Putzmeister America, Inc. Introduces New BSF 58Z-Meter Concrete Boom Pump

Maneuverable design goes the distance

STURTEVANT, WI (February 1, 2008) – Putzmeister America, Inc. announces the latest addition to its line of concrete boom pumps, the BSF 58Z-Meter.

Taking flexibility in the 50-meter class to an even higher level, the new 58Z-meter is a five-section Z-Fold boom design offering 189' (57.60m) of vertical reach. “The Roll and Z style of this boom combined with easy setup and a host of standard features make this model a great enhancement to any boom pump fleet,” says Putzmeister America vice president of sales and marketing Bill Dwyer.

With its 180° working range in One-Sided Support (OSS) mode, the 58Z has the ability to make the most efficient use of its vertical and horizontal reach in congested areas. The Z-Fold design increases placement options and convenience with the ability to deploy in both ‘Z’ positions and the popular ‘A-Frame’ configuration, depending on application requirements. From bridge decks and caissons to foundations and tilt-up, the 58Z-Meter does it all.

Standard on all models 52-meters and up, including the 58Z-Meter, Putzmeister’s Ergonic® technology allows the operator to set parameters that control the boom, 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 computer fault codes in the field, and Ergonic Boom Control (EBC) with OneTouch™ are other significant technologies.

In addition to Putzmeister’s exclusive free flow hydraulics for smooth, controllable pumping, the 58Z-Meter includes twin-pipe delivery line on all boom sections; fully proportional cable and radio remote controls for precise boom positioning; automatic lubrication of the unit’s boom, pedestal and hopper for simplified maintenance; and the Big Mouth S-Valve for pumping extremely harsh mixes. Like all Putzmeister boom pumps, the 58Z-meter features a modular bolt-on flatpack and hydraulic system that improves the efficiency of maintenance and servicing.

Deliveries for the 58Z-Meter begin in early 2008. For more details, contact Putzmeister America toll-free at (800) 884-7210, (262) 886-3200 or visit the company’s web site at www.putzmeister.com to view specifications and download product literature.
