Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Volumetric Mixer?
Though similar in size to a traditional drum mixer, a volumetric mixer (or site-mix truck) makes concrete. It is a concrete mixer on a truck that houses separate bins containing rock, sand, and cement as well as a water tank. Once on site, the truck has the capability of mixing precisely measured amounts of aggregate, cement, and water according to pre-programmed specifications for each job. In a nutshell, each truck is a mobile batch plant!
Is the quality the same as a traditional-style mixer?
Yes! We use the same ingredients from the same sources. But, the biggest advantage is that our product is a fresh as you can get because our product is not mixed until we arrive at your job site.
What are the benefits of site-mixed concrete?
- you pay for what you use
