Automobiles, Construction, Rotating
A cement mixer may just win the award for scariest truck to drive behind. The rotating barrel holds hundreds of pounds of liquid concrete, which will cost hundreds of pounds of dollars to fix if it glorps all over your car. The rotating barrel is a stroke of genius, keeping the cement from setting while inside the truck on the way to its destination. In fact, spinning the barrel one way keeps the cement inside, and spinning the opposite way pours the cement out. Have you ever experienced the feeling of perfectly smooth, freshly dried cement under your feet or wheels? Likely not. Local children can't resist making hand prints or writing messages in the stuff before it sets.
