Putzmeister - Concrete Equipment

Concrete equipment is designed to do a lot of very intricate and precise tasks. Like all superior equipment, Putzmeister’s intelligent and sophisticated pumps and equipment need maintenance when lying idle. The countrywide lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19 has resulted in a closure of all but essential activities. We urge customers with access to their machines to follow our Lockdown Maintenance Checklist. Our Service Engineers have put together tips that customers or their equipment operators can do themselves to keep the equipment in good working condition. Following these tips will help retain value of the equipment through the lockdown and help in smooth operations when activity resumes.

While many of the tips shared here are common across concrete equipment, the checklist has been made with Putzmeister concrete equipment in mind. We advise others to check with their individual OEMs for the most suitable tips.

Stationary Concrete Pumps
  • Clean/remove concrete from all machine components.
  • Drain water out of water box/ tank and keep it empty.
  • It is important to regularly grease all greasing points. You should also apply grease on all exposed hydraulic cylinder rods.
  • Drain water from the hydraulic tank once every 5 days.
  • Run the engine for 15 minutes every 5 days. This will keep the battery from draining.
  • Check all operations and functions.
