Why FLEX Controls

The innovative FLEX Controls system is a control system for concrete mixer trucks. It offers complete mixer monitoring, diagnostics and troubleshooting in one screen. It is fully integrated into the mixer body so it can send mixer data to the driver to keep the truck running efficiently. This technology is available only from McNeilus with patented and patent pending features.

FLEX Controls is fully customizable. From Auto Load at the plant to System Washout after the delivery, FLEX Controls makes it easier than ever to get the job of loading, mixing, hauling and delivering done right.

Simply put, FLEX Controls can help extend the life of your mixer. Easy diagnostics and troubleshooting help identify issues before they become bigger problems, and help reduce stress on the vehicle.

FLEX Controls with an Automatic Washout System removes the need for drivers to climb up and down the ladder after each pour, to help minimize slip and fall opportunities. Now drivers can get their washout done from the ground, with the simple push of a button.

FLEX Controls has been honored as an MIP, Most Innovative Product, for two consecutive years and Construction Equipment named the system a Top 100 New Product in 2017.
