Concrete Pumps

We can provide effective pumps on site

Sometimes it is not feasible to maneuver the concrete truck on location. In these circumstances, the truck will remain on the street beside your property, and a pump will be fitted which will transport your concrete from the truck to its intended usage. We are the only concrete supplier that offers Concrete Pumping Melbourne as a helpful additional service.

Sometimes large amounts of concrete in a truck are simply too heavy to be driven across your property. The immense weight would risk causing damage. In this case, a pump can be used to transport large volumes of concrete directly to your project site. In some other scenarios, it is not the weight of the truck that is an obstacle but its size. Perhaps your back yard is inaccessible to a large truck. Here you can use a pump for as little as 1.0m³ of concrete. There are two types of concrete pumps: line pumps and boom pumps.

Choose the versatile concrete pumping solution in Melbourne

A line pump is a very dynamic solution to the problems of concrete transport. Line pumps are essentially pipes that are laid on the ground and attached directly to your project site. They can be used for anything form filling cavities to laying entire slabs or foundations. This type of pump is ideal for sites which have restricted access, as the pump itself has a very minimal footprint and they can be installed on virtually any angle. The pumps that we provide carry 80m Line on them.

Pour quickly with efficient concrete pumping equipment in Melbourne

Boom pumps are crane-like structures which send concrete up and over rather than along the ground in a pipe. They are commonly used for pouring house slabs, foundations, or any project which requires a large volume poured quickly. Boom pumps also come in handy for work on high rise buildings.

Boom Pumps are much more efficient at laying concrete when compared to line pumps. However, boom pumps do require certain site conditions if they are to be used safely. They are rather large in scale, and require a large amount of room above the project area. Any site that is cluttered with trees, power lines or other buildings may not be able to use this pumping apparatus.

Boom pumps are the most effective concrete pumping method in Melbourne when given the correct site conditions. Boom pumps are a crane like pump which are required to setup the outrigger legs on firm and stable ground, the ground needs to be relatively flat and the boom needs room to open up and be free from obstructions like power lines and trees. Boom pumps also require flat and stable ground, otherwise the pumps risks toppling over.

Line Pumps

Line pumps are the most versatile type of concrete pump, they have a small footprint and can be setup on nearly any angle. They have numerous sized delivery lines which can be used for filling cavity walls to pumping bulk concrete into slabs and foundations. Line pumps can be used on numerous job sites where there is simply not enough room for a boom pump to setup. The type of jobs a line pump can do are endless. Our line pumps carry 80m Line on them and more pipe can be arranged for those jobs where you just need the concrete that little bit further.

Boom Pumps

Boom pumps are the most efficient method of placing concrete given the correct site conditions. Boom pumps are a crane like pump which are required to setup the outrigger legs on firm and stable ground, the ground needs to be relatively flat and the boom needs room to open up and be free from obstructions like power lines and trees. Boom pumps are regularly used for house slabs, foundations, where large volumes of concrete need to be placed and on high rise buildings.

The concrete pumps get used on many small jobs when you simply can’t get a wheel barrow to where you need the concrete placed.

We have a pump for your every requirement, whether it is 2m3 to a cavity wall of 250m3 to a car park slab.
