The new transit mixer, combines design patented by the Japanese and the power take off (PTO) technology to bring the company's customers a machine that will prove to be one of the best of its kind. Instead the truck's main engine is used to power the mixer as well. This provides a number of advantages such as eco friendliness, low maintenance cost, low operational cost, etc.
Mounted on Bharat Benz chassis driven by 230 hp engines, the new transit mixer comes with KYB's new C shaped spiral design drums. The product will be marketed for the domestic as well as the export markets of Nepal, Bangladesh, Kenya and Sri Lanka.
The PTO power mixer which scores on fuel efficiency with slave engine being cut off, is suitable for transporting the concrete at higher gradients, making them applicable for dam or road construction at hilly terrain. The new range of transit mixers are being manufactured at KYB's expanded factory at Vadodara. The new expanded facility will be able to manufacture 50 transit mixers, 30 mobile batching plants, 25 paving machines and 20 stationary concrete pumps in a single shift.
