Mobile Concrete Pumping FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

What Pump do I need for my job?
The pumping equipment required to service your project will be dependent on a range of factors, ie:

  • the distance concrete needs to be pumped;
  • the mix of concrete that is to be pumped;
  • how far equipment needs to reach;
  • where the pump can set up on site – if there is uneven ground, overhead wires or other obstacles, if road closures are required;

It is usual for our qualified personnel to review your project’s needs and assess your site’s conditions to determine the most appropriate equipment for your job. 

What are the hire rates?
Rates are determined with reference to the particular circumstances of your job.  Some items to be considered may include;

  • the size of equipment required;
  • how much travel time is involved;
  • whether an additional man is required;
  • whether the pump can be washed out on site;
  • whether weekend work or night work will be required;

After assessing your project’s needs, our experienced Team will provide a quote for your consideration. 

What is a Line Pump?
A Line Pump comprises a hopper to receive concrete from a concrete Agitator and an engine to pump the concrete.  Pistons or squeeze mechanisms push the concrete from the hopper through a combination of pipes or hoses that have been attached to the Line Pump along the ground to where the concrete is being poured.  Line Pumps can be mounted on a trailer (for pulling behind a truck), permanently fixed on a truck body or mounted as stationary pumps on legs (used generally in long term applications such as high rise buildings).  Both High Pressure and Low Pressure versions are available.  High pressure pumps are needed for pumping long distances whilst low pressure pumps are used in instances like spraying pools or walls or filling core block walls.

What is a Boom Pump?
A Boom Pump is a truck mounted concrete pump with an unfolding or telescopic boom permanently attached.  A permanent pipe runs from the hopper along the length of the boom with a series of swivelling bends allowing the boom/pipe combination to unfold or extend.  A boom pump enables concrete to be pumped over obstacles or to great heights or depths.  We operate a fleet of booms ranging from 26m to 48m in size.  Boom length is chosen with reference to a job’s particular needs.    Hiring rates are generally greater as boom size increases.
