Putzmeister Introduces 47Z-Meter Concrete Pump with Z-Boom

STURTEVANT, Wis. (March 29, 2004) – Putzmeister America unveiled a new truck-mounted concrete boom pump – the 47Z-Meter at this year’s World of Concrete trade show. The new model features a versatile Z-boom configuration and the smallest overall outrigger footprint in its class.

The five-arm Z-boom allows the machine to maneuver in, over and around obstacles and efficiently place concrete in difficult-to-reach places. In addition, the Z-boom’s well-designed layout of components incorporates fewer bends for easier service, a smoother concrete flow through the line, a longer service life and more parts commonality.

With a highly compact design, the 47Z features an outrigger spread of only 26 feet, 3 inches (8m) in the front and 28 feet, 6 inches (8.7m) in the rear. This compact footprint is achieved with “X” brace outriggers. Hydraulically operated, the front outriggers diagonally telescope outward, while the rear ones swing-out for easy setup and operation on congested job sites.

All sections of the 47Z-Meter boom pump are equipped with 5-inch twin wall delivery line for better wear resistance and peak performance.

In addition, the 47Z delivers both high pressure performance, up to 1233-psi (85 bar) and high volume. Customers have the choice of a .16H or .20H pump cell, attaining 210 yd3/hr (160m3/hr) and 260 yd3/hr (200m3/hr) outputs, respectively.

Similar to all Putzmeister boom pump models, the 47Z features exclusive free flow hydraulics for smooth controllable pumping, Econo-GearTM for fuel savings, and the “Big Mouth” S-Valve with new RS 907A hopper for pumping extremely harsh mixes and easier clean out.

The new model will be available for spring 2004 delivery. For more details, contact Putzmeister America at 800-884-7210 or 262-886-3200.
