ALWAYS DEPEND ON A CONCRETE PUMP FOR THE JOB!
"Concrete Pumps Are Reliable."
A modern concrete pump in the hands of a professional concrete pumping operation is very reliable. The break-down factor is about 1%. With the widespread use of concrete pumps, you can generally get a replacement pump quickly, even if from a different company. Concrete pumping companies work together to be sure the customer is serviced. Most pumpers carry spare parts and can fix most problems quickly.
"Will I Need A Special Mix?"
Modern concrete pumps will pump most standard mixes. If a mix has to be changed, it generally will not require additional cement or expense, as the requirements a pump needs -- a well-graded, homogeneous, dense mix -- are things that are important for good concrete. Good concrete -- good to finish, good to place -- generally pumps good.
