Types of Concrete Mixers
As its name suggests, a concrete mixer is a drum that is used to mix cement with water and other aggregates. Concrete mixers look different and are used for different sizes of concrete mixing jobs, but they are all basically the same: a rotating drum with a motor and a chute. Concrete mixers run the gamut from huge commercial truck mixers mini concrete mixers that are portable. The cement mixture turns in the drum until it is ready for pouring.
Commercial-Size Concrete Mixers
Large commercial jobs require huge concrete mixer trucks that can mix and transport the concrete to the job site. Concrete dries quickly, so concrete contractors Calgary need to get as close to the job site as possible and the concrete needs to get poured quickly! Most concrete companies charge by the cubic yard of concrete.
Smaller, Mini Concrete Mixers
The smaller concrete mixers do the same thing as the huge ones, but they are more portable and are for smaller construction jobs. Mini concrete mixers are a good size for most residential uses and constructions — sidewalk or driveway repairs, patio jobs, etc. A mini concrete mixer is small enough to easily access points in the yard and garden. Mini concrete mixers usually run on electricity and have wheels to get around. The small drum can be tilted by hand to pour the cement.
