All Your Pumping Questions Answered

What kind of oil does my pump take?

Depends on the motor. If it is a diesel engine, we recommend Heavy duty 15-40W.

What kind of hydraulic fluid does my pump use?

All pumps are different. Please call us directly for this answer.

How often do I need to change my engine fluids?

Engine oil, fuel filters, oil filter, and air filters should be changed every 200 hours or sooner. For engine coolant, call us for details.

How often do I need to change the hydraulic fluid on my pump?

Every 1000 hours or once per year, whichever comes first. (As long as your hydraulic system is not contaminated in any way. If it is contaminated, it will need to be replaced immediately.)

How do I start my new SCHWING line pump?

Check out our video on how to start a SCHWING line pump.

How often do I need to replace the wear parts on my pump?

*DISCLAIMER: every pump is different. These numbers are based on a pump that has been serviced on time, has not missed any fluid changes or oil changes, and is regularly greased. Also note that how you run your pump and what you are running through your pump could affect all of these numbers. Please call us directly for more specifics as these are just general guidelines.

On a cutting ring for a SCHWING 500 or bigger, every 600 hours roughly. Wear plates on a 500 or bigger, usually you go two cutting rings to one wear plate roughly every 1200 hours. Mud cups on a 500 or larger, roughly 600 hours. As soon as you see evidence of cement crème in the water box, it is time to change immediately.

The SP 305 Mud cups, every 200 hours or, if you start to see cement crème, in the water replace immediately. The cutting rings need to be changed every 400 hours roughly, and the wear plate every 800 hours roughly.

There are many variables here. These are just some rough guidelines. Please call us directly for more specific directions.
