All-terrain concrete pump

PUTZMEISTERs all-terrain crawler boom concrete pump is now available in the UK.

The Crabo concrete pump is mounted on a tracklaying chassis, making it able to cope with the toughest of countryside.

Powered by a Caterpillar engine, the pump comes with a three-section 16 m boom. The Crabos core pump has a 1,400 mm piston stroke. Its transfer tube comes with cylinder options of either 200 mm or 230 mm. Its maximum delivery rate is 66 cu m/h for the 200 mm model, and 87 cu m/h on the 230 mm option.

The Crabo has been selling in mainland Europe for the past 18 months. A Putzmeister spokes-man said the company had waited for the pump to prove itself before launching in the UK.
