I have listed these broadly in order of cost, except that the cheapest, drum trucks, can become the most expensive if you take small, part loads and take a long time to discharge.

Volumetric trucks don't often come with the ability to mix in a chemical. Therefore those you find via Yellow Pages etc. cannot produce waterproof concrete. I would think that the only trucks that could are bespoke and don't work outside their organisation.

Mixamate have a number of depots and many of their trucks weigh batch concrete and mix it in a pan. They can add a plasticiser and make waterproof concrete.

I have a page about mixing waterproof concrete by hand on the www.waterproofconcrete.co.uk web site.
