TITLE  
Truck mixer drum stabilisers
ARTICLE
Tarmac Northern North Area (Concrete & Mortar) has devised a simple and ergonomically efficient system to eliminate the entrapment risk during truck mixer drum maintenance. At such times, removal of residue concrete causes the balance of the drum to change, giving the drum the potential to turn. Traditionally, to immobilise the drum, wooden chocks are wedged underneath either side. However, the chocks are cumbersome and awkward to handle. Availability is not always ideal!

Tarmac's system comprises of two flat steel bars, which are fitted and bolted in position either side of the bell end of the drum. The bolts are attached to the drum and vehicle chassis.
