tt- Just wondering if you seen one of these modern cement auger booms in action? I see them on a regular basis pumping "mud" into forms for house foundations but here they must be pouring in cement to do the basement floor. They typically do this after the house is framed up first, go figure. Not the best pix because of the low light and sun angle but they are quite the machine. I wonder how much psi they have to have to push the cement "up the hill"...?

PC, I've seen like minded units and they scare the [L] outta me as they use them to pump the cement up to the top of the grain elevators. I have no idea what PSI they use but I hate being around that much pressure [unless it's the wife after one of my little indiscretions] :shock: . I worked for free at a coal fired power plant back in the day to get my steam time for my steam license. 7,000 psi was about as much fun to be around as that many people on a fishing trip. :evil:
I remember a time when you had a screw up making cement that a wheel barrow had tipped over. :roll: Now with technology when they have a screw up people disappear. :shock:

I use these all the time. They usually pump between 1000-1200 psi

Worked on one when they were building the new paper mill here in town. No air pressure at all just two piston cylinders that moved the concrete.
