A manufacturer of asphalt paving machines for Caterpillar dealers world wide, whose contract production log includes a decade of concrete mixer drum system deliveries, has expanded its branded lines. After acquiring a mixer system design and intellectual property, Knoxville, Iowa-based Weiler Inc. is now offering complete truck models, showing its first vehicle at the Caterpillar World of Concrete 2015 booth.
The Weiler Concrete Mixer is especially geared for the CT660 and CT681 on-highway models Caterpillar debuted at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2011 and 2014, respectively. Mounted on a CT681 with set-forward axle, the premier model has an 11-yd. drum with AR 200 steel shell and fins; patented self-aligning bridge axle for easy maintenance; patent-pending auto drum for reduced operating cost; hydraulic chute lock for cold operating conditions; robust chute pivot; unique, safety-minded ladder design; plus, industry standard pumps, motors, and wear items. Heading the truck launch among Cat dealers and across the industry is Weiler Mixer Products General Manager Dave Melhus, 641/828-5254; www.weilerproducts.com.
