Lockdown Checklist for Concrete Pumps


Tips to retain pump value and preserve the life of its parts

Most countries around the world are in a lockdown to do what is necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Construction activity is often at a standstill and your Putzmeister equipment is lying idle. Even an idle machine needs to be regularly maintained. This is very important to keep your machine in working condition and preserve the value of your investment.

Our team of Service Engineers developed a list of maintenance tips that you or your machine operator can easily undertake. Follow this checklist regularly, and your machine will be ready to resume work smoothly once activity resumes.

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. 

Truck Mounted Concrete Pump

  • Clean/remove concrete from all machine components.
  • Drain water out of water box/ tank and keep it empty.
  • Store remote and cable inside the cabinet, away from moisture.
  • Disengage the hand break of the truck chassis, use tyre/wheel stoppers instead.
  • It is important to regularly grease all greasing points. You should also apply grease on all exposed hydraulic cylinder rods including the 3rd arm boom cylinder rod.
  • 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.
