In what it is describing as the first commercially-available compressed natural gas (CNG) concrete mixer, McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing will offer a choice of Bridgemaster and standard versions on either a Kenworth W900 or T800 chassis. Meeting EPA 2010 heavy-duty engine emission standards for nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, the CNG-powered concrete mixers will be fitted with a six-cylinder, 8.9-liter Cummins ISL G engines developed by Cummins Westport of Canada. CNG platforms for other manufacturer's chassis are pending, says McNeilus.
Putzmeister America's new line of concrete mixer trucks includes the Pro Series standard and a Bridge Maxx Series with a booster axle.
Front discharge market continues dismal, so the company is examining its mixer truck for improvements in efficiency and maintainability for relaunch later this year
