Accurate Machine And Tools


The first/pour video was about 25,000sqf and about 900 yards with some plumbing. I think it took us about 7 hours to pour this one because we had to move the pumps and few times.

The second pour on this 100,000 sqf slab was poured last Friday night. 40,000 sqf. 130 trucks, 1300 yards delivered on the nose. It took 8.5 hours to pour it at 10" thick. We used two pumps and even tailgated a dozen or so trucks but even then the laser had litter trouble keeping up with the concrete going down.

Third pour will happen this Friday and will be the colored office area. Only about 150 yards.

The 4th pour will be about 37,000 sqf because that want to block some of it out by the dock.

Hope you concrete heads enjoy as much as I do!

Re: Accurate Machine And Tools


My buddy had one and let me play with it. Bad idea.

It ended up across the street. You really need a wide open field to use them unit you get good.

In my defense, it was broken when it was handed to me.

Haha, I'm actually really careful with it and do even get half as high as you're allowed. Pretty frustrating when its not your error that causes it to crash but I should've not used those new propellers.

Re: Accurate Machine And Tools


Thats cool.
I can't lie the first thing i thought of was "man it would be pretty funny if the drone dropped out of the sky into the middle of the slab"
But luckily for you, it didn't

Good thing the owner is a specialty contractor that does great work and took my machine in and fixed it a day later. Those guys are great!
