Putzmeister America 56z-Meter Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump
February 14, 2013

Putmeister America, Inc.’s lightweight 56Z-Meter Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump’s compact design offers a reduced unit weight and a smaller footprint, while accommodating a long-reaching boom. 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 18’ 8” (5.70m) front and 27’ 3” (8.30m) rear spreads. Despite its smaller size, the pump will offer a long-reaching boom—180’ 9” (55.09m) vertical, 163’ 9” (49.90m) horizontal. The 56Z-Meter features common boom elbows, interchangeability of many parts, decreased maintenance costs, and even greater reliability.
