Concrete boom pumps are a common sight on today’s construction jobsites. While there are several different types of concrete pumps, they are all capable of moving a variety of material quickly and efficiently, saving both time and money.
During our many decades in the business, The Conco Companies have been at the forefront of implementing the latest concrete technologies and developments. We are helped in this endeavor by owning and operating a fleet of the latest, state-of-the-art concrete pumping equipment.
One type of pump that is an important addition to Conco’s fleet is our articulating booms. Known also as roll-and-fold or Z-fold, they come in four-section multi-Z booms or five-section Z-Fold booms and offer versatility and a large working range. The booms provide easy maneuverability around obstacles, yet are ideal for hard-to-reach places as they have a good vertical reach (the exact amounts depends on the model). Another advantage of articulating booms is they fold into a compact size for easy transportation.
The Putzmeister 28Z is a perfect example of the versatility of articulating boom pumps, which is why Conco has one stationed at all of our pumping locations including Southern California, Northern California and Washington State. The pump provides a smooth concrete flow, while at the same time, has the smallest front outrigger footprint of all the models in its class. Furthermore, since the 28Z does not require a large vertical clearance to unfold, it can even be setup inside a building if desired. In addition the setup is quick and easy.
Furthermore, by featuring longer straight pipe for less stressful concrete flow and better wear on parts, these light and resilient pumps are readily adaptable to a variety of material. The multi-Z configuration can even pump if the boom is not fully extended, and fully extended it offers 89 ft. 7 in. of vertical reach for placing concrete in hard-to-reach places.
