Blastcrete Equipment LLC recently introduced the X-40D trailer-mounted concrete pump system. The X-40D provides high-volume pumping in a compact design for a variety of applications and rounds out the Blastcrete product line with a low-maintenance, versatile pump capable of handling a range of rock sizes.
Maximum Versatility
With the ability to handle aggregate mixes up to 1.5 inches, the X-40D provides a versatile pump solution that contractors can use for projects ranging from residential concrete jobs to highway infrastructure improvements.

“This unit is the culmination of an industry-oriented engineering process and supply partnership focused on increasing versatility and decreasing maintenance,” said Scott Knighton, Co-CEO of Blastcrete Equipment LLC. “Additionally, because we spent time talking with contractors in the field, we saw the importance of features like remote-control operation. Although touchscreens have become common with this equipment, our design eliminates them because customer feedback indicated they are difficult to operate when wearing gloves wet with concrete.”

The X-40D incorporates a unique PULSAR piston pump from Mecbo, featuring a long stroke to push a greater volume of concrete with less mechanical movement, thereby reducing maintenance and providing for a smooth pour. The Mecbo PULSAR pump system has also been shown to reduce energy consumption by 30 to 40 percent.

The 6-inch by 39-inch swing tube piston pump is complimented by a rugged receiving agitator to keep the concrete mixed and prime for pumping. The X-40D pump features 1,000 psi of piston face pressure, with a 5-inch discharge and the ability to put out 40 cubic yards of concrete per hour.

“The durability of the product stands as a testament to Blastcrete’s unwavering commitment to producing equipment that is reliable, made in America, and easy to use,” Knighton said.

Smooth Mobility
The 7,080-pound pump and integrated trailer is easy to haul to jobs that range from creating piers for overpasses to backyard projects.

The pump’s four crane lifting eyes allow operators to position the machine precisely where they need it. Forklift tubing is mounted to the lower hopper for convenient flat pack removal.

The X-40D’s wireless remote control allows operators to control the pump’s functions with precision from a distance. The durable, solid-state electronic components function in a wide variety of weather conditions.

Factory options that can be added include the Auto Lubrication System and the 12 VDC Screen Vibrator. Power options include the 72-horsepower Yanmar 4TNV98CT-NKW diesel, a 74-horsepower Deutz TD2.9 diesel, or a 75-horsepower electric motor. Both diesel engines are water cooled with no diesel exhaust fluid.
