Putzmeister Develops New 58-Meter — The LARGEST Concrete Boom Pump in North America

Putzmeister has developed the largest concrete boom pump in North America and introduced it at the World of Concrete 2001. Designated the 58-Meter, this new Putzmeister model offers both the longest reach and highest output available in the United States and Canada.

The new Putzmeister 58-Meter is the largest boom pump in North America. With its four-section boom, it provides a 188-foot 1-inch (57.30m) vertical and 174-foot (53m) horizontal reach. Using its high-pressure .20H pump cell, the 58-Meter attains a volume of up to 260 cubic yards (200m3) an hour. This translates into 20 percent more output than any comparable pump on the market today.

With its four-section boom, the Putzmeister 58-Meter provides a 188-foot 1-inch (57.30 m) vertical and 174-foot (53m) horizontal reach — essential for long distance or difficult-to-reach jobs. Using its high-pressure .20H pump cell, up to 260 cubic yards (200m3) an hour volume is attained. This translates into 20 percent more output than any comparable pump on the market today. Coupled with its high 1233-psi (85 bar) pressure, large jobs can be handled quickly and efficiently with plenty of power in reserve.

Addressing an important concern among pumping contractors is that the large 58-Meter model is designed with a 5-inch twin wall delivery line on all boom sections. The 5-inch diameter throughout means less wear and smoother output.

The Putzmeister 58 also features exclusive free flow hydraulics for smooth, controllable pumping and proportional radio-remote controls for precise boom positioning. The company's low maintenance S-valve, large hard-chromed concrete cylinders and a long 83-inch (2100mm) stroke are expertly designed to gulp down the toughest concrete mixes.

Other characteristics that make this unit ideal for handling the bigger or tougher-to-access jobs include auto lubrication of the boom, pedestal and hopper along with two spacious loading decks for handling pipe and accessories.

Equipped for fast and simple cleaning, the Putzmeister 58 additionally features a specially designed E-Z clean-out hopper, large 423-gallon (1600L) water tank capacity and 406-psi (28bar) hydraulically driven water pump.

For better maneuverability, easier steering and more traction, the 58-Meter is mounted on a conventional straight 6-axle Mack MR688S truck. In its versatile tri-steer and tri-drive version, the truck provides a clean, efficient design for higher performance both on-road and off. Special chassis configurations are available to meet varying weight restrictions by state.
