Putzmeister Unveils 40-Meter Class Lightweight Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump
Putzmeister Unveils 40-Meter Class Lightweight Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom PumpThree-axle 40 Z-Meter offers more reach for less money
STURTEVANT, Wis. (January 15, 2005) – At this year’s World of Concrete, Putzmeister America unveils a Multi-Z concrete boom pump mounted on three axles that provides an exceptional net reach of 107 ft 7 in – the new 40Z-Meter.
Weighing in under 56,000 lbs (24,400 kg), Putzmeister’s new BSF 40Z.16H model offers compact and ultra-lightweight design for the 40-Meter reach class. This is a significant achievement because it helps contractors avoid the added expense of special road permits required in most states when utilizing larger four-axle vehicles.
The new Putzmeister 40Z also features the industry renowned Multi-Z boom configuration to maneuver in, over and around obstacles and efficiently place concrete in difficult-to-reach places. The Z-boom’s well-designed component configuration incorporates fewer bends for easier service, a smoother concrete flow through the line, a longer service life, and greater parts commonality.
With a highly compact design, the 40Z features an outrigger spread of only 20 ft 11 in (6.38m) in the front and 23 ft 1 in (7.04m) at the rear. The small 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.
In addition, the 40Z delivers both high-pressure performance, up to 1,233 psi (85 bar) and high volume, up to a 210 yd3/hr (160m3/hr) output with its standard .16H pump cell. The unit is equipped with 4.4-in twin wall pipeline to help maintain its light weight.
Like all Putzmeister boom pump models, the 40Z features exclusive free flow hydraulics for smooth controllable pumping, Econo-GearTM for fuel savings, and the “Big Mouth” S-Valve with E-Z Clean Out RS 907A hopper for pumping extremely harsh mixes.
The new model will be available for spring 2005 delivery. For more details, contact Putzmeister America at(800) 884-7210,(262) 886-3200 or visit the company’s web site at www.putzmeister.com to download product literature.
