The FLEETMIX A30G Agitator Truck was conceived from an idea to provide a cost effective solution formining operations to move concrete both efficiently and safely around the minesite. Previously, concrete hasbeen taken around sites by road style vehicles, unsuitable to the mining environment and not fit for purpose - ultimately leading to safety and efficiency issues and incidents. Inadequate systems, particularly braking
systems, causing losses to productivity, operator injuries and in turn, an increase in operating costs.
While other purpose-built concrete trucks for underground applications currently exist in the market, many are slow, cumbersome and they have no residual value at the end of their lifecycle due to the ad-hoc modifcations made to the OEM truck to convert it for underground use.
The FLEETMIX concept centers around making only minimal changes to the original body of the truck, itssystems or its key functionality, thereby leaving better residual value and the ability to change the truck backat the end of its mining life cycle. The rear system can also be removed from the truck body and reattached to a new truck, meaning the costs of replacement is far lower.
