  • Patent number: 7510319
    Abstract: A truck mounted concrete mixer includes a mixing drum (1) rotatable about longitudinal axis (2) having a drum head (3) and an open end (4) to receive batch materials to be mixed. A pair of generally helical mixing blades (5) are disposed within the drum (1) but instead of extending to the drum head (3) as occurs in standard concrete mixers, the mixing blades terminate short of the drum head (3) and a second blade (6) extends from each mixing blade (5) toward the drum head (3) at an angle of about 90° to the helical blade (5) and at a height greater than that of the adjoining mixing blade. This height difference defines a spillway formation (7) above the mixing blade (5).
