A manufacturer of asphalt paving machines for Caterpillar dealers worldwide, 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, Weiler is now offering turnkey truck production, showing its first model at the Caterpillar World of Concrete 2015 booth.Weiler-400

The Weiler 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 Weiler Concrete Mixer 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;
