Putzmeister Offers Detach Boom Kit for 'Truck to Tower' Conversions

New slewing head makes attach/detach process quick and easy

Putzmeister offers a detach boom kit that turns a truck-mounted concrete boom into a separate placing boom to double the productivity of truck-mounted booms.

The changeover kit and accessories are modular for quick and cost-effective equipment conversion whenever jobs call for separate booms. It adapts to most 28-, 32-, 36, and 38-meter Putzmeister truck-mounted boom pumps manufactured since 1985.

For contractors who transfer booms frequently, Putzmeister provides a new two-piece slewing head. This head features quick disconnect hydraulic fittings and easy alignment of the boom to the pedestal pin. It may be purchased with a customer's initial truck-mounted boom order or be retrofitted later. The slewing head adapts to most Putzmeister truck-mounted booms produced since 1985.

In addition, Putzmeister offers a complete range of separate placing booms with horizontal reaches from 24 to 32 meters (79 to 105 feet) which do not require counterweights. Larger-sized separate placing booms are available upon request.
