Concrete is a material often used on construction sites. It is generally composed of sand and cement. Many machines and vehicles are used to produce, transport and pour concrete: concrete mixer trucks, concrete pump trucks, concrete mixer + pump trucks, concrete mixers, concrete plants, concrete products production units, spraying machines, power trowels, stationary concrete pumps and concrete pavers.
Concrete mixers are made to produce small amounts of concrete whereas concrete plants may produce large quantities of it. We can find stationary batch plants or mobile concrete batching plants which may be transported on construction sites.
Concrete is carried by concrete mixer trucks: its haulage must be made quickly to avoid that the concrete goes hard before reaching its destination. It is then vacuumed up with a concrete pump which is a concrete pump truck, a concrete mixer + pump truck or a screed pump which serves to pour a screed on the ground.
A concrete pump may be combined with a concrete boom which allows the transportation of the concrete at high heights. Spraying machines equipped with a pneumatic compressor may also be used: concrete is shot out in a form thanks to high pressure (known as the concrete shootout technique).
A concrete paver serves to spread a concrete layer on a few-meter width. The power trowel or concrete helicopter is used to level concrete, like a sander machine.
Concrete products production units are used to produce concrete blocks for building sites.
