What is a ground line concrete pump?
With a ground line pump, concrete is pumped from a powerful hydraulic pump on a small truck through a series of pipes that run along the ground, around any obstacles, to where the concrete is needed. The concrete pipeline can be made from steel or flexible material. At Rapid Readymix, we use a mix of both, 90 and 45-degree “elbow” joints to create the most efficient route from our truck to where the concrete is needed.
Most jobs use up to 20 metres of pipeline, but we can supply over 100 metres if needed (just tell us in advance if you need more, as we provide up to 60 metres as standard). It’s much faster than barrowing – with our pumps, you’ll get about 1m3 of concrete per minute.
