ZF introduces the Ecomix II type CML 10 low-speed concrete mixer with up to 10-m³ (33-ft³) drum capacity and an output up to 62,000 N•m (45,730 lb•ft). Some 20% lighter and 50% shorter than previous models, Ecomix's bearing concept increases the output strength on off-highway applications. Elastomer units from ZF Boge Elastmetall increase the axial run-out at drum bottom and improve misalignment of the drum. An updated bearing concept prevents the installation angle from being dependent on drum size and filling and maintains the angle up to 20°. Acoustic and mechanic decoupling reduce noise during operation and improve driving comfort. Serviceability and accessibility also are enhanced from an adapted, weight-optimized, low-speed hydro motor and separated transmission and hydrostatic oils. A compact, lightweight design improves assembly.
