Putzmeister Will Exhibit 58-Meter

Putzmeister Will Exhibit 58-Meter

Putzmeister has developed the largest concrete boom pump in North America and showcased it at the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2002 exhibition in Las Vegas. Designated the 58-Meter, this new Putzmeister model offers both the longest reach and highest output available in the United States and Canada.

With its four-section boom, the Putzmeister 58-Meter provides a 188-foot 1-inch vertical (57.3m) and a 174-foot (53m) horizontal reach — essential for long distance or difficult-to-reach jobs. Tom Teubel, VP-Sales and Marketing said, "Our 58-Meter is especially popular among companies that want the extra reach because they don't want to waste time and labor in dragging additional hoses over post-tension cables or rebar and risk messing them up."

Using its high-pressure .20H pump cell, up to 260-cubic-yard (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.

Features free-flow hydraulics
The model features exclusive free-flow hydraulics for smooth, controllable pumping, and it offers full proportional control of all boom sections so that a feather touch operation can be achieved from start to finish. 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.

When fully deployed, the outrigger footprint is 32 feet 9 inches (9.98m) in the front and only 34 feet 9 inches (10.6m) in the rear — by far the most compact rear outrigger spread in its class. Plus, by swinging the rear outriggers out and extending them down without additional shoes to clamp on, setup is quick and easy.

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 390-gallon (1476L) water tank capacity and 406-psi (28bar) hydraulically driven water pump.

Easy to transport
With the most advanced technology of incorporating lightweight yet high strength materials on the market, the 58-Meter provides easy transit. For better maneuverability and greater traction, the unit is mounted on a conventional straight 6-axle Mack MR688S truck. In its standard 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.
