation speed is 13-21 R/min.

4. Discharge

The concrete is released at the necessary spot once the mixture has been uniformly mixed. Connect the extended discharge chute (auxiliary discharge chute) to the main discharge chute after the mixing drum stops rotating. When the mixing drum’s rotation is reversed, concrete will be ejected. Remove the extended discharge hopper after the discharge.

5. Cleaning Operation

The mixing drum must be properly cleaned after each day’s operations to avoid the cement from drying up and limiting the tank’s capacity.

self loading concrete mixer design characteristics

Design With a Low Inclination Angle:

The inclination angle is 5% lower than that of other similar self-mixing vehicles, and the safety factor is 10% higher.

The Mixing Drum:

  • The mixing blade is designed with a three-dimensional double-helix, and the residual rate is as low as 0.6 percent.
  • The drum is comprised of 6mm alloy steel and manganese steel while the blades are stronger and more wear-resistant.
  • The closing head of the drum is composed of 8mm thick automated edge spinning steel,
  • The internal blade is made of 5mm fine-grain alloy steel, developed and fabricated using UG and CAD computer simulation technologies. The classic mixing procedure improves uneven mixing of stones and cement as well as easy blade wear. The feeding rate exceeds 3.8 m3/min, the residual rate is less than 0.2 percent, and the discharging rate exceeds 3 m3/min.
  • Product quality is ensured by assembly-line production, mixing drum, and overall welding of the drum. It makes use of automated circumferential and longitudinal seams.

Transmission System

The engine serves as the power supply for the transmission system, which drives the mixing drum. The power take-off at the engine’s rear end takes the power and transmits it to the hydraulic pump through the transmission shaft. The motor reducer causes the mixing drum to revolve.

System of Water Supply

The water supply system is mostly used to clean and maintain the look of the mixing drum. The water supply system employs a pressure water tank, with a water pressure of 0.6-0.8 Mpa.

System of Hydraulics

It uses a German Rexroth hydraulic pump and a Rongjiao reduction, a Sully hydraulic pump and motor, and an Italian PMP cycloidal pinwheel reducer.


1. Self-loading Mobile Concrete Mixer Application

  1. Various road construction projects, including rural road widening, minor road repairs, and road building in cities, towns, and hilly locations.
  2. Housing construction: construction of housing provision in rural, urban, and mountain areas.
  3. Industry construction projects: small and large-scale factory structures in villages and cities.
  4. A variety of flooring projects.
  5. Diverse ditch slope protection projects, including ditch building in villages, towns, deep mountains, and cities.
  6. Concrete may be employed in a variety of infrastructure projects, including those in cities, rural areas, towns, and deep mountains.

2. Self Loading Concrete Mixer Rentals

The self-loading mixer truck may not only be used by you but it can also be leased to others. Some building projects have a limited construction duration, and purchasing a self-loading concrete mixer is not cost-effective, thus renting a concrete mixer is the best option.

3. What Distinguishes a Self-loading Concrete Mixer from a Concrete Mixer Truck?

The self-loading concrete mixer may be run without the need for power.

  1. The self-loading mixer has a bucket that may be used in place of the loader for feeding. However, feeding the concrete mixer truck needs the use of a loader or a human.
  2. The self-loading concrete mixer’s bucket boom is equipped with weighing devices, and the proportioning accuracy of the concrete mixture generated is higher than that of the concrete mixer vehicle.
  3. The concrete mixer truck mostly conveys commercial concrete, with a single delivery capacity ranging from 10 to 20 cubic meters. The self-loading concrete mixer has a single delivery volume ranging from 2 to 8 cubic meters.
  4. The concrete mixer truck is too huge and heavy for rural roads; however, the self-loading concrete mixer can be used on a rural road. In rural construction, the self-loading concrete mixer can be used instead of using human labor to mix concrete.

4. What is the Difference in the Strength of Concrete Produced in Ready-mix Facility VS. Self Loading Mixer?

Raw ingredients and the manufacturing method are the two most important elements influencing concrete strength. Raw material parameters include cement strength, water-cement ratio, aggregate type, quality, and amount, additives and admixtures; manufacturing process factors include mixing, curing temperature and humidity, and age.

The raw components in a ready-mix plant and a self-load mixer are the same, but the proportioning precision and mixing procedure vary slightly. As a result, the strength of the created concrete varies somewhat, although not significantly. Concrete generated by a self-load mixer can be utilized in the construction of general structures.

5. What are the Driving Instructions for a Self-loading Concrete Mixer Truck?

  1. The self-loading mixer truck’s chassis is unique, and the gearbox is outfitted with high and low gears. Please make sure the gear is set to low.
  2. Operating levers for the cab and the rear: After starting the mixer truck normally, move the gear lever in the direction indicated on the vehicle body to regulate the forward and backward rotation of the tank body. When transitioning between forward and backward rotation, keep the gear lever in neutral until the tank stops rotating; otherwise, the hydraulic pump may be destroyed.
  3. Water supply system: When adding or draining water, the air control box’s knob must be in a precise position. Water cannot be added or drained if this condition is not met. If the self-loading concrete mixer pauses for an extended period at a low temp, please drain the water tank.
  4. Fastener: Over time, the fastener (bolt, U-shaped bolt) will become loose. As a result, it must be secured frequently.

6. How to Choose the Best Self-loading Concrete Mixer?

1. Recognize the performance parameters

What sort of engine is permitted? What is the maximum capacity? What scale is it appropriate for?
Volume: the volume is a fundamental parameter; the greater the volume, the more concrete loaded, and the higher the price. Depending on the purpose of the purchase, choose a self-loading mixer with varying volumes.

2. Rear axle

If the road surface is reasonably flat during transportation, a single-stage deceleration axle can be chosen. If the road conditions are poor, the wheel-side deceleration axle should be used.

3. Tires

Tires come in a variety of specifications. The material is separated into nylon and steel wire tires; the life of steel wire tires is double that of nylon tires, but the price is significantly greater. Customers should inquire whether the self-concrete loader has steel or nylon tires.

4. Tank quality

The tank’s quality is mostly determined by its thickness. Manganese plate is typically 6mm thick. It is not advisable to consider it if the thickness is less than this.

5. Vehicle Chassis

There are many different types of chassis, each with its own set of pros and limitations that may be chosen based on current needs.
