Schwing S 52 SX concrete pumpAccording to Schwing, the new S 52 SX concrete pump with the company’s five-section RZ5 placing boom provides the best features of two boom types, Overhead Roll and Fold and Z-tip section. The new pump, says Schwing, has the ability to place concrete at distances of more than 170 feet vertically and 160 feet horizontally. The boom’s main section has a 180-degree working range, allowing the main section to be positioned away from the pour, while the remaining sections can be maneuvered deep into buildings. This process is assisted, says Schwing, by the boom’s Z-tip section, which provides 270 degrees of articulation.
