ANNISTON, Ala. — Blastcrete Equipment Company, manufacturer of concrete mixers, pumps and related products, offers the Model RD6536 Skid Steer Pump Attachment. Featuring a universal design compatible with any skid steer, the 3-inch hydraulic squeeze pump is ideal for ICF, block fill, form and pour, driveways, basements and various shotcrete applications.
With the ability to pump grout materials, 3/8-inch shotcrete and 3/4-inch structural concrete mixes, the RD6536 is a fast, efficient solution for contractors performing a variety of concrete and shotcrete applications. The unit offers a variable speed of 0-25 cubic yards per hour. Vertical pumping distance reaches 50 feet with the use of a rubber delivery line, while horizontal distance can reach up to 250 feet.
A hydraulic agitator is included in the receiving hopper. The agitator’s continuous motion keeps the mix well-blended, ensuring aggregate and sand stay evenly suspended throughout the mix. Not only does this result in high-strength concrete, it keeps the aggregate and sand from settling to the bottom of the hopper and clogging near the suction area.
To relieve pressure build-up clogs and eliminate potential damage to the pump, the RD6536 can be run in both forward and reverse. Hydraulically powered controls are located on the pump and also operate both agitator and pump speed.
The RD6536 weighs in at 2,700 pounds and hydraulic oil requirement is 18 GPM at 3,000 PSI. The 48-inch wide frame (55-inch with receiving hopper) is designed to be narrow enough to fit between the wheel wells of most standard work trucks. The unit includes forklift pockets to allow quick and easy loading and unloading from the transport vehicle.
Maintenance requirements for the RD6536 are simple and take just minutes. The steel-constructed unit is designed to prevent any concrete from coming in contact with the pump’s moving parts, further reducing maintenance concerns and ensuring a long service life. The primary wear part, the rubber pumping tube, can be easily replaced on the jobsite in about 20 minutes. And unlike other types of concrete pumps, clean-up on the RD6536 squeeze pump is fast and hassle-free. Using just water and a sponge ball, the pump can be cleaned out in approximately 5 minutes.
For 60 years, Blastcrete Equipment Company has been manufacturing safe, reliable and user-friendly solutions for the shotcrete industry. With a complete product line consisting of concrete mixers, pumps and related products, Blastcrete Equipment Company is poised to meet the needs of the commercial and residential construction, ICF and SCIP building systems, refractory and underground markets.
