What’s the difference between boom pumps and boomless pumps?
When ready mix concrete or liquid screed is laid at a site, it needs a concrete pump of some kind to transfer the wet mix. The specifics of your project and the volume of concrete that you need for it will determine which of the two pumps you’ll need, but what are the key differences between the two?
Boom pumps are often used in bigger jobs. They use a remote-controlled robotic arm to deliver concrete with precision. Boom pumps don’t have to be as close to the site as they have the arm to help, and they save a lot of manual labour. They are suitable for commercial and residential jobs and are useful for accessing heights; it’s a favourite with many for their quick working time, extendable reach and cost efficiency.
Boomless pumps, as you may have guessed from the name, lack the robotic arm of the boom. Instead of transferring concrete via the boom, boomless pumps lay concrete straight from the vehicle via pipes. Our minipump however is still capable of delivering concrete over 100m vertically and 200m horizontally.
