Putzmeister America Launches Line of Mixer Trucks

A new line of concrete mixer trucks includes the Pro Series standard and a Bridge Maxx Series with a booster axle. Both bodies can be mounted on any heavy truck chassis, the company says. Both drums have a standard 43-inch discharge opening and a 47-inch paver discharge opening. The drum is 3/16-inch thick with a 1/4-inch-thick one-piece pressed and dished head 78 inches in diameter. The ErgonicMix Control (EMC) is a fully programmable control system that balances engine speed with hydraulic pump output to achieve the optimum drum speed, the company says. Minimum and maximum drum speeds are programmable to batch plant preference.

The Bridge Maxx Series features a booster axle with hydraulic suspension powered by a pressure-compensating variable-displacement pump for excellent axle loading consistency, reduced frame stress, and safer highway travel.
