Maxon Industries recently manufactured their 1,000th Agitor at their factory in Milwaukee, WI delivering it to the paving contractor, Zignego Construction. The unique Maxon Agitor is the only unit that incorporates an open top concrete haul body for rapid loading from a central mix batch plant; an Agitator shaft to ensure quality concrete with every load transported; and various chute options to meter concrete to buckets and pump hoppers or large paving chutes to place direct to grade as fast as a dump truck.

“The continued success of the Agitor speaks for the quality work that our team provides with every unit produced,” commented Bill Maxon, President, Maxon Industries, Inc. “The Agitor has had a proud history delivering concrete to projects across the globe and we are excited to have our 1,000th machine go to a contractor with an excellent history and reputation like Zignego,” noted Maxon. “It has been an exciting and busy past 12 months. We have supplied units to a number of high profile projects worldwide including 36 truck-mounted Agitors to Panama for construction of the third lane for the Panama Canal.”

Recent Agitor product improvements introduced by Maxon include new hydraulic valves, side mounted operator’s ladders for easier inspection/washdown, and adjustable agitator shafts that can handle any concrete mix design, from zero slump/large aggregate concrete to SCC and grout mixes.

As Maxon approaches its 40th year in manufacturing, innovative ideas in concrete mixing, transportation and placing equipment remain at the forefront of everything they do.
