McNeilus Companies Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, delivered 93 McNeilus Standard ready-mix trucks to Cementos Argos, the fifth largest cement producer in Latin America. Seventy-three trucks were delivered to facilities in Colombia and the remaining 20 to those in Panama.
“McNeilus is proud to have been selected by Cementos Argos, one of the world’s largest and most respected ready-mix producers, for this major order,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corp. senior vice president and president of the commercial business segment. “For close to 40 years, the McNeilus brand has stood for quality, reliability and productivity, and these attributes resonate with customers large and small around the globe.”
The McNeilus Standard mixer system has a well-earned reputation for durability and low maintenance. The legendary drum is made from abrasionresistant steel with robotic welding for long life and maximum payload.
The drum fins feature a pair of 3/8-in. carbon steel wear rods to deflect the concrete away from high wear areas for increased life and productivity. Other features include a single-piece spun head, rugged front pedestal design, and a direct drive transmission to evenly distribute the torque load.
