Schwing extends new signature model, advances boom articulation

The S 65 SX is the Schwing America’s new flagship and longest boom model. Set for 2018 World of Concrete premier at the entry of the Las Vegas Convention Center Central Hall, it incorporates a five-section boom with uniform 5-in. diameter pipeline, plus the manufacturer’s Overhead Roll and Fold design. In addition to providing 210 ft. 8 in. of vertical and 197.5 in. of horizontal reach, all 65SXs come standard with the EASy one-sided outrigger system, minimizing pump footprint on crowded jobsites. The Super X telescopic front outrigger spread is balanced with rear slewing outriggers, which centers the hopper when set up in EASy configurations.
