Putzmeister America, Inc. has redesigned its Tommy Gun A3 Fireproofing Series of mortar machines for increased durability and ease of use, with an operator-friendly hydraulic lift and dump mixer, and a smaller, more rugged frame. Instead of the previous manual dump, the new Tommy Guns feature a redesigned 13-cubic-foot hydraulic lift and dump mixer with a load height that has been lowered more than 12 inches, reducing physical strain on the operator. Also, reducing strain on the operator, this places the bag breaker at hip level, rather than shoulder height. The convenient hydraulic controls are located at the rear of the unit, adjacent to the mixer. The new mortar machines now sit on the time-tested, rugged frame style originally developed for Putzmeister’s Thom-Katt® line. In addition to the engineering changes, the look of the Tommy Guns also has been updated. Previously blue and cream, the new standard colors are changing to yellow and gray to reflect the streamlining of the overall Putzmeister brand and each of its product lines.
