Optimum efficiency at the toughest work sites
Apollo Carmix 4TT reflects the top features that has made Carmix a bestseller worldwide for 40 years and it is highly appreciated in India as well. This model is ideal for the toughest job sites because it is compact, versatile and easily manoeuvrable, offering technologies and tools that produce the perfect mix design. Apollo Carmix 4TT is fitted with a drum with 270° rotation. It also has a four-wheel drive and steering system to tackle 30 per cent gradients when fully loaded.

Industrial design and technologies to increase productivity
All the construction details of the Apollo Carmix 4TT have been designed to facilitate the work of its operators and optimise productivity at job sites. For example, the front cab ensures wide visibility during the concrete production stages, whereas the hydraulic loading shovel, designed to ensure the accurate loading of cement and aggregates, can be manoeuvred using the Joymix system. Moreover, the electronic weighing system allows the operator to control all the data regarding the concrete to obtain the perfect mix design. Finally, the engine, installed at the rear, facilitates maintenance operations and machine balance as well as better visibility and comfort for the operator.
