Products Snapshot: Dust-Collecting Masonry Chop Saw and Redesigned Concrete Boom Pump

Text size: A A
Putzmeister America
The 42Z Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pump features several improvements over earlier models: an expanded deck and a gross weight under 30 tons, among others. The 42Z pump's pipe system only has 45 and 90 elbows, instead of the 30, 60 and 90 elbows on earlier models. This simplified design reduces wear on the pipe and the need for maintenance. Subframe bolt connections on the pedestal compensate for torsion from the pump's force. Putzmeister America; 800-884-7210; www.putzmeisteramerica.com
