Slash labour costs and get the job completed quicker with the right tools. iSeekplant can provide a number of concrete pumps for domestic and commercial construction projects across the Newcastle area. No matter the size of the job, we have a pump to suit your needs.
If you’re pouring slabs, shotcreting or laying foundations, you’ll find our website to be the ideal partner on any job. Find out exactly what local suppliers have to offer without even needing to call them and save time to find the machines you need.
Our listings are divided into boom and line pumps, with a large range of shotcreting units and stationary skid pumps available. Boom pumps are the most commonly used pump in the commercial sector, facilitating concrete to be pumped in large volumes to many storeys above the ground. This makes them the ideal choice for high-rise construction. We offer a range of units ranging in height from below 20 metres to above 50 metres, making sure that no matter the needs of your job, you will have the tools to ensure it goes as easy and efficiently as can be.
For jobs that require a mobile pump or pumping to a destination with restricted access, we offer a range of line pumps to suit your needs. We have truck-mounted units that can dispense concrete using interconnecting tubes, allowing them to reach around corners or into tighter areas than a boom pump. This makes them the ideal choice for projects such as swimming pools, pavements and concrete slabs for smaller structures such as residential buildings.
Shotcreting is also another alternative. This system puts out concrete at a high velocity from a specially designed hose, placing and compacting it concurrently. This allows the operator to work with surfaces of any shape or relative orientation (i.e. a curved roof).
