Putzmeister America Announces the VS 100HP

Putzmeister America announces the latest and largest model addition to its Thom-Katt range of vehicle-mounted concrete line pumps — the VS 100HP.

Capable of attaining up to a maximum 1170-psi (81bar) pressure, the VS 100HP delivers the highest concrete outputs in the VS lineup - up to 100 cubic yards an hour (77m3/hr). Tailored after the popular Thom-Katt trailer-mounted pump, this recently designed truck-mounted version offers many similarities.

These include twin-shifting cylinders to prevent line surge, a rugged S-valve with gradual reduction, and hard-chromed concrete cylinders for longer-lasting wear. A large capacity, harsh-mix Super hopper with hydraulic mixer enables the 100HP to gulp down tough concrete mixes. Meanwhile large, long stroke 7" x 60" (180x1524mm) concrete cylinders require less cycling to pump large amounts of concrete. This results in a smooth output, long service life and low wear parts costs.

Differing from the trailer version, the vehicle-mounted VS model is mounted on a Mack MS 300P and PTO-driven from the truck engine through a G61 distribution gearbox. It is highly mobile and very compact for maneuvering on road or on-site. Other chassis are available depending on the user's requirements.

Additionally, the VS 100HP model offers a large deck and side panels for ample carrying capacity, and an optional angled overhead pipe rack for added storage of pipe and accessories. A high-pressure water system with pump, tank and hose combined with a large capacity 175-gallon (660L) water tank enable fast and convenient clean out.
