“We are always looking for ways to further develop our machines to allow for increased production capabilities and a lower cost of operation for our end users,” said Raymond Massey, Director of Sales and Marketing for Schwarze. “We’ve listened to our customers, as well as our dealers, and made adjustments to improve operation for the end user.”

It also sports an upgraded air intake for the blower, stronger shrouding, and an improved hydraulic pump.

“It all starts with better component design,” said Jeff Witt, Product Specialist for Schwarze. “From there we move into improving what the SP-550 is already known for: ease of operation, longer component life, exceeding government standards, and of course, repairing any sized road damage with speed and quality.”

The re-designed SP-550 is now available through Schwarze’s extensive dealer network.
