Concrete Pumps and Sydney: Worksite Lowlights

September 8th, 2017 / also / ALSO Pumping

A construction site is an eclectic, interesting spot. It is full of different stakeholders and contractors through different phases of the project, various bits of equipment, and accompanying onlookers. The most efficient site is not one full of drama – but on occasion, there are some lowlights worth sharing.

Concrete pumps in Sydney are a vital aspect of the pouring work, and they are complemented with pieces of equipment, including concrete buffers. These unique tools are brought to bear on the rough surface of the concrete pad, to sand it down to a smooth finish, after the concrete has been laid and set.

But, unfortunately, they can sometimes have a mind of their own. Their spinning base can occasionally get caught up on the ground, and when they do, it is best to stand back.

This crew has the right idea staying clear, as that spinning handle would leave a solid mark on any who tried to run in and get in its way. It was probably best that the lad with the wood beam decided against his master plan, as he is standing on the side to which the beam would swing once it made contact with the runaway buffer, and could potentially have thrown him to the ground. Throwing a tarp overtop of it might seem unorthodox, but it eventually serves its purpose, by offering something for onlookers to grab on to after a bit of flailing around.
