LAS VEGAS — Freightliner Trucks showcased its first concrete mixer with compressed natural gas technology at the 2013 World of Concrete in Las Vegas this week.

The 114SD CNG-fueled mixer is equipped with the Cummins Westport ISL G natural-gas engine, said Freightliner, which collaborated with McNeilus Cos. to build the truck. It has a heavy-duty frame, steel reinforced aluminum cab and flexible specs.

The unit is built on Freightliner’s severe-duty platform and is designed for a variety of applications. It is available in a wide range of vocational rear suspensions and frame options, the truck maker said.

“The combination of our severe-duty concrete mixer with natural-gas technology is the ideal blend of power, performance and efficiency,” said Robert Carrick, Freightliner Trucks’ manager of natural gas sales.

“We are providing the mixer market with another solution for customers seeking an economical way to reduce emissions and fuel costs,” Carrick said in a statement.

Freightliner is a unit of Daimler Trucks North America.
