McNeilus Delivers 40 CNG Bridgemaster Ready-Mix Trucks
On Tuesday, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing announced it had delivered 40 CNG Bridgemaster ready-mix trucks to Argos USA, a cement and ready-mix concrete company and subsidiary of Cementos Argos S.A. The vehicles, which feature McNeilus’ Next Generation (NGEN) CNG systems, are the first-ever CNG trucks placed into service by Argos. Twenty of the new vehicles are now on the job with Argos operations in Houston, and the remaining 20 will serve customers from facilities surrounding Dallas. Argos is completing final construction on private fueling stations in Dallas and Houston, each with 25 time-fill posts, for the trucks to fill overnight. The mixer vehicles are a five-axle configuration, outfitted with an 11-cubic yard McNeilus drum and Bridgemaster tag axle. Each of the trucks features a 60 DGE Type 4 fuel tank and an automatic transmission.
