Warranty

Green Shield Warranty
– Priceless Peace of Mind

What is the measure of concrete pump quality?
The willingness of the manufacturer to back the product with the best warranty in the business. The Green Shield One Year Warranty is standard with all boom pump models. Schwing’s Green Shield Plus Warranty extends that coverage for two extra years for a nominal fee. It’s only fitting that the best pump comes with the best warranty, and that’s priceless peace of mind.

Because Your Business Can’t Wait
Authorized Schwing dealers plus factory parts and service professionals at our Call Center and $40 million in parts inventory – that’s Schwing’s Green Shield Parts and Service protection that no other pump manufacturer can match. Call 24 hours a day six days a week for the best technical service support. And with Schwing service techs located in strategic parts of the country, we’re close if you need hands-on service. This level of customer support has been the foundation of our customer loyalty for more than 35 years.

CAT Engine Warranty Registration

Schwing SP owners should register for their CAT engine warranty as soon as they get their pump to start their warranty protection. This warranty is included with your Schwing stationary pump and takes only a few minutes to complete.

Register your CAT engine.

FAQs

 

Q. What type and grade of oil is used in Schwing hydraulics?
A. There are several Brands of ISO VG46 hydraulic oil approved for use. Consult the service manual for other brands.

Q.What factors would you consider when offered a “cheaper” oil?
A. Is it cheaper through lower supply and transport costs? Is it less highly refined? Does it contain less effective additives? Are the additives compatible with those currently in use? See our oil recommendations.

Q. What is the soil pressure of the outrigger for my machine?
A. Since the 1980’s Schwing has installed a decal on each outrigger with the maximum outrigger load in lbs. The formula for the soil pressure is: Maximum outrigger load(lbs.) ÷ Area of soil contact(sq/in.)= Soil pressure(psi.)

Q. Can I check the Nitrogen charge in an accumulator system with out an accumulator Charge Kit?
A. Yes, If you watch the accumulator hydraulic gauge closely as you hit an e stop button to disengage the e top system the gauge will start to drop slowly, at a certain pressure the gauge will drop to zero at a faster pace. The pressure at which the gauge changes is the amount of Nitrogen charge in the accumulator bladder.

Q. What is the maximum amp draw of the electric motor on my SPB power pack or electric stationary pump?
A. All electric motors have the maximum current draw listed on the motor tag. If you do not have access to the tag you can use the following formula. All 460 volt 3 phase motors draw a maximum of 1.2 amps per horsepower. Example a 30 horse SPB motor operating on 460 Volt 3 phase the maximum amp draw would be 30 X 1.2= 36 amps. Also Once you know the maximum amperage you can ask for a power source that is 125% of the maximum or in this case you would need a 45 amp service.
