The quality of a mixer truck can basically be determined from four aspects: chassis, bodywork, reducer , and hydraulic motor.
When purchasing a mixer truck, you can distinguish the advantages and disadvantages from three aspects: first, the selection of the chassis; second, the reducer, hydraulic oil pump motor;The third is the design structure, material selection and production process control of the bodywork.
● Selection of chassis
1. Imported chassis
At present, the imported chassis on the market generally include Isuzu (ISUZU), Nissan Diesel (UD), Mitsubishi (FUSO), and Hino (HINO).
The advantages are low maintenance rate, good maneuverability and fuel economy. The disadvantage is that the price is too high.
2. Domestic chassis
Domestically produced chassis generally include: FAW (Xindawei), Sinotruk (HOWO), JAC, Dongfeng (Hercules), Hualing, Foton, Shaanxi Auto, etc.
The advantage is that the price is cheap (the difference can be hundreds of thousands), and the maintenance is convenient and the maintenance cost is low. The disadvantage is that the handling is slightly poor and there are many minor problems. Those who have the ability to buy imported chassis should choose imported chassis. First, the attendance rate is high and the failure rate is low (the most important thing for the mixer truck is not to be damaged. If the cement solidifies, it will be miserable and it will be blasted), and the second is to save oil. Money can subsidize the difference. Of course, if the economic strength of individual purchases is relatively weak, it is more affordable to buy domestic products, and the cost recovery is quicker. After all, business is not as easy as before.
● Reducer , hydraulic motor
The key parts we assembled onto the chassis such as reducers and hydraulic motors are mostly imported . At present, the best configuration reducer is ZF (ZF) hydraulic pump of Germany Rexroth or KYB of Japan, and ARK of Italy, and the current market has a good reputation.
● The quality of the bodywork
The quality of the bodywork is mainly reflected in the design structure and material selection and the control of the production process. Some vehicles with a design structure have a high center of gravity , so the speed is relatively fast, if the center of gravity is too high, it will easily lead to rollover .
The selection of materials is mainly cylinder body, feeding hopper and the discharge chute. The quality of the steel plate determines the service life of the truck, so if you pay too much attention to the low price, you will definitely be harmed by it in use.
The production process is precised controlled by our production line. It is our professional field to have techinicians and engineers who understand welding technology , and we use auto welding with robots. But other supplier use the welding , basically adopts carbon dioxide gas shielded welding (CO2) which will cause weld cracking in future use.
The last is the anti-rust treatment on the bottom, which generally adopts sandblasting treatment. Some manufacturers use manual grinding or no grinding at all in order to save costs. We have seen that many other parts of the truck running on the road are defective, but the cylinder has been rusted.
So we suggest clients select us for his mixer truck , because our production line is professional and the key processings are all operated by auto robot program . Our bodywork processing is more serious and professional and when receiving different chassis , we have mature program to match up with different chassis with our bodywork.
