Schwing has announced a new four-section 28-meter boom pump. The S 28 X (Circle 907) replaces the three-section KVM 28. Where the original KVM 28 was a three-section Roll and Fold boom design, the new S 28 X incorporates a four-section Roll and Fold Z Boom combination. The last three sections are equal length and offer 720° of combined articulation for maximum versatility. A low 19 ft, 2 in. unfolding height adds even more applications to the S 28 X’s repertoire.
The new 28-meter boom employs the Vector System with digital proportional joystick controls. The Vector offers two-way communications between the pump and the operator. An LED display on the remote box informs the operator of hydraulic pressure, strokes per minute, hydraulic oil temperature and more. The Vector also stores hourly operating data for the concrete pump, PTO, boom, slewing gear and outriggers.
