The new McNeilus next generation mixer drum provides a wide range of customer benefits – including increased capacity, a lower center of gravity, and more efficient mixing.

McNeilus Companies, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation, today introduced the new McNeilus next generation mixer drum at CONAGG – CON/EXPO in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Engineered with input from ready-mix producers from across the country, the new McNeilus next generation mixer drum provides a wide range of customer benefits – including increased capacity, a lower center of gravity, and more efficient mixing.

“The McNeilus next generation mixer drum represents a significant advance in productivity for ready-mix producers, large and small,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of the Commercial business segment. “Engineered with extensive input from customers, its innovative design and unique features enable it to carry additional payload, mix more efficiently, and deliver excellent bottom-line results.”

The new McNeilus next generation mixer drum features a patent pending drum design that moves the center of gravity down and forward to enhance capacity without increasing wheelbase. The more spherical shape enables more efficient mixing. Plus, the optional drumhead impeller minimizes hydraulic drag and helps the mixing cycle.
