McNeilus launches training program for concrete mixer truck service technicians
Industry leader announces program to train service technicians
McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has announced the creation of a new program to train service technicians in the maintenance of concrete mixer trucks.
"A concrete mixer truck mechanic is a valuable asset to a customer's organization and to the industry as well," said Jim McReynolds, vice president and general manager, customer support solutions, McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Inc. "That's why we want to do our part to increase both the quantity and quality of the mechanics working in the industry."
The full-day program training technicians on the company's Bridgemaster and Standard concrete mixers, includes in-depth sessions on topics like safety, electrical components, hydraulics, drum, chute and Bridgemaster control systems, pneumatics and their award-winning FLEX Controls system. The courses will include both classroom sessions as well as hands-on experience with the trucks.
Dates and locations will be scheduled based on interest and demand. Classes will be held each month at different locations around the U.S., beginning December 13 in Salisbury, NC. The company will accept training candidates from any customer who has service technicians working on McNeilus equipment. Training on the Oshkosh S-Series Front Discharge mixer, backed by McNeilus, will continue to be held through the Oshkosh Product Training Center.
"These training courses are designed to teach technicians what they need to know to keep their fleets in top condition, increasing efficiency and improving their company's bottom line," McReynolds added.
