So on the world record pour

I'm looking at the pictures, all the set up, all those booms, employees, all the yardage, hours.... What's the final billing on something that size? 100k? Way more? When ever I'm on highway work and they roll in the 550t crane it's about 30k for 8hrs. I'm always curious what the big boys earn on the big stuff

I am guessing they agreed a m3 price..

I'm sure you will never hear that figure. In Phoenix you could get that pour done for the price of renting four skid steers, (without operators of course).

Never been to Az or Ca but I really doubt that!!! Just from hear say on operator wages!!!

Don't doubt my man. You can get a 42M to do a 40 yd wall pour for $500.00.

Sad too say but because Conco is in the place and finish industry as well as the rebar industry. Their bids for pumping come in for free as long as they win the bid for rebar and place and finish

I like the idea of someone making a few wheelbarrows of cash doing the big stuff, that would kinda suck for all that setup that it's a giveaway for lowly rebar and finishing. As a proper pumper, I believe I walk on water the second I step foot on a job site

Conco is the contractor on this job start to finish!

so what was the most pumped by a single pump? How many had to pump the whole time?

Doug 02-28-2014 reply profile send pm notify

13 pumps pumping - 52, 46,42,47,47,38,38 boom only. Four 36,s pumping through 400-500' each and then plugging into four 32's as placing booms. Two 14000s pumping into M38/34 placing booms. 19 machines total. Took 18 hours.

And no dcrider, we don't pump for free. That's not how you turn a profit in the construction business.

Always a profit to be made. Maybe some of the people in this topic are upset because you guys got the job and not them .. hehe. Great job anyways guys. Hell of a project, and hell of a setup.
