About Boom Pumps
Boom pumps are truck-mounted concrete pumps with multi-section folding booms that can reach more than 100-meters. They pump concrete at a controlled rate precisely where it is needed in areas inaccessible to concrete trucks and thereby drastically reduce the cost of labor and speed up construction.
Boom pumps can work in low-overhead conditions such as the inside of buildings, underpasses and tunnels and some can reach into buildings through windows, doors and other wall openings. A boom pump having a final telescopic extendable boom section is especially effective in confined quarters.
Because of their reach and maneuverabilty, boom pumps have all but replaced cranes with buckets as the equipment of choice for placing concrete on all types of jobs. Pumping concrete with booms pumps is by far the most common and efficient method for many types of low and medium height building projects.
