The mixer truck Terex Corp. dispatched to its sprawling Las Vegas Convention Center Silver Lot exhibit was not quite the four- to seven-axle, front discharge model customers have come to expect for a ConExpo-Con/Agg production. Those visiting the manufacturer this year saw the premier of the all-electric Terex Advance Mini-Mix model, geared especially for short loads and space-constrained sites or conditions.
“This is our foray into zero-emission concrete mixer trucks as we strive to reduce our carbon footprint and provide highly efficient delivery trucks to support the growing needs of our expanding customer base. Not only does our electric mini mixer produce zero carbon emissions, but it also operates at a very low noise level,” says Terex Advance General Manager Dave Grabner. “As configured on a 33,000-lb. GVWR International eMV, the barrel carrying capacity is 3 cubic yards. Coupled with the Viatec SmartPTO, this provides an approximate 135-mile range and up to two pour cycles between charges.”
“Navistar is committed to a zero-emission future, and we proudly support Terex in their leadership of electric vehicle adoption,” adds Navistar Vice President, Medium Duty Truck Business Debbie Shust. “This partnership demonstrates the success of collaboration and technology integration in the vocational space to provide an electric concrete mixer that offers customers the performance they need while they work to meet their own sustainability goals.”
