A range of specialised concrete mixers and dump trucks imported into New Zealand provide a potential solution in a range of challenging contracting situations.

A handful Dieci dumpers and mixers have been brought into New Zealand by Webbline Agriculture and are set to be delivered to a major Auckland infrastructure project.

Known for their range of Italian-sourced telehandlers, Dieci‘s latest dumpers and mixers offer compact design, four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering, as well as a reversible driving position. This allows the machine to be driven directly to and from a tight worksite without needing a turning bay or requiring the operator to reverse the machine.

The enclosed cabs have double-swung doors to provide easy access, an open-door safety lock, and  are ROPS and FOPS rated for both roll-over and falling object protection.

Webbline‘s Dieci product specialist, Tim Currie, says the design of the machines opens up a wide range of options when it comes to the applications they can be used for.

“Both the concrete mixers and the tippers have a much smaller footprint than standard trucks, but still have a comparatively large payload capacity, given how compact they are,” he says. “This makes them ideal for worksites that have limited space or where larger vehicles are impractical.

“One of the really key features for us is the manoeuvrability, which is outstanding because of the four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steer. This makes these trucks highly functional in situations that would normal be really difficult to work in.”

F7000 mixers are the largest in the specialised Dieci range

  • Options – bowl mounted on a rotating platform, allowing discharge of the concrete from the side of the vehicle rather than the rear.

Dumper is one of the larger in the Dieci range
