Consider the Weight of Ready Mix Trucks.
The weight of one of our front-discharge ready mixed trucks can approach nearly 70,000 pounds. The base weight of our trucks are roughly 32,000 pounds. Add an additional 4,000 pounds per cubic yard ordered for total weight. The maximum legal capacity nine cubic yards per truck.
Plan for Space
Space is also an issue, if the area is hard to reach, or access restricted, some aid will be needed to transport the concrete from the truck to where it is being placed. This can be a wheel barrow for small jobs, a motorized buggy for medium sized jobs, or a concrete pump if it is not easily transported or for larger volumes.
