FLEX Controls Bridgemaster® Mixer Innovations
The innovative FLEX Controls™ system equipped on McNeilus concrete mixers offers an unprecedented level of performance and accuracy that allows reliable and precise mixing. Customer-driven innovations include:
- GradeMaster™ Technology: GradeMaster™ technology automatically detects when the truck is on an incline and spins the drum faster to keep the mix farther forward in the drum.
- Build-up Detection: This detection system determines how much to load and when to chip and helps avoid those overweight fees.
- Auto-Load Mode: FLEX Controls™ detects material loading and automatically engages load mode. This saves on fuel and extends equipment life.

- 11-cubic-yard M80 Series™ drum
