Redesigned Schwing SPTO Series Line Pumps
Schwing brings new efficiency, economy and long-term durability to their redesigned SPTO 1000 and SPTO 1250 truck-mounted line pumps. The concrete pump is driven from the truck engine and offers many of the features of Schwing’s proven larger pumps. Standard features include the Rock Valve, twin-cylinder all hydraulic pumping with Symmetrical Switching and SCC Controls. New operator friendly features include more deck area, a larger water tank and remote waterbox filling. The SPTO models can be driven without a CDL license.
“SPTO concrete pumps are built with the emphasis on long-term reliable use, which is why we offer them on heavy-duty truck chassis not pick-up truck models,” explains Tom O’Malley, Schwing Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing. The concrete pump, with output to 95 cubic yards per hour, is powered by the truck engine. Chassis options from Kenworth, Mack and International are available with advantages in turning radius, fuel capacity, GAWR and warranty.
The SPTO 1000 and SPTO 1250 offer capabilities to benefit contractors and pumpers on the majority of jobs. Symmetrical Shifting aids in pumping the harshest mixes by providing faster switching of the Rock Valve with five-inch outlet. This unique feature allows the concrete pump to provide smoother, quieter operation even at pressures to 1100 psi encountered on high-rise structures. The long stroke of the pumping cylinders allows the unit to operate at a slow 35 strokes per minute for less wear. And a large capacity 11 cubic foot hopper, with fold down cover, aids in volume pumping.
Schwing Control Technology (SCT) complements SPTO models by providing safe and easy operation of the concrete pump with valuable feedback of critical components. Information is available in-cab and on the pump. An integrated back up camera is included. Both radio remote and cable remotes are standard equipment.
“These SPTOs are heavy-duty concrete pumps on heavy-duty chassis with the carrying capacity for system and tools we know our customers will need to finish a job successfully,” O’Malley adds.
