Check this guy out. Both front outriggers are swung Out but not extended. 1min: 18sec...

Makes you wonder if he's even aware that they actually Extend on his 44 TurbO???

We've seen this before. There are several video's of this idiot shortrigging on the working side...

I am a pumper that does not do to difficult about shortrigging on the NONworking side as long as you know very well what you are doing but the working side??? Should ALWAYS be fully extended.. Even if you don't have to go far out.. Specialy with a big machine like a 44-5 TURBOWink. He is playing with people's lives. He can never be sure how far he can go with this setup..

This is what the translator says about the title:

PUTZMEISTER 44-5 turbo concretes 710cubic at 5.45 hours on the island of Corfu new port

Thats in greece so thats 710 m3   is about 930 Yards in 5:45 hours?? MY ASS!! With that setup where he can only have 1 mixer behind the pump... I don't believe shit of that story.

Unless that slab is 10 metres deep im thinking 710 metres is a little bit to much crete!

What he is doing has some logic behind it. If first and second arm on that boom is vertical the tipping forces are less than fully extended. Furthermore, arm 1 and 2 may act as ballast for the machine and its tipping point is pushed somewhere closer to the centre of machine.

Putzmeister tried this with Ergonic flexible support. But for some reason the idea was canned.

The short rigging is a obvious one, but I am suprised no one comented on the open water box, no cover at all.

I see this on a lot of units. Guys keep them covered up please.

I would have to ask if this vintage had a cover but everything now is suposed to, dont use this as a good example.

Hey come on Traveltec,

DON'T LIFT THE HOPPER GRID! is logical

DON'T PUT HANDS INTO AGITATOR! makes sense also!

BUT put lid on water box ..... OK should be ...... but why make such a big issue out of that?

Problem with PMs, JJs etc  is that they sometimes shortstroke/longstroke, becoz of stupid limit switches.

I love my Schwings with their hyd signals!

saw way too much to even start---my head hurts

Covering the water box is a safety issue and a response to lawsuits brought by people who knew better but still don't want to held accountable for their own actions. This is not a Putz or Schwing issue.

It shouldn't be such a big issue with the cover not being there since you are not even alowed on the truck when the pump is running. But ok.. I like a bit of extra safety. Good for dumbasses like these guys Wink

Jaybee, You are correct no one is supposed to be on the deck but there was a guy with a video camera walking around the deck while pumping, I have had Inspectors, Laborers, Pump company assistants, Contractors Union BA’s all at some time wind up on the deck even when they are not supposed to. The issue is Accidents happen, there are hazards on decks, Hoses Buckets and general pumping supplies, this on all brands of pump.

All modern Mfg’s of pumps think this is important enough to mount covers, regardless of how they stroke.

I only pointed it out to raise awareness to the potential for accidents to happen, young or old, Green Horn or Veteran, Putz or Schwing all live with Gravity.

Yes traveltech. I just ment to say that the guy on the deck was another point that was wrong..Wink Ofcourse there should be a cover on the waterbox. I also climb on the pump sometimes while pumping if I need to check something.. Surprised

The only way he could get that many yards done in that time is to stop the clock after each load. Besides that, which is not important. There are even more safety issues. There is no type of barricading set up around the pump on that busy street. Even a couple cones goes a long way. Plus add some caution tape around the pump. Also, with the pump shaking on every stroke, all the cribbing piled up can fall off the pump and into traffic and cause a major accident.

The bad part of the story is that there is enough room to do the short rigging the right way.

And talking about the waterbox. A little bit more water please.


Dipstick 10-06-2012 reply profile send pm notify

If you look at about 22 sec you can see he could have extended the right front even in this position. You would realy think he doesn't know they extend. Or he just doesn't bother.. Anyway he is just a super dumbass...


Dipstick 10-06-2012 reply profile send pm notify

The left front I mean ;-)

If you have ever seen a guy lose a foot, break a leg, due to no cover on water box , it would be a big deal

Have to agree on that one. Hydrolics is scary stuff. It will crush you. And everyone can mis his balanse, specialy climbing around on the deck of a running pump.
