This week, Las Vegas is the home of the “World of Concrete” show so it seems fitting to show off a couple of Western Star mixers. This pair of 4700SF concrete mixmasters are fitted up with Kimble mixer barrels and liftable boosters to meet the bridge. The trailering arm is lifted once the truck has reached the job site .
A Detroit Diesel DD13 410hp @ 1450lb powers the Eaton 9LL Ultra Shift transmission to deliver the combined drive line torque to set of RT-46-160P twin screws. The front suspension consists of a 10,500 lb LEFT and 9,500 lb RIGHT to keep the chassis on an even keel when 10 cubic yards of concrete is be tossed around.
Thanks to Jeremiah Brodal from Tranwest Trucks in Denver, CO for sharing these Concrete Conquerors!
