Hi I am new to this and I was just wondering what makes are the best concrete boom pumps between Reed, Concord, Alliance, Putzmeister, Schwing,? I heard the newer pumps are not as good as the older ones?

all depends on where and what you are pumping, and how well you maintain your pumps!

my opinion would be 2000-2007 putzmeister we have 5 of them and they fulfill all our pumping needs well built, tough and reliable but thats just my two cents. we had schwing pumps we were not to happy with but they still did the job

I've ran just about all of them

1) Schwing they last a lifetime , may not pump the harsher mixes as well as the putz s-tube , but if you are looking for a pump that will last you a lifetime a 1995-2006 schwing 32,34,39,45 meter is the way to go

1.2) is the putz , smooth operation , electronics will be a learning curve to trouble shoot but their service department will get you out of most jams . will pump harsher mixes , and if taken care of will last a lonnnng time also. 28 meter - 61 meter 1997-2007 models

2) Concord same s-tube simple electronics , the 40 meter is the pride of that manufacturer in my opinion great all around pump.

All the rest I have nothing good to say about
