A concrete pump is intended to make easier work of transporting your concrete from the mixer truck to your designated pour site. If you require a pump to help with your project, the first thing you need to know is whether our equipment will be able to access your site. Pump vehicles can vary in size depending on line size and truck type, but these are the minimum size dimensions of space required for the mixers and pumps we use to access your site:
If you’re not sure which of the pumps would be the best solution for your particular project, our team is always happy to help in any way they can. It will depend on the amount of concrete you need to pump, how far it will need to travel to discharge the load, what the terrain will be like between the mixer and the pour site and what specific object(s) are potentially obstructing the way.
The following information may be helpful when it comes to deciding your requirements:
Concrete Boom Pumps – Boom pumps are able to extend to up to 42 metres, although further line-based extensions can be added to this if required. Boom pumps are ideal for navigating the pour over obstructions such as walls, gates or fences.
Concrete Ground Line Pumps – Line pumps can reach up to 80 metres and are intended to channel the concrete pour over an otherwise unreachable distance, such as along a site inaccessible for the mixer truck or around corners. Line pumps can also be used to pour concrete indoors.
