Concrete pumps are an absolutely vital tool in the construction industry, but the fact they are so important is one reason why you shouldn’t purchase just any pump. These machines also represent a significant investment, so ending up with an unsuitable concrete pump is a big mistake. We might even extend this argument to say that repeatedly hiring suboptimal pumps – rather than buying the right one – is like committing a series of smaller errors.
But what IS the right concrete pump? Put simply, there is no better concrete pump than a custom-made pump. Let’s take a look at the advantages offered by a custom concrete pump…
Meet Requirements Exactly
When you consult with a trusted firm such as Callaghan Concrete Pumps to devise a custom-made concrete pump to suit your project(s), you know there won’t be any hitches along the way where it’s suddenly discovered that say, the pump can’t reach where it needs to reach or is unable to handle sufficient volume of concrete. It’s the difference between employing a model that’ll “probably be all right” to having one you know can do the job. Some would say you can’t put a price on that peace of mind.
Maximise the Safety Aspect
We’re not just talking about the pretty obvious benefit of not using a concrete pump that’s too large for your situation. When you invest in a custom concrete pump, then your entire team will become familiar with that pump – and learn how to transport, use and move around it safely in a range of circumstances. This flows on to the next point on our list…
Ease of Operation/Maintenance
Why go through the hassle of learning the idiosyncrasies of a series of different rented concrete pumps when you can master the operation and maintenance of a single custom-made pump? Having your primary operator(s) know the machine “inside out” is a way of guaranteeing that pumping work is always carried out efficiently with a minimum of stoppages due to poor control/mechanical fault.
Stay Within Your Budget
Bigger isn’t always better! Purchasing a custom-made concrete pump ensures you won’t spend any more on this particular tool than is necessary. Of course, you could opt for something smaller and hope to get away with it, but that may result in you having to buy/rent a second pump in the future. The advantage of your operator(s) developing expertise in using the custom concrete pump, as discussed in the previous point, is also bound to save your company money in the long term.
