Terex FDB7000 Transit Mixer

September 28, 2010

The Terex FDB7000 front-discharge transit mixer from Terex Roadbuilding, with an 11-cubic yard mixer and a gross permissible weight of 79,500 pounds, is now the largest unit in the Terex mixer-truck line. The FDB7000’s new Total Control System features an electric-over-hydraulic joystick that operates drum start/stop; material charge/discharge; main chute up/down and left/right; and fold/unfold of optional hydraulic folding chutes — plus it controls truck forward/reverse travel direction on the jobsite when the operator switches travel control from the dashboard to the joystick. The FDB7000 uses an Allison automatic transmission and incorporates a vertical muffler with an integrated diesel particulate filter, side-by-side radiator and air cooler, plus hydraulic demand flow (providing uninterrupted flow for steering while positioning the chute).
