There is such a wide variety of concrete pumps on the market today that there is one designed to handle almost any job specifications. By having the advantage of the long reach of a boom pump on hand, it allows access to areas on the jobsite that would otherwise be difficult to get to. Boom pumps also provide solutions for placing concrete up onto the highest floors of tall skyscrapers as well as other projects that otherwise might have been impossible before the advent of today’s sophisticated pumps.
Boom pumps also can place concrete faster and with more precision than any other method of placement. Pumped concrete requires less handling as the pump can place it directly where it is needed and a project can be finished not only faster but by using less manpower. Since accuracy is improved in the pumping process, it typically results in fewer delays along the way and produces a more professional outcome.
Furthermore, when large boom pumps are used, it means that fewer smaller pieces of equipment are needed, and this too saves time by not having to move smaller machinery around a site and then have to set it up again. In addition pumped concrete offers better quality control that produces a more durable, stronger finished product. Also as less water is required for pumped concrete, it helps to prevent or mitigate the shrinking and cracking problems that are common in concrete. Finally pumped concrete is not as affected by weather conditions as other methods that often result in work stoppages and delays.
