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.
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; www.weilerproducts.com
