Front Window Wells

This post is meant to demonstrate what actually happens when we pour concrete.  How does it get out of one of those huge rolling-mix cement trucks and into a wall or floor anyway?  Well besides a solid skilled crew you need one more major piece of equipment, the pump truck.  Basically the rolling-mix cement truck funnels the cement into a chamber in a pump truck that uses generator powered pumps to get the concrete flowing through a large rubber hose that can be manipulated into a location where the concrete is actually needed.  Pretty groovy.

Teamwork!   One to hold the line and one to direct is output

Almost done!
