Roadmaster Concrete Mixers at Hillhead 2014

May 15, 2014

Hillhead is a biennial trade show held on site at Lafarge Tarmac’s Hillhead quarry, located off the A515 south of Buxton in the Peak District. The show focuses on heavy duty construction and quarrying equipment, and around 450 suppliers of plant and equipment will be exhibiting their products and services.

This year, the show runs from the 24th to the 26th June, and takes place in a working quarry with large-scale demonstrations of working equipment. Most of the exhibits are outdoors, so it’s wise to wear appropriate clothing and suitable footwear.

Roadmaster Concrete Mixers

Roadmaster Concrete Mixers will be exhibiting our range of volumetric concrete mixers at stall B14, and everyone interested in the latest concepts in concrete mixing should make a point of visiting the stand to see the latest products.

Volumetric Concrete Mixers: Roadmaster manufactures volumetric concrete mixing trucks that mix concrete on site. This innovative approach is cost-effective as the customer only pays for the concrete actually required and this method results in less wastage. This technique of onsite mixing means that volumetric mixing trucks are cheaper than traditional drum mixer trucks and has the further advantage of a higher output rate.

Concrete Pumping: There are many situations where it is not possible for a large concrete truck to dispense concrete where it is needed. Roadmaster have a range of mobile concrete pumps that can transfer liquid concrete from the mixer to the required location, from boom mounted pumps to trailer mounted pump.
