How does a concrete line pump work? 

August 8th, 2019.

With a seemingly ever-expanding list of concrete suppliers in today’s plant hire marketplace, figuring out how to pump concrete into your site can be tricky. It’s important to know the different methods of concrete pumping to save yourself as much time and money as possible. Cutting down on site costs where possible is always a top priority for builders, so here’s everything you need to know about concrete line pumps.

What does a concrete line pump do?

Concrete line pumps are very simple - they’re made up of a long hose that is attached to a stationary pump on a mounted trailer. The concrete line pump is second to none when it comes to horizontal pumping. The long hose allows the operator to direct the concrete pour with ease, and the hose is incredibly versatile in its ability to be extended as long as you need. Concrete line pumping provides operators with the ability to pump much longer distances than other conventional methods and is a fan favourite around residential sites.

When is a concrete line pump used?

By nature, the line pump is a very versatile and flexible piece of machinery. Concrete line pumping handles lower-volumes of concrete when compared to some other pumping practices like boom pumping but is very useful for smaller residential projects. You’ll typically use a concrete line pump for jobs such as repaving a driveway, building a swimming pool, or other smaller scale construction sites.

Operators who use concrete line pumps won’t be able to push out a lot of concrete in a very short amount of time, and this speed difference is welcomed by most builders because of how much money it saves them. Concrete line pumps are almost always a comparatively cheaper alternative to boom pumps or high rise concrete pumping. That being said, it’s important to always hire the machine that is right for your job, cost-effectiveness aside.

Advantages of concrete line pumping

Hiring a concrete line pump is the way to go for a lot of smaller scale projects. The main benefits of hiring a concrete line pump are:

  • Fantastic at horizontal pumping
  • Perfect for small residential construction sites
  • Extendable hose to suit your needs
  • More flexibility to fit tricky areas
  • Comparatively cheaper


Downfalls of concrete line pumping

Although there aren’t many negative aspects to choosing concrete line pumping, it’s worth noting that the concrete line pump has a much slower pump speed when you compare it to other options on the market. Boom pumps will allow you to pour concrete at a much faster rate, although they will be more expensive.
