The first time I saw a volumetric mixer was at the World of Concrete in about 2001. I thought it was amazing: a ready-mixed concrete plant on wheels! I still think they are pretty amazing tools for smaller placements and repair work. You’ll have the chance to see one in action at the 2016 World of Concrete in February. If you want to take the extra step and learn how to operate and calibrate a volumetric mixer, there will be a workshop on Thursday morning (February 4) at the show and the chance to go out to the Gold Lot and operate a volumetric mixer in person.
