WorkStar Continental Mixer

Navistar announced a strategic partnership with Indiana Phoenix to produce a new, front-discharge Continental Mixer truck this fall.

According to Steve Guillaume, general manager of Continental Mixers, the new front discharge mixer will complement the company’s line-up of integrated rear discharge mixers while using the components and engineering expertise of Navistar’s International truck brand. The mixer model will be sold and serviced through Continental Mixer dealers who will also provide parts support and chassis service expertise. Production launch is expected this fall.

Continental Mixers also announced a new lightweight integrated mixer that will utilize a high-strength steel specifically formulated for concrete mixers. This new design will deliver a nearly 2,000-pound weight savings versus comparably spec’d steel mixers.

The new lightweight mixers include the optional ZF gearbox that integrates the hydraulic pump in the gearbox housing. In addition, multiple barrel sizes are available to meet customer requirements. The new lightweight mixer will be available on both International WorkStar and International PayStar chassis.

Additionally, Navistar introduced several new features for its International WorkStar line of severe service trucks, including a high visibility sloped hood option and a redesigned interior with ergonomic enhancements and improved driver features.
