Revolution pump boom reaches new maneuverability, speed benchmarks

New boom technology holds the potential to take the concrete pumping business to new levels, Schwing America contends. The Revolution boom on the S 36 X truck-mounted concrete pump offers what company engineers note are unmatched maneuverability and speed, with continuous 360-degree articulation of the tip section and 330-degrees of third section articulation. Hydraulic motors replace the last two cylinders of the four-section boom to provide the additional coverage.

“The 36 Revolution is the most innovative boom technology to come along in decades,” notes Schwing Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing Tom O’Malley. “The possibilities are truly unlimited. This will be the most requested pump in any fleet.”

The 36 X with Revolution boom provides 115 ft., 6 in. of reach. Compact X-style outriggers set-up with a 20-ft., 5-in. outrigger spread. A 730-degree slewing range (365-degree left and right) augments fast set-up and affords versatility to overcome jobsite obstacles. The standard 2025H-5 pump kit offers 178 yd./hour output and 23 strokes/minute. The Vector Control system provides wireless proportional joystick maneuvering of the boom, a critical feature as operators use the Revolution’s expanded articulation to place concrete in areas they have never reached before.
