Wall concrete needs to be delivered into the wall properly through a pipe threaded to within 1200mm of the bottom. The pipe will need to be smaller than the concrete
pump’s boom pipes so a reducer is needed. Ensure readymix concrete is available with 10mm aggregate within a 40 minute journey time before choosing our solution.
Unfortunately volumetric mixers cannot be used because they cannot mix in the Compact All Civil.
