Top 10 Concrete Pump Chassis Manufacturers in The World
If you are a concrete pump truck driver, do you know which heavy-duty truck chassis are currently used in the concrete pump on the market? More well-known manufactures brands include Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Isuzu, etc., So, do you know who has the top ten heavy-duty truck brands in the world? Let’s take an inventory together.
I believe everyone is familiar with this brand. Many concrete pump trucks use Isuzu chassis, which has the advantages of low noise, abundant power, and relatively fuel-efficient. It is also a heavy-duty chassis with a very good price/performance ratio.
As a chassis manufacturers, it was established in 1937 and officially changed its name to “Isuzu” in 1949. It is currently one of the oldest commercial truck manufacturers in the world. Decades of technology accumulation have allowed it to be used in the heavy truck field. It does have strong competitive strength, and its models are also famous for their sturdiness, durability, and heavy load.
Concrete pump truck needs a strong chassis as support when it works. At the same time, it requires the engine to work continuously and with high intensity. Therefore, the overall performance of the engine is very high, and the Isuzu engine remains very stable. Working status, therefore, being able to rank tenth among the global heavy-duty truck brands is also a manifestation of its technical strength.
Compared with Isuzu, this brand’s reputation in China is relatively low, because we can’t see this brand in China. It is a chassis manufacturers in the Czech Republic, founded in 1850, and Mercedes-Benz produced the first four-wheeler. This brand was in 1886. Therefore, for 160 years, Tetra has made outstanding contributions to the development of the world’s truck design concept. Its heavy-duty chassis are also outstanding in the world’s traditional engineering construction field of products. At the same time, Tetra’s heavy-duty chassis is also used in various aspects, including concrete pump chassis
Iveco is one of the chassis manufacturers under the Italian Fiat . In 1975, five companies including Fiat, France, and Germany-Fiat Automobile Industry, OM, Lancia Special Purpose Vehicle, Unic, and Maggiore-jointly established the production Iveco Commercial Vehicle Group, a production consortium of trucks, buses, and diesel engines, is part of the Fiat Group. After years of development, Iveco has become the first in the mid-size commercial vehicle and engine market, and the second in the passenger car market. Headquartered in the northern Italian city of Doolin. Iveco is one of the brands under the Italian Fiat car factory.

This is a concrete pump chassis manufacturer from the Netherlands. On April 1, 1928, DAF was established by the two brothers of Van Doorne, Hub and Wim, initially as a car repair shop. In November 1996, DAF Trucks was acquired by Paccar. Today, DAF trucks account for nearly 13% of the European commercial heavy vehicle market, surpassing Scania’s 12.7% market share, and have a certain leading position in the European market. Currently, it is not sold in mainland China. However, Taiwan’s Taishuo Motors introduced DAF heavy trucks for assembly and production in Taiwan in 2013, and sold them in the Taiwan market under the Chinese brand “Dafu Heavy Trucks”.
I believe everyone is familiar with the Renault brand. Dongfeng Renault is its China passenger car joint venture brand. It is known for its more romantic design of French cars. However, in addition to passenger cars, Renault is also in the field of commercial vehicles. Has a high reputation.
The predecessor of Renault Trucks was Saviem, a subsidiary established by Renault in 1956. The purpose of establishing a subsidiary is to produce trucks and buses in a unified manner. In the 1970s French auto industry mergers and acquisitions, Saviem merged with another company Berlist and became Renault Heavy Vehicle Company.
Hino is a commercial truck brand under Toyota. In 1918, the first truck produced was a TGE-A truck. In 1942, the new entity Hino Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. (Hino Heavy Industry Co., Ltd.) was separated from Diesel Automobile Industry Co., Ltd., and the name Hino was born. In 1967, after becoming a part of Toyota Motor, it mainly produces trucks chassis and buses.
In China, Hino mostly appeared in the form of mixer trucks and concrete pump chassis, and its reputation in the country was still quite high. At the same time, there was also a concrete pump using Hino chassis in the early days. I believe that many old drivers have driven Hino concrete pump trucks.
MAN can be translated as MAN, MAN, and Lion. These three letters are composed of the first letter of the company’s predecessor, Maschinenfabrik Augsburg Nürnberg (Augsburg-Nuremberg Machinery Factory Co., Ltd.). It is machinery headquartered in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. manufacturer.
MAN’s historical roots can be traced back to 1758. The predecessor of the MAN Group was the “St. Anthony Ironworks”. Established) merged into “Augsburg Joint Machinery Plant and Nuremberg Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd.”. In 1908, it was renamed “Augsburg-Nuremberg Machine Works Joint Stock Company”, referred to as M.A.N. Mixer trucks and pump trucks based on MAN chassis are more common in European and American markets. In the domestic market, Steyr Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of MAN Group, signed a technology license agreement with China National Heavy Duty Truck Group in 1983. It also has a large number of users in China, and its reputation and quality are well-known.
At present, Mercedes-Benz’s concrete pump truck chassis are mainly based on the Actros series, which was launched by Mercedes-Benz in 1996 and weighs more than 18 tons. It is mainly positioned in the fields of long-distance logistics and mechanical engineering. Its main competitors are Scania, Iveco Trakker, MAN TGA, and other models. The concrete pump chassis are mainly based on the two models of 3341 and 4141. China’s main concrete pump truck manufacturers all use the Mercedes-Benz chassis. Its advantages are abundant power, sturdiness and durability, reliability, safety, and excellent operating economy.
What we know most about Volvo are its passenger trucks. However, at the same time, Volvo is also a world-renowned truck chassis manufacturer. Volvo is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial transportation and construction equipment, mainly engaged in the production of trucks, buses, construction heavy-duty equipment, marine, and industrial application drive systems, and aerospace and aviation equipment. At the same time, Volvo produced the first truck in 1928.
In China, Volvo truck chassis has also been adopted by concrete pump truck chassis very early, and its performance is very superior in many chassis. Today, there are still many concrete pump trucks using Volvo chassis working on construction sites.
Known as the “King of the Road”, Scania is one of Sweden’s truck and bus manufacturers. It was established in 1891 and is now headquartered in Södertalje. It has production lines outside Sweden, including the Netherlands, Argentina, and Brazil. In the year 1982, Scania had exported the first batch of heavy trucks to Taiwan; it entered the Hong Kong market in 1984, and China began to introduce Scania in the 2000s. European and American countries also use Scania chassis to produce mixer trucks. However, in China, there is currently no Scania chassis mixer. The main reason is that the chassis is too expensive and the purchase cost is too high. At present, it mainly cooperates with Zoomlion in China to provide concrete pump truck chassis for it. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Zoomlion in 2012, Zoomlion used Scania to provide it with a 7-bridge chassis to build the world’s longest 101-meter concrete boom pump truck.
