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.”
