McNeilus Brings Industry-Leading Controls and Support Innovations to CONEXPO 2017
Booth #S60309 highlights new McNeilus FLEX Controls, washout system, lightweight drum, and support advances
DODGE CENTER, Minn. (March 2, 2017) – McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is showcasing its new advanced control system, a new lightweight drum, a new washout system, and industry-leading support at CONEXPO 2017, March 7-11, 2017, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to these innovations, the company will showcase seven McNeilus vehicles in booth #S60309. Eight additional McNeilus vehicles will be featured in partner booths throughout the show.
“We are pleased to be bringing one of the industry’s most advanced controls system to CONEXPO,” said Brad Nelson, president, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., and Oshkosh Corporation’s Commercial Segment. “And we’re introducing other innovations the industry will love, showcasing the strength and innovation of McNeilus.”
Patent-pending McNeilus FLEX Controls provide an unprecedented level of performance and accuracy that allows better, more precise mixing. All in a flexible, cost-effective package. FLEX Controls are the ‘brains of the operation,’ consolidating complete mixer monitoring onto one screen. The system is designed for continuous innovation, building in future upgrade capability to meet evolving customer needs. Stop by Booth #S60309 to see the latest upgrades.
A new lightweight advancement to the patented M80 Series drum that saves almost 900 pounds of weight will be unveiled. The M80 LW model uses an AR450 abrasion-resistant steel shell with interior steel specifically configured for an optimal balance of thickness and longevity.
A new patent-pending washout system virtually eliminates the need to access the top of the mixer for cleaning. The patent-pending system saves time, cleaning the main chute, hopper, and both sides of rear fins. It provides a more thorough cleaning further into the drum than other systems on the market.
Show attendees will get a firsthand look at the options and product range McNeilus offers, including the McNeilus Standard, Bridgemaster® and Global SF Rear Discharge Mixers, Oshkosh S-Series™ Front Discharge Mixer, and sister company’s London Mixer, all familiar names to ready-mix producers. McNeilus customers can choose from several options and configurations, including McNeilus brand compressed natural gas options to meet the needs of any fleet vehicle. Innovations in drums, controls, lightweight materials, technology, and operator assurance result in the most replicated trucks in the industry.
The booth also showcases McNeilus’ dedicated, factory-direct sales and support network backed by nearly 30 strategically located North American branches and service centers. Support is available before, during and after the sale – serving customers both locally and nationally. McNeilus customers can take advantage of flexible in-house financing options, trade-in and used equipment opportunities, along with a national service team that provides on-site product and service training.
The Street Smart Parts™ display at the booth highlights the 24/7/365 availability of quality OEM parts and parts for any make or model. Street Smart Service™ also offers 24/7 technical support over the phone, and certified technicians are on-call in local service centers to repair or refurbish any make or model. The Street Smart by McNeilus brand offers solution-based programs, such as Street Smart Vision™ and Street Smart Contamination Control™, to help protect and extend the service life of a fleet.
A number of chassis manufacturers – Kenworth, Peterbilt, Mack, International and Freightliner – are also including McNeilus mixers as a part of their CONEXPO displays.
