This Zoomlion Concrete Truck Mixer model is the 10m capacity version. 

It is in the unusual scale of 1:38.

Packaging

The model comes in an Zoomlion branded box with a carry handle.  Inside it, the model is contained within expanded polystyrene trays which clip together.

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

A pointer tool is provided with the model, and the only assembly is adding the chute extension.

Detail

The truck chassis is very detailed with the transmission modelled and various tanks.  The wheels are plastic and look good, although the tyres are the same on all axles, and they have a simple tread pattern.

The cab is branded as a Shacman M3000S and the grille, lights, and plastic mirrors look good.  The interior detail is good also.  There is a ZL 2021 number plate.

Behind the cab is a metal water tank, with a hose running to it.

The drum is metal.  It has a detailed access hatch, and the graphics are very sharp.

At the back there are plastic access stairs on both sides.  The loading hopper is very nicely modelled with texture detail.  The chute is metal, and there is a metal extension chute which has a magnet incorporated so it sticks to the top of the wheel arch, which is a very nice touch.

At the back the light holder and protection bar is metal, and the lights have plastic lenses.

Features

The model rolls well, and the steering achieves a moderate angle.  Moving the steering also rotates the steering wheel slightly.

The cab has doors which open and shut.  It also tilts to reveal a detailed plastic engine.

The drum spins smoothly.

The chute rotates smoothly.  It has a flap which can be lowered for transport mode. The extension chute can be clipped on.

Quality

It has a high metal content with some plastic used.  The quality level is very good.

The paintwork and graphics are also very good.

Price

It is good value overall.

Overall

This is a nice model and the Zoomlion livery is an attractive colour scheme.  It goes very well with other Zoomlion models in the concrete sector.
