Mack Trucks and McNeilus Companies will once again anchor the Concrete Industry Management Auction pool by dispatching a Granite-mounted, 11-yd. Bridgemaster mixer truck to the Las Vegas Convention Center for bidding on February 5, the second day of World of Concrete 2020.

The 2019 Granite GR64FR, running a 375-hp MP7 engine and 14-speed mDriveHD automated manual transmission, will be upfitted with an 11-yd. M80 Series drum plus FLEX controls and telematics package. “We continue to innovate and invest in technology to help push the industry forward,” says McNeilus Mixers and London Machinery General Manager Robert Monchamp. “The CIM program mirrors our commitment to support our ever-changing concrete industry and gives graduates the skills to excel.”
