Scheduling is one of the most critical aspects of a concrete pour. There is no room for down time on a busy job site. Contractors with the right equipment place concrete efficiently, regardless of weather, time of day or jobsite conditions. Concrete pumps help mixer dispatchers by providing more predictable unloading times. The steady flow from the pump can also increase finisher productivity because of the lack of interruptions and delays. Pumps can be scheduled any time of day and can work around the clock, as long as operators and concrete are available. In the event of a problem, back-up systems can keep a pump running through job completion and wear parts are designed for easy replacement.
Site preparation for a typical pour can sometimes be time consuming, labor intensive, and unpredictable, hampering efficient scheduling. Concrete pumping can very often facilitate completion of an entire job from one location while keeping ready mix trucks safely at the curb. Pumps also reduce excavating time from 10 to 15 percent and make backfilling easier. As a result, your company will be more productive, stay on schedule and have more satisfied customers.
