Putzmeister America, Inc. Announces New 50-Meter Class Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump
Putzmeister America, Inc., (Putzmeister) has announced the new 51Z-5 Meter Concrete Boom Pump to enhance the Putzmeister 50-Meter class portfolio.
STURTEVANT, WIS. (Jan. 10, 2019) – Putzmeister America, Inc., (Putzmeister) has announced the new 51Z-5 Meter Concrete Boom Pump to enhance the Putzmeister 50-Meter class portfolio. The new 51Z-5 features a reduced outrigger footprint and the latest Ergonic® 2.0 technology.
“The 51Z-5 meter pump is the perfect in-between size,” said Bill Dwyer, VP Sales & Marketing at Putzmeister. “We listened to the feedback of our customer base and created a pump to meet a variety of job site demands. The new pump delivers a reach long enough for multistory buildings, with a smaller outrigger footprint to save space.”
The reduction of the outrigger support width is further reduced with the One-Sided Support System (OSS) on the all-new 51Z-5 Meter. With the OSS in use, the 51Z-5 Meter outrigger width reduces by roughly 9 ft. (2.74m). The 51Z-5 features an OSS reduction of approximately 10 ft. (3m), saving an extra foot and allows the operator to maximize horizontal reach from the front edge of the truck to the fully supported side.
Another advantage of the latest Putzmeister pump is fuel savings. The 51Z-5 comes standard with Putzmeister’s latest Ergonic® 2.0 technology. The Ergonic Pump System (EPS) and Ergonic Output Control (EOC) work together to optimize the pumping process and regulate the optimum engine speed, ensuring the pump operates smoothly with fuel efficiency and low wear and tear on the equipment. The EOC can reduce fuel consumption by up to 25 percent. The 51Z-5 also comes standard with the Ergonic 2.0 remote control.
“The fuel savings and narrow support width of OSS make the 51Z-5 a game changer in the 50-meter class,” said Dwyer.
The new 51Z-5 meter boom pump will be featured at World of Concrete 2019 and is immediately available for purchase. For more information about the 50-meter class, visit Putzmeister.com or contact your local sales representative.
