To fill a special market niche, Putzmeister will introduce a new 24-cubic-yard-an-hour “hydraulic” trailer pump called the Thom-Katt® TK 25. It will be officially unveiled at this year’s World of Concrete.
The new unit is ideal for pumping concrete for commercial on-grade slabs and upper decks. It also conveniently handles block fill, stem walls, patios and other residential projects.
The TK 25 attains up to a maximum 24-cubic-yard output, a 1000-psi concrete pressure, and is powered by a dependable 46-horsepower Deutz diesel engine. Because it is hydraulic driven, like the company’s larger Thom-Katt models, the TK 25 has the ability to pump in both forward and reverse.
Other significant features include a proven reliable S-valve to pump today’s harsher mixes more efficiently. The S-valve can be adjusted at the outlet end of the hopper, which is unique to this model within the Thom-Katt product range. A hinged hopper section provides easier access for the replacement of wear parts. In addition, the unit’s lightweight design allows for towing by a standard pickup truck for convenient on-and off-road travel.
Dave Rudin, national sales manager for Thom-Katts, said, “The TK 25 is an ideal pump to handle higher-volume grout work because its ‘hydraulic valve’ allows the pump to go in reverse. You can’t do that with a ‘ball valve’ pump since it utilizes balls and seats.”
