Concrete Pump Truck


A

Arroyo

This is probably a silly question but we would surely like some
input..
We are forming out 85 feet of footing for a retaining wall and will
have to order a pump truck because a regular truck has no access and
wheelbarrows are too cumbersome.
Anyway our question is: Who runs the hose? Will it be the pump truck
operator or us? We have done some small regular pours before but never
used a pump. Is this diffucult to operate, etc..

Any help appreciated..

The pump truck operator will handle that, but you will need to have a
"nozzle man" who places the concrete.

Best of luck, and let us know how it comes out!

As was said before, but it bears repeating: you will be
wise to have TWO nozzle men. Well worth the extra few
bucks.

You are assuming an aerial pump. Although he did not specify, I think
the OP was talking about a floor pump. It takes a lot more guys to
manhandle hoses with a floor pump.
