Putzmeister America, Inc. Introduces 70Z-Meter Truck-Mounted Boom PumpProduction begins on world’s largest boom pump
STURTEVANT, WI (February 1, 2008) – Further expanding the reach and capabilities of its broad line of truck-mounted concrete boom pumps, Putzmeister America, Inc. will launch its innovative 70Z-Meter truck-mounted concrete boom pump in mid 2008. Continuing in the Putzmeister tradition, and as seen at the ConExpo-CON/AGG 2005 release of the BSF 63Z-meter, the company will again take the industry by storm with the 70Z-Meter.
“We’re taking concrete placement to the extreme in 2008,” says Putzmeister America president, Dave Adams. “The new 70Z-Meter offers over 227 feet of vertical reach and nearly 213 feet of horizontal reach. It will not only be the largest truck-mounted boom pump in the market, it will feature technologies and support only available from Putzmeister.”
Standard on all models 52 meters and up, including the 70Z-Meter, Putzmeister’s exclusive Ergonic® technology allows the operator to set parameters that control the boom, the pump and many other operational functions. The Ergonic Pump Control System (EPS) is just one of several modules in the Ergonic system. Ergonic Tele Service (ETS), offering real-time remote diagnosis of the unit operation in the field, and Ergonic Boom Control (EBC) with OneTouch™ are other exclusive technological features.
The boom on the 70Z-Meter is a five-section Z-Fold design that allows maximum flexibility. Operators can deploy in both ‘Z’ positions and the popular ‘A-Frame’ configuration, depending on application requirements. Like all Putzmeister boom pumps from the compact 20Z on up, this new model has a modular bolt-on flatpack and free flow hydraulic system. It offers the same smooth and reliable pumping performance operators expect from all Putzmeister models.
“We already have several orders for the 70Z-Meter,” comments Bill Dwyer, vice president of sales and marketing for Putzmeister. “Our customers are anxious to use this exciting new piece of equipment on their job sites.”
The 70Z-Meter features an outside turning radius of only 59' (18m), allowing the chassis to be easily maneuvered on the road or on the job. In addition, the unit’s 180° working range in One-Sided Support (OSS) mode gives the 70Z-Meter the ability to make the most efficient use of its vertical and horizontal reach in congested areas.
