    We certainly are on this side of the border, although two counties over, they are having the most cases/100K in the US. Statewide, though, it's pretty much over, only those counties that didn't see much of it in the last six months are shooting up. Overall we're way down in cases, and hospitalizations and deaths are pretty minimal.

    they have 44t as GCW, arocs 44x is about 8200kg, semitrailer is 8550 hydraulic with cooling about 300kg, you get about 650L of water..so you left 11m3 of legal payload. trailer is made for 12m3, we would load about 13m3 with some 14k lbs overload

    how much more does this front discharge cost over normal mixer?

    here we can go 10.5-11q yards on 8x4. but in this case need to take care about weight, this means alu wheels, goodyear tires, alu air tanks, no hub reduction axles and reinforced suspension... my specs dont really come along with this.

    I don’t know the price.... but the only places that use rear discharge mixers are big cities. Where every job is pump or crane placement. Outside the cities the crews do not want rear discharge on the jobs at all........
