Over the past few months we have been completely rebuilding five Dieci F7000 mobile concrete mixers, allowing a major contractor to keep on trucking.
These mixers arrived to us having had a tough life, working 24/7 on a very large UK project.
Since then, under the care of our internal and external workshop teams they are now unrecognisable to what arrived. Engineer Mark Jones explained "the work we are doing here will give these machines another four or five years of useful working life. The machines are put through their paces on site, with each one having seen around 4,000 hours of service. For the most part they are mechanically sound which is a credit to the way they have been maintained."
The job at hand wasn't to just replace but actually improve the specifications on the machine. Clearly though the first job was to remove the layers of residual concrete and, in preparation for shot blasting, the mixer is stripped down to it's bare chassis for that very purpose.
Once the cement was cleared the mechanics roles and jobs included:
The Dieci F7000 mixers feature a 141 hp FPT powertrain and a capacity of 7.0m3. The performance of these mixers on one of the most demanding work sites is a credit to its design and build quality. The fact that this contractor has invested more time and money into them shows how much believe they have in Dieci products.
