Schwing S 43 SX Wins Top 100 Award from Construction Equipment Magazine
The Schwing S 43 SX truck-mounted concrete pump with RZ5 placing boom has been chosen by the editors of Construction Equipment Magazine as a Top 100 Products Award winner. Several hundred products introduced in the last year were considered. According to Construction Equipment Editorial Director, Rod Sutton, “These awards serve to emphasize innovations, highlighting manufacturers who are investing in research and development. Their investments pay off for equipment users in the form of greater productivity, efficiencies and safety. They also ensure a competitive marketplace.”
The S 43 SX, introduced at the 2012 World of Concrete offers a unique 5-section boom with 918-degrees of articulation. The RZ5 boom combines the best features of two boom types – Roll and Fold® and Z. By putting the 270-degree Z-fold at the tip section, operators have unprecedented boom maneuverability while placing concrete up to 138’8” vertically and 125-feet horizontally. An added benefit of the five section boom is a compact travel position. With a slewing range of 740 degrees, the 43SX adapts to many job site requirements, while full five-inch pipeline minimizes wear.
The machine also incorporates Schwing’s exclusive Super X Outriggers® that set-up fast and provide a compact and stable platform for pumping. These curved front outriggers telescope out and around obstacles without extending past the truck’s front bumper allowing placement of the pump as close to the pour area as possible. The S 43 SX only requires a 27’3” outrigger spread (same front and rear) for exceptional stability. With low unfolding height of 28’6” the new model also offers versatility in low overhead situations. A 160-gallon water tank provides self-sufficiency for clean-up at the yard or on the job site.
The Generation 3 concrete pump is the low-maintenance, 213 cubic yard per hour, long-lasting, high performance 2525-6 unit that provides long slow-stroking action. 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 fuel efficiency, superior filtration and better cooling. With the S 43 SX this pump kit can effectively handle infrastructure work, light commercial projects and bridges. In conjunction with the 5-inch pipeline, contractors can count on high volume or provide slow, smooth delivery with infinite volume control.
