World of Concrete 2016

It’s no secret that I prefer rear discharge mixers to the more modern front discharge trucks. They are the trucks I grew up with and as you age you become less tolerant of change. That’s why I was happy to see so many “classic” setups from the World of Concrete super show in Las Vegas. Ryan walked nearly 15 miles everyday through various show halls, hotels and outdoor displays to bring us this mega gallery of rigs from every truck and mixer builder.

Western Star 4700 Mixer Truck

Quite a few Canadian axle setups to be found in the mix as well.

Mack Mixer Truck

So many trucks! WOC doesn’t pull any punches when it brings out the new rigs. We’ll see more from this show later in the week!

    What is the lack of color in most of the new examples of state of the art transit mixers? Is this the new standard? I hope not. Mixers are supposed to be full of color. Spinning striped or patterned drums are the the way that I grew up on. Many companies with large vocational fleets are standardising White as their main color. Just because of resale.

      I hear you. Same thing happened in the OTR market long ago. Everything is white or at the very best a solid color like red or black. Times don’t always change for the best!
