This model is an Imer truck mixer mounted on a MAN 8x4 chassis. 

Imer is an Italian manufacturer of concrete equipment.


The model comes in an NZG branded box with a window. 

There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

There is no information about the real machine.


This is a heavy model with a relatively low plastic content.  Underneath, the chassis is fully detailed with only the steering linkages being modelled for functionality rather than detail.  The tyres have a decent tread pattern and are different on the steered and driven wheels.

The cab has horns, beacon lights and aerials on the roof, and a see-through roof light.  The MAN name and logo is rendered in chrome finish at the front.  There is a number plate front and rear. 

Inside the cab, the detail is reasonably good.

Behind the cab the exhaust pipe looks good.  The wheel arches are metal throughout and the light bar at the rear has nice plastic lenses.

The mixer drum is metal.  The water tank has a lifting eye and a tiny water gauge is a fine detail. At the rear the access ladder and platform rails are a little thick but a nice touch is the perforated safety grid.  The loading funnel and discharge chute are metal.


The truck rolls well enough and the front two axles have linked steering which can be posed to a very good angle.

The mixer drum rotates very smoothly.

At the rear the access ladder folds down. 

The discharge chute has full side-to-side movement.


As a heavy model it has a quality feel and the use of plastic is limited. 

The paint and graphics are to a very good standard.


It is reasonable value.


It is good to see a model of equipment made by Imer.  There are some really good details, and it would look very good in company colour schemes.


This model first appeared in Q1 2022 and was an update to model #965 which appeared in 2018.
