How to Order a Concrete Pump

Ordering a Boom Pump

  • Are there overhead obstructions?
    • Power lines (min. 20ft clearance)
    • Trees
    • Low clearance bridges/buildings (need 13’ 6” clearance)
  • What size boom do you need?
  • Is there safe access for the truck to get into the jobsite?
  • The customer assumes all liability and charges for any damages and removal of the pump if it becomes stuck
  • Is there a flat area with stable ground to set the pump up on with enough space to accommodate the outriggers?
  • If setting up next to a footing or depression, know the 1 : 1 Rule. For every foot drop, set the pump outrigger back one foot (example: when setting up next to a 4’ deep footing, have the outrigger sitting no closer than 4’ from the footing)
  • The pump cannot setup outside of 3 degrees from level


Ordering a Trailer Pump

  • What is the farthest distance of the pour from where the concrete delivery truck can sit?
  • The pipe is rigid except for the last few hoses. Do you need any elbows or special pipe?

What We Need to Know

  • Your company’s name
  • Jobsite Address
  • Type of concrete being placed (this will determine the pump and system size)
  • Concrete Supplier
  • Concrete Yardage
  • Concrete Delivery Time (note: pumps need a minimum of ½ hour setup time. Large pumps, difficult setups and system jobs require additional setup time)
  • Phone number of person ordering pump, jobsite contact, and anyone else we can communicate with to complete the job
  • Do you have a place to prime the pump? (A slurry mix is used and is typically done outside of the pour)
  • Do you have a place to wash out the pump at the end of the day?
  • Have you allowed enough time to setup system?
  • Have you scheduled enough manpower to setup, handle and breakdown system?
  • Have you ordered a line pump mix?

What You Need to Know About Our Business

  • Operators need 10 hours off between shifts to drive a pump. Give us advanced notice when scheduling a pump during off hours
  • Operators cannot drive back in the yard if they have worked more than 16 hours (less for interstate). If you know a pour will be a long pour or is far from our yard, let us know so that we can make arrangements
  • The sooner you order a pump, the more likely we can accommodate sending a specific size pump or operator

What to Expect

  • Expect up to 1 yd of concrete left over in the pump.
  • We cannot washout into anything higher than 8 inches
  • It is the customer’s responsibility for removal of this concrete
  • Order one extra yard to accommodate for what will be lost in the pump
