Liebherr hands over its ninety thousandth truck mixer to one of its customers. The company Transbeton from Laupheim (Germany) collected the semitrailer HTM 1004 ZA.

This collection run was a particularly special one for Reinhold Brehm, Managing Director of the company Transbeton from Laupheim, in the south of Germany. This was because one of the machines his company had purchased was number 90,000 of all Liebherr truck mixers manufactured worldwide. Transbeton has been a loyal Liebherr customer for almost 50 years. Both the fleet of around twenty truck mixers and the concrete mixing plants at various locations were manufactured by Liebherr.

The anniversary machine is a semitrailer with a nominal capacity of 10m³. “I always have two semitrailers in my fleet”, says Reinhold Brehm, “because it increases our transportation capacity for large concrete plants. If the workload is not quite as heavy, we use tractor units to transport gravel or cement. This flexibility makes my fleet more profitable.”

Liebherr semitrailers are of great benefit to customers due to their reliability and long service life. The daily workload is simplified by the fact they are easy to clean. The torsion-resistant frame as well as ABS and pneumatic shock absorption as standard ensure that they are safe to drive.
