Putzmeister Introduces New TK 25 Hydraulic Trailer Pump
Putzmeister Introduces New TK 25 Hydraulic Trailer PumpTo fill a special market niche, Putzmeister introduced a new 24-cubic-yard-an-hour “hydraulic” trailer pump called the Thom-Katt® TK 25. It was officially unveiled at this year’s World of Concrete.
The new unit is ideal for pumping concrete for commercial on-grade slabs and upper decks. It also conveniently handles block fill, stem walls, patios and other residential projects.
The TK 25 attains up to a maximum 24-cubic-yard output, an 1000-psi concrete pressure, and is powered by a dependable 46 horsepower Deutz diesel engine. Because it is hydraulic driven, like the company’s larger Thom-Katt models, the TK 25 has the ability to pump in both forward and reverse.
Other significant features include a proven reliable S-valve to pump today’s harsher mixes more efficiently. The S-valve can be adjusted at the outlet end of the hopper, which is unique to this model within the Thom-Katt product range. A hinged hopper section provides easier access for the replacement of wear parts. In addition, the unit’s lightweight design allows for towing by a standard pickup truck for convenient on- and off-road travel.
Dave Rudin, Product Line Manager - Thom-Katts® and Mortar Machines, said, “The TK 25 is an ideal pump to handle higher volume grout work because its ‘hydraulic valve’ allows the pump to go in reverse. You can’t do that with a ‘ball valve’ pump since it utilizes balls and seats.”
