A crucial part of concrete pump maintenance is lubrication. Operators should lubricate the boom once a week and undertake a visual inspection of the boom and pipes. Most concrete pumps are equipped with an auto-lube mechanism that automatically greases all moving parts. If the automatic lubrication system fails, operators can manually grease parts with a grease gun.
Concrete pump operators should also check the water level in the wash-box and the oil level daily. Check the general condition of the vehicle, especially the tyres and oil, as industrial use of a concrete pump can cause extreme wear to many sections of the machine.
