FAW 340M10 Overview
Recommended for general construction, the FAW 340M10 Transit Concrete Mixer truck is a 6 x 4 FAW specialty truck manufactured and assembled in China. Though the FAW Group truck brand may not be as popular as Isuzu, Mitsubishi – FUSO, or Foton here in the Philippines, it is an established brand in China. In fact, the state-owned automotive company headquartered in Changchun, Jilin, China has consistently ranked as the leading manufacturer and sales in the medium- and heavy -truck segment for several years in the Chinese domestic market. Its automotive plant can produce more than 300,000 units with sales exceeding annual capacity. FAW trucks include traction, cargo, dump, special purpose, and light trucks covering all three major areas: heavy-, medium-, and light-duty trucks.
FAW 340M10 Interior
Inside this FAW concrete mixer truck is a ‘luxury’ cabin by industry standard. It is fitted with a J5P type cabin with firmly cushioned driver and front passenger seats. At the rear is a sleeper for when the driver needs to take a quick nap on the road. It can also be used as additional storage space but not for additional passengers due to a lack of leg space. The driver seat has air suspension for added comfort. Another ‘luxury’ feature of the truck is the availability of an air conditioning system which is not typically standard in some construction trucks. This is an awesome feature considering that construction sites are often dusty and are made worse with our tropical climate. The dashboard is typical—ergonomic and economical. The plasticky dashboard holds the usual analog-digital cluster and giant steering wheel. Air conditioning vents are located on either side and center of the dash. The center console holds the knobs and switches to operate the mixer as well as the gearbox.
FAW 340M10 Exterior
The FAW 340M10 Transit Concrete Mixer truck’s exterior features the same traditional design consistent with all FAW trucks. The white cabin has a slightly sloped, wide windshield for a commanding view of the road. Below it is a muted matte black front grille with a giant FAW badge smacked at the center. On the lower bumper is a pair of giant rectangular headlights with grills to protect it from damage while on construction sites, and below it are hanging fog lights. On the side are built-it steps for climbing the cabin, wide windows, and massive external side mirrors. There is also a glass window at the rear of the cabin for added visibility on the drum. The cab itself is made of all metal with an integral front tilting angle of 37 degrees. On the rear is a 9 cubic meter drum with spout and ladder. On the side is a 400L Aluminum fuel tank and WABCO Valve. Curb weight is at 15,000 kg while the overall size of the truck is 9,500 mm long, 2,490 mm wide, 3,700 mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 4,000 mm + 1,350 mm. This FAW truck rides on a set of 12.00R20 -18PR radial, double coin brand tires.
FAW 340M10 Ride & Handling
This FAW transit concrete mixer truck is best driven by capable and skilled professional drivers. Handling an enormous machine like this one requires a certain level of experience and expertise. Navigating it through the paved road requires as much attention as driving it through the rough construction sites. The ability of the truck to transport mortar/ concrete from the plant to the site is safe with the mechanisms in place. And at full capacity, expect the drive to be slow and long. Though it may not be the fastest truck, this FAW mixer truck is reliable with a stable engine power that reacts to the gearbox sans with a momentary delay. With the proper timing of the clutch, the engine can roar continuously. For riding comfort, seats are cushioned firmly with a heavy-duty fabric cover. This FAW truck took extra detail to ensure that the driver has ample support and feels comfortable while working out the mixer on-site or driving the truck.
