The three types of equipment for pumping concrete available for hire

Because there are so many different circumstances that call for this type of equipment, there are also variants of the equipment itself. Through iSeekplant you’re able to search through three different categories:

Boom

Generally used on bigger projects, this type includes the arm of a crane which holds onto a rubber tube connected to the engine which has the ability to pump high volumes of liquid concrete at substantial distances vertically.

Line

More widely used on small sites, this offers a great deal of mobility as it’s truck-mounted. The concrete pumps through tubing as with the Boom, however the Line doesn’t have the height or volume capabilities of the Boom.

Shotcreting

Using compressed air, shotcreting is a versatile method to form a building’s structural and non-structural components.
