Putzmeister Introduces Unique Pin-Connect Tower

New placing boom tower features the convenience of a four-pin connection

STURTEVANT, Wis. (January 10, 2006) - At this year's Mega Demo during The World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Putzmeister America will demonstrate its new pin-connect tower for placing boom systems. The tower design simplifies both erecting and raising the tower on construction sites.

Conveniently connected and secured with four heavy-duty pins, the new tower sections come together quickly and easily to improve job site efficiency. The new system does not require bolts during tower setup, eliminating the need for special tools and the time-consuming chore of torquing bolts.

In addition, all tower sides have a smooth surface without protrusions so the tower can easily slide through floor openings, without interruption, while being raised. While the ladder is still strategically located inside the square tower, it is positioned on the vertical sides in an alternating pattern for improved access to delivery pipe and more space when climbing.

The tower is available in varying lengths and can be utilized with all Putzmeister placing boom models up to 40 meters. In addition, customers can request several application-specific tower accessories such as foundation anchors, floor support plates, base plates, corner wedges, a universal tie frame and a ballasted base for increased site efficiency.
