Flatfloor, Jimmy "da Leveler" Buckley sent me a couple pics of an slc pour. He did some writing on the backs, but I'll let him explain here. The pics were not high-quality. I've tried to enhance them somewhat, but hey.

Beautiful colors on that floor don't you all agree? Rivals anything else I've seen around here, notice the subtle differences in the gray.

That pump is a nice little piece of works. It can pump SLC 80'-90' vertically and then run about 200' horizontally. It can pump 1 bag per minute so you can easily resurface 10,000 SF @ 1/4" in a day.

That pump looks a little small from the ones I seen..maybe it is my memory failing but I did take me awhile to droll all over it so it must have been a tad bigger version.

p.s. nice Ardex mixing bucket you got there Jim...hehehe

That job smells like money.

I was hoping no one would notice that. Figures you would That is not mine belongs to the contractor.

Maybe your thinking of a gypcrete pump. If you saw an Ardex pump they are even smaller. Course they can't compete with that one for power.

John You did good!

No I am thinking of a SLC pump. But maybe that is the same pump after all..the cost of the ones I seen were about 10,000. ...sound about right?

Maybe used. The one you see is a Chemgrout 550CG can be air propane or electrically powered about $15-16,000 new.
