Freightliner Trucks announced a new collaboration with McNeilus Companies in the development of a new bridge formula mixer chassis. The new truck is on display at the World of Concrete booth No. C6236.

Suited for the ready-mix market, Freightliner says its latest vocational product – a 114-inch BBC Severe Duty set-forward axle – features a lightweight, durable aluminum cab with a 29.5-inch bumper-to-front axle setting that maximizes concrete hauling capacity for bridge formula mixer configurations.

Equipped with the McNeilus 10.5-cubic-yard Bridgemaster Transit Mixer, the 114 Severe Duty mixer allows for 36-foot bridge with a 66,000-lb. GVW and a 9.5-to-9.7 cubic yard payload, dependent on concrete design density.
