Maintenance schedule:

Concrete mixers are a very important piece of machinery that needs to be taken care of properly to prevent problems from occurring. If the mixer breaks down in the middle of a job, it could end up costing the company a lot of extra money that could have been avoided by following a general maintenance routine. In order for these machines to work correctly, they need regular maintenance to ensure all of the concrete mixer parts are in good shape and working properly.

Guidelines are as below :

  • Check specific manufacturers service intervals for petrol & diesel engines supplied with your mixer. Here you would change air filters, spark plugs oil etc after specific running times.
  • Clean out air filters daily
  • Wash machine after every use
  • Grease mixer nipples weekly
  • Check oil before every use
  • Replace pinion gear when worn as not to damage ring gear
  • Check all bolts and nuts from time to time as they could work loose overtime from vibration.
  • Check v-belts on a regular basis for correct tension and condition.
