New Putzmeister Model 36X-180 Added to EnterpriseTM Series of Concrete Boom Pumps



New Putzmeister Model 36X-180 Added to EnterpriseTM Series of Concrete Boom Pumps

Putzmeister America has added the 36X-180 to its recently introduced EnterpriseTM Series of concrete boom pumps. In September, production units will be available for delivery.

Now comprised of the 32X and 36X meter, the "affordably priced" Enterprise Series is positioned for small-to-medium-sized contractors who want the quality and reliability of Putzmeister equipment.

"This latest and larger 36X model is in response to the popularity of the smaller sized 32X Enterprise introduced last year," said Tom Teubel, vice president -sales and marketing. "Produced in the same factory to the same exacting standards, this budget-minded unit allowed concrete contractors and ready-mix companies to enter the concrete pumping business with a minimum investment. It also helped well-established pumping contractors who faced increased bidding competition. The 36X is just the next logical step for those who need more reach."

The 36X-180 has a vertical reach of 117 feet (36m) and a horizontal reach of 105 feet (32m). The four-section roll-and-fold boom is equipped with a 5-inch (125mm) delivery line on all sections. With up to 1,015-psi (70 bar) pressures, the unit is capable of pumping up to 180 cubic yards an hour (138m3/hr) on the rod side.

The Enterprise 36X is mounted on a 300-horsepower Mack MR 690S chassis with fully hydraulic outriggers. The two in front diagonally telescope and the two in back swing-out, providing a small 20-foot 8-inch (6.3) front and 23-foot (7m) rear outrigger footprint for easier setup in tight areas.

The pump features a free-flow hydraulic system for smooth, controllable pumping. It also has a fully adjustable volume control to allow slow pumping while still retaining full concrete pressure and boom speed.

Dave Adams, president and CEO of Putzmeister America said, "Like the 32X Enterprise, the 36X is designed with similar pumping technology found on our core boom pump lineup — minus just a few convenience features. It's perfect for customers wanting to own Putzmeister equipment that fits within their budget."
