Schwing Announces New S 36 SX With RZ4 Placing Boom

Staff | September 28, 2010

Schwing announces the introduction of a new concrete pump with placing boom. The S 36 SX with RZ4 Boom combines the best features of two boom types, Roll and Fold™ and Z tip section, in a unique four-section boom. The new machine promises to set new standards for placing concrete at distances of more than 118-feet vertically and 104-feet horizontally.

The RZ4 boom benefits from the proven Roll and Fold design with the added advantage of a 270-degree Z fold tip section. An added advantage is that as the boom unfolds, it straightens itself, keeping the pipeline close to the boom, and allowing the use of shorter pipe arm holders for a narrower profile. The new model also incorporates Schwing’s patented 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.

Other standard features that improve pumping productivity, include: Super 3000 boom pipe with 12 percent thicker walls; carbide wear parts for the Rock Valve™ to extend maintenance intervals; a hopper vibrator; and night light kit.
