Determining if the concrete can be placed directly from the truck or if it will need to be pumped
Can you get a truck up close to where the concrete’s final destination is?
Trucks can’t get close enough to the pour for four reasons:
- The ground surrounding the project is too wet and the truck will sink.
- The slope leading to the concrete pour is too great for the truck.
- There is too narrow of an opening for where the truck would need to pass to reach where the concrete is needed.
- The pour is big and the trucks chute can not reach everywhere concrete will need to be poured.
