Schwing's New S 52 SX Concrete Pump with RZ5 Boom


Schwing has announced the introduction of a new concrete pump with placing boom. The S 52 SX with RZ5 Boom combines the best features of two boom types, Overhead Roll and Fold and Z tip section, in a unique five-section boom. The new machine promises to set new standards for placing concrete at distances of more than 51,8 m vertically and 48,7 m horizontally.

The RZ5 boom benefits from a full 180° working range of the main section allowing operators to position the first section away from the pour and maneuver the remaining sections deep into buildings. This process is aided by a Z tip section that offers 270° of articulation where it can be the most advantageous.

The new machine also incorporates Schwing's exclusive Super X Outriggers® that set-up fast and maximize horizontal reach. The curved front outriggers telescope out and around obstacles while providing a compact and stable pumping platform.

The Standard Schwing Vector Control system is the only system that can match the versatility of the RZ5 boom. Twin joysticks provide proportional boom control for pin-point accuracy. In addition, Vector is also the only system providing two-way communication between the pump and operator. An LED display on the remote box informs the operator of operational conditions, including: hydraulic pressure; PTO rpm; strokes per minute; hydraulic oil temperature and hopper grate status. Control functions from the remote box include: engine rpm and start/stop; pump delivery rate; pump forward/reverse and boom speed. The Vector System also records critical data that tracks yards per hour to more accurately schedule maintenance and extend machine life.

The Generation 3 concrete pump is the low-maintenance, long-lasting high performance unit that provides long slow-stroking action. This is the highest output concrete pump operating with the fewest strokes. The all-hydraulic design utilizes the Schwing Big Rock Valve, promoting maximum filling efficiency of the material cylinders even with harsh mixes. Schwing's open circuit design provides continuous hydraulic oil flow for better filtration and cooling.
