New, Lightweight 56Z Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump

Putzmeister America, Inc. has announced it will introduce its new, lightweight 56Z-Meter Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump during 2012. The new pump’s innovative, compact design will offer a reduced unit weight and a smaller footprint, while accommodating a long reaching boom.

“The product advances found in the new 42Z-Meter model have now been extended into the 50-meter class,” says Jim Bury, director of engineering for Putzmeister America. “From the small, but revolutionary RFID hopper grate switch to the all new weight-to-strength optimized boom and structural components, we have brought together world-class design and user value into a D.O.T.-friendly package.”

The 56Z-Meter’s design reduces unit weight to less than 100,000 pounds (45,000kg), delivering a 50-meter class boom to areas previously unreachable due to weight restrictions. The standard One Sided Support (OSS) outrigger system will allow for a smaller footprint, with 19’ 4” (5.90m) front and 25’ 11” (7.90m) rear spreads. Despite its smaller size, the pump will offer a long-reaching boom—181’ 1” (55.20m) vertical, 163’ 9” (49.90m) horizontal. The 56ZMeter will feature common boom elbows, interchangeability of many parts, decreased maintenance costs, and even greater reliability.
