Liebherr has releases 47m boom concrete pump
Liebherr has released a revised model of its 47 M5 XXT truck-mounted concrete pump for the European market, with in-house development and optimisation of the boom key improvements.
Last year the company acquired Waitzinger, a mid-sized German manufacturer of concrete pumps and other concrete equipment, in a bid to improve their range of concrete equipment products.
The new 47m, 5-section multi-fold distributor boom is extremely torsionally-resistant, ensuring that vibrations are reduced to an absolute minimum when unfolding the boom on the building site.
To ensure a balanced weight distribution, the concrete pipeline is configured close to the boom on both left and right hand sides. Minimal pressure loss over the entire length of the distributor boom is guaranteed by the pipe bend in the concrete pipeline featuring a radius of 275mm.
Features include the front and rear outriggers secured directly onto the boom pedestal of the distributor boom, ensuring that all forces bypass the boom completely and are channelled directly into the outriggers.
Four pivoting outriggers guarantee maximum flexibility and an extremely wide swing range of the distributor boom when supporting in a narrow configuration. This can prove decisive when working on building sites with restricted access.
The truck-mounted concrete pump 47 M5 XXT can either be equipped with the powerful 140HL high-pressure pump units featuring a maximum flow rate of 140 m³/h, or with the160HL featuring an output of 160 m³/h.
