Did you drive down to the rental yard and bring it home yourself (trailer
mounted or what?)? How far will it pump? How much will it pump? How big is
I haven't seen one of these and am interested in knowing more about it.
This could be really handy but I'm not sure if it'll pump enough to get
the concrete truck unloaded with the time allowed. The line-pumps I've used
are all truck-mounted and are *really large* so I don't know if something
from the rental yard will do the job.
OTOH if you're pouring something bigger than anchors, i.e. self-support
tower base, you DO want to go to the rental yard and get a concrete vibrator.
This'll move the concrete around in the hole easily and is *really* worth the
forty bucks or so it costs to rent.
