Concrete pumping navigates a range of access issues that could otherwise make traditional concrete delivery very hard work!
Our boom pumps can lift our delivery pipes up to a height of 42 metres, making them the ideal solution if your site is on an upper floor or in the back garden of a house with no access. Our ground line pumps, on the other hand, are ideal if your site is set back from the road, as they can cover up to 150 metres to deliver concrete to your site. Both pumps offer quick, clean and efficient concrete delivery, saving you time and manpower.
What is a boom pump?
Usually mounted onto a truck, a boom pump (or truck-mounted pump) has an arm that can be controlled remotely to make the delivery and application of concrete much easier, especially if the concrete needs to be delivered at height. Given that boom pumps have an output of around 150 cubic yards of concrete an hour, they are perfect for high-volume concrete pumping and large-scale projects.
What is a line pump?
Also known as stationary pumps, line pumps are characterised by their long hoses which are mounted onto a trailer or truck. While line pumps aren’t the best for high-volume concrete pumping (they have an output of somewhere between 20-90 cubic yards an hour), they are excellent at high-accuracy and horizontal pouring, making them ideal for smaller-scale residential projects.
What pump do I need for my project?
Which pump you decide to go with for your particular project will depend on what you need. If the pour site has some verticality to it, there’s a good chance that you will need a boom pump so you can reach it. Equally, if it’s a larger project and more concrete needs to be pumped quickly, it’s best to go with a boom pump.
However, if the pour site is smaller or requires precision pouring, you will find that a line pump will be much better suited to the job.
Given that both pumps are truck-mounted, there should be no issues when it comes to portability.
