Putzmeister America, Inc. Introduces Redesigned Bridge Maxx Concrete Transit Mixers

Putzmeister America, Inc. (Putzmeister) has announced the redesign of its Bridge Maxx Concrete Transit Mixers for reduced weight and increased ease of maintenance, parts commonality and increased durability. The new design not only aligns with the recent redesign of the Pro Series Concrete Transit Mixers, but also incorporates updates to the trailing axle, subframe and chute lock.


One of the most significant changes to the full line of mixers is the redesign of the pedestals; now the front and rear pedestals are even lighter in weight for increased load capacity and built with wider access holes for easier access to hydraulic lines for routine maintenance. Additionally, the load is now positioned lower in the truck frame to provide an industry best center of gravity for increased truck stability.  The mixers also features redesigned interchangeable wear parts, which allow for commonality of Putzmeister mixer parts among others in the industry.  


The Bridge Maxx’s trailing axle has been redesigned into one solid piece, making it both lighter and stronger. The redesign allowed us to lower the hydraulic pressures within the cylinder to decrease the wear and tear on all hydraulic components.  The subframes have been simplified and are now welded to the chassis frame, which makes them lighter than the previous model. Finally, Putzmeister engineers changed the chute pivot brake from hydraulic to pneumatic, which reduced the weight, simplified its design and allows for easier maintenance.


“Our engineering team has been working hard incorporating changes that the industry is clamoring for,” said Tom McKernan, Sales and Service Director for Putzmeister’s Concrete Transit Mixer Division. All of the changes in the redesign were a direct result of customer input. Our Maxx Mixers are now lighter, more durable, and utilize interchangeable replacement parts. This new line of mixers are also ‘mechanic friendly’ by being extra easy to maintain and service.”


The redesigned Putzmeister Bridge Maxx Concrete Transit Mixers are available for immediate order. For more information on the new design, contact McKernan at MckernanT@putzam.com or (713) 591-8247.
