Top 100: Durable, Lighter Weight Drum

Made of lightweight composite materials, the McNeilus Revolution ready-mix drum weighs 2,000 pounds less than its steel counterparts, allowing the operator to haul more per load. The drum is aerodynamic and seamless outside, and has fewer places for concrete to build up inside. McNeilus says the drum is more durable and abrasion-resistant than steel, reduces noise, and helps to insulate the mix.
