Mixer upgrades: Con-Tech Manufacturing.

Con-Tech Manufacturing demonstrated at World of Concrete 2016 new harness wiring, along with High Performance Drum modifications to improve mixing performance, ease truck operation, and reduce maintenance requirements. It has replaced prior drum models' small fins with extra large versions bearing AR steel lip doublers, plus staggered, 2-in. diameter XL mixing holes. A new design for the "ball buster" consists of four, single-piece AR steel brackets mounted just aft of the drum head. Con-Tech has also added large grommets for easy front and rear pedestal access. Wiring is simplified through new Armor-Tech four-piece rubber cable harnesses with front and rear protected junction boxes.

Inside the Con-Tech Extreme Duty and BridgeKing models, drivers will find a new, fully adjustable Ergo-Control Cab Box. It affords them infinite control panel position and location options; minimizes the mobility required to look for switch labels and functions; and, sports back lit switches to indicate functions that are on, running or in hazard situation. It also has a fully adjustable switch box that can be used with electronic or cable pump controls. The back of the switch panel is easily accessible. The controls also feature a constant drum speed option that can be programmed to each producer's specifications. A wireless option can also be added to the new box design.--Con-Tech Manufacturing, 507/374-2239; www.ctmmixers.com
