Concrete Agitator Truck Hire Rates Guide

A concrete agitator truck is sometimes called an ‘Agi Truck’ colloquially. You can hire an Agi Truck and fill it with concrete yourself or you can order a concrete delivery, which uses Agi Trucks, and brings the concrete to your site to place in your existing formwork.

Concrete Agi Truck hire rates vary based on the truck type, capacity, and duration of the hire. To assist in budgeting, we've compiled average hire rates for various concrete trucks. These rates serve as a guideline to help plan your expenses:

Concrete Agitator Truck TypeCapacities (m3)Average Hire Rate (Per 4 Hour Minimum)
Standard Agi Truck6.0 - 8.0 m3$450 - $650
Semi Agi Truck9.0 - 12.0 m3$650 - $850
Mini Agi Truck2.5 - 4.5 m3$350 - $550

Over and above the cost of hiring the agitator truck, you can hire these trucks on the basis of truck and concrete included. These prices are usually presented on a per-square-metre basis.

Rates for Concrete Delivery

These rates are for standard weekday concrete deliveries to central metro locations. Prices vary greatly if travel distances are greater or if you require delivery outside of general working hours. Concrete is usually delivered in the morning due to how concrete is poured and set, so prices can surge if you want a delivery time in the early morning. You can negotiate better rates with suppliers if you request a concrete pour in the afternoon when the trucks are less in demand.

Types of concrete are measured with these units:

  • Megapascals: Megapascals (MPa) measure the compressive strength of concrete, indicating its capacity to withstand loads. Higher MPa values signify stronger concrete, suitable for structures requiring high durability.
  • Aggregate Size: Aggregate size in concrete mix affects the strength, workability, and durability of the finished product. Smaller aggregates are used for smoother finishes, while larger ones are for stronger, more robust applications.
  • Slump: Slump measures the consistency and flowability of concrete before it sets, indicating the ease of placement. A higher slump value means the concrete is wetter and more fluid, ideal for complex forms or detailed work.

Most concrete delivery companies offer concrete mix products ranging from 20-50 MPa compressive strength, with a design slump from 20 to 120, and they can mix in aggregates including 10mm, 14mm, and 20mm.

Megapascals (strength), Aggregate Size, SlumpPrice per Square Metre

25/20/80$265 - $275

Concrete Delivery Safety Requirements

Most of the big providers of concrete in Australia have stringent requirements about the circumstances on your jobsite where it is safe and not safe to deliver concrete.

Consider these issues when preparing to take a concrete delivery to your site, and we recommend reaching out to your provider to ask for their requirements. This is because they will charge you if you order concrete and they visit your site, and you’ve not met their delivery requirements. It can very expensive very fast – so comply with their rules to avoid being charged (and not getting your concrete delivered when you need it).

  • Traffic Management: Safe, legal parking areas must be designated for trucks. Authorized traffic control is necessary when discharging in traffic-prone areas or hazardous positions, requiring barriers and safety cones.
  • Environmental Protections: Trucks must not contaminate public roads upon departure. Sites must provide wheel wash facilities and designated areas for chute washdown to prevent stormwater contamination.
  • Overhead and Power Line Safety: Maintain minimum approach distances from power lines, varying from 0.9 meters for activities under power lines up to 8 meters for work above 330,000 volts. Spotters are mandatory within specific distances to ensure safety.
  • Open Trenches and Ramps: Trucks must stay at least the depth of the trench plus one meter away, with access roads needing to be at least 3 meters wide and clear of debris.
  • Pumping Guidelines: A secure area for concrete pumping must be established, free from obstructions and ensuring the pump is placed on solid, level ground. The area must be clear of excavations and soft ground.
  • Road Surfaces and Gradients: The road surface must support the concrete truck's weight, with forward and cross slopes not exceeding a 1:10 gradient. Roads must be self-draining and of sufficient width for safe maneuvering.

These necessary preparations and safety considerations for accepting concrete deliveries ensure you meet provider guidelines, avoid penalties, and the timely and safe delivery of concrete.
