The all-new HJC5410THB-56 concrete pump from Shantui is a 56m reach machine
Heavy investment in research and development at Shantui has seen the introduction of an array of new machines, including that of its largest ever concrete pump. This launch is part of a steady diversification on the part of Shantui, which is expanding its range from its previous reliance on crawler dozers. The new HJC5410THB-56 pump runs on a four axle truck chassis and weighs 42tonnes, while it measures 13.85m long. With its six section boom it can provide concrete to a height of 56m and can deliver material at a maximum design rate of 170m 3
/min. A rugged structure is said to maximise stability and durability while it has X-configuration outriggers. At 2.5m wide it can be driven on most highways and is said to offer high mobility, while its 4m height with the boom folded allows it to be driven safely under most conventional road bridges and overpasses. A series of safety systems minimise the risk of accidents while control is said to be easy, with manual and automatic operating modes.
