Putzmeister America, Inc. will introduce its new 47Z-Meter Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump at the World of Concrete trade show in January 2017. The innovative pump will feature a new design for its pedestal and five-section boom for increased maneuverability, reduced overall weight, and a more user-friendly design. The updated model is also easier and more affordable to service and offers a variety of new options for custom enhancements. The five-section boom on the new 47Z-Meter provides increased flexibility and boom a reach of 134 feet 10 inches (41.1 m) horizontal, 151 feet 3 inches (46.1 m) vertical. As an added safety precaution, a new boom rest switch will help ensure the boom is fully stowed prior to driving.

  •  The new design also features a more robust pedestal with a sub-frame that has bolted connections, allowing for greater flexibility. By adjusting to torsion from the force of the pump, the life of the pump is increased, while the chance for downtime is reduced. Although the frame is more robust, the gross vehicle weight has been reduced to less than 70,000 pounds (31,752 kg), enabling easier road permitting throughout North America.
  • An improved pipe layout and an increased parts commonality between components of the pipe system. 
  • The 47Z incorporates multiple outrigger leg improvements, including four identical screwed-on support cylinders with maintenance-free leg bolts, and, which can be replaced in the field.
  • Its manual outrigger control valves have also been re-orientated for more ergonomic horizontal operation.
  • The 47Z also features the RS 909 Hopper, which offers a more robust, yet lightweight, design and promises an increased service life.
  • For added safety, the RS 909 hopper incorporates an RFID safety switch, preventing it from operating with the grate open and incorporating zero moving parts, while using the same advanced sensor technology shown to be effective and reliable in other Putzmeister systems.
  • The new model has a fold-down ergonomic work step, making it safer and easier to clean and maintain the hopper.
  • The pump’s Ergonic System, which comes standard, features wireless computer technology and a Ergonic Graphic Display with high resolution, color screen, contributing to the pump’s enhanced usability. This main control system allows the operator to set parameters that control the boom, pump, and a variety of other functions, ultimately increasing the convenience, performance and overall ease-of-use of the machine.
  • All work lights on the 47Z are LED for a longer life and lower cost of operation.
  • The LED lights illuminate the boom pump and its working area for enhanced safety and operator control.
