52 • December 2018 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc. has launched a program to train service techni- cians in concrete mixer maintenance. "A mixer truck mechanic is a valuable asset to a custom- er's organization and the industry as well," says Vice President and General Manager, Customer Support Solutions Jim McReynolds. "That's why we want to do our part to increase both the quantity and quality of the mechanics work- ing in the industry. These training courses are designed to teach technicians what they need to know to keep their fleets in top condition, increasing efficiency and improving their com- pany's bottom line." With classroom and hands-on sessions sur- rounding the manufacturer's Bridgemaster and standard mixer models, the full-day program covers safety, electrical components, hydrau- lics, drum, pneumatics, chute and control systems, plus the new FLEX Controls package. Training dates and locations will be scheduled based on interest and demand. Classes will be held each month at different locations around the U.S., beginning in Salisbury, N.C. The com- pany will accept training candidates from any customer who has service technicians work- ing on McNeilus equipment. Oshkosh S-Series Front Discharge mixer offerings, backed by McNeilus, will continue through the Oshkosh Product Training Center. — McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing Inc., Dodge Center, Minn., 507/374-6321; Mixer truck technician training program debuts In a follow up to prior orders, Georgia's Reames Concrete Co. enlisted home state batch plant manufacturer Merts to deliver a 125-yd./hour EZ model for a new site in Americus. The plant has a four-compartment, 175-ton aggregate bin; 970-bbl. silo, split with a single cement plus dual supplementary binder compartments; weighed water system; and, 540-ton/hour radial stacker. It suits small to medium sized markets, where its quick batching capability can reduce the number of trucks required at a plant. The EZ can be erected in one or two days and, with pre-wire option, produce concrete within a week of site arrival. — Merts LLC, Leesburg, Ga., 229/435-3315; World of Concrete Booths N1063, 1544 MERTS EQUIPS REAMES CONCRETE WITH EZ
