Concrete Mixers: How to Achieve the Construction Quality You Deserve



Are you getting tired of staying indoors all day, but have no place to enjoy the sunny skies and cool breeze within your own home? As the summer months start to creep in, homeowners and business owners across South Africa have recently begun to update and improve various aspects of their homes and businesses in terms of their construction and design, allowing many to now enjoy the environments that they have been striving for, no matter what time of the year, indoors or outdoors. By simply reading this brief but informative article, you too can start to understand how and why certain concrete mixers and other high-performance tools and machines are being used on construction projects such as this, as well as how BS Power can help you acquire them for your own projects.




The Benefits of Using Certain Concrete Mixers on Your Construction Site


As is surely already well known by practically all home and business owners across the world, constructing a building is no easy task and is most certainly not for the faint of heart. Construction projects can almost always be seen as a gargantuan task, no matter how small or large the final constructed building may be. This is not only due to how lengthy and costly such projects can be for practically any construction company, but also due to the immense number of machines and tools that are needed on-site, as well as the knowledge and experience needed to operate such tools in a safe and efficient manner.


It is also incredibly important that the right tools and machines are chosen for each project specifically, as nothing can get in the way of a smooth construction site than being over or underequipped for the job at hand. This is the main reason as to why the planning stages of any building project is of the most importance, as it is needed to prepare you for every single stage of construction moving forward.


Once the schematics, overall design and measurements of the building have been agreed upon, one of the first pieces of equipment to be sought after would be concrete mixers. Before their invention in the year 1900, construction workers were often forced to mix concrete by hand. Not only would this have required far more workers to be on-site at any given moment, leading to increased expenses through salaries, but would have also taken far more time and energy, which in itself could prove to increase the costs of each building to an almost nauseating degree.


It is by looking back that we are able to appreciate the steps that have been taken to provide construction workers with automated and comparatively effortless concrete mixers in the modern-day. What makes things even better for today’s construction sites is the fact that these mixers are manufactured in all shapes and sizes to accommodate practically any project you may find yourself working on, ensuring that you are always equipped and ready to tackle any and all tasks at hand.




How to Choose the Right Concrete Mixers for Your Construction Site


To definitively know which cement mixer would be best suited towards your particular project, you would first need to establish a number of details before placing your orders. Firstly, it is a good idea to keep in mind of how large the construction site may be as well as how much concrete is needed for each particular project. Secondly, it is also wise to know for sure how often you will be making use of your concrete mixer, as it would be an utter waste and a shame to spend ample amounts of your hard-earned cash on an oversized mixer that does not suit a smaller construction site, and vice versa!


To start things at a very basic level, many home renovations are done by first time builders, often being the homeowners themselves. In cases like this, construction may only take place once in a while as the homeowners tackle certain parts of their house from section to section over a prolonged period of time. If this seems at all similar to the form of construction you would be getting into, then smaller concrete and cement mixers are highly recommended. Often coming in an electric form, these mixers have a reduced carrying capacity of just 120 litres, which allows for far easier manoeuvrability when in more confined building locations.


Climbing up the ladder somewhat we have the more occasional builders, those who own small businesses but are still able to work on multiple construction sites throughout the year, often at the same time too. If this seems closer to your current situation, and the construction sites that you find yourself working on come equipped with electrical supplies, then a concrete mixer with a carrying capacity ranging from 120 litres to 190 litres may be perfect for you, depending on the scale of your construction of course.




Such concrete mixers are still light and manoeuvrable enough to transport from site to site, ensuring that you can always stay in full control of the situation at hand. You should also make sure to keep in mind that if you are working on smaller sites, then larger carrying capacities can potentially lead to concrete becoming dried up and eventually wasted, while also taking up far more space and becoming harder to transport across the site.


Right at the top, we have professional, privately-owned construction companies that can be found on multiple sites on any given day of the week. Such companies need heavy duty equipment that allows for the construction site to flow as smoothly and as effortlessly as possible so as to avoid any hiccups and setbacks, especially when large amounts of money and time are involved.


For companies such as this, it is often recommended that one or more concrete mixers are used across each construction site, with a carrying capacity of 250 litres at the bare minimum. As mixers of this size and proportion come equipped with a petrol-powered engine, it is not necessary for you to make sure that the site you are working in is in supply of electricity, unlike what is required when using other cement mixers. It should also be noted that due to the size of these mixers, however, it may not always be possible to move them around the site with ease, although this lack of manoeuvrability is made up by larger quantities of cement and a much more efficient level of output.
