Concord stretched the limits of concrete-pump reach with model CCP-65SZ-225 — the world's largest concrete boom pump with a vertical reach of 212 feet (about 65 meters). The five-section Z-fold design has a horizontal extension reaching 199 feet, and the boom rotates 370 degrees.

Concord's CCP-65SZ-225 is the only extra-long-reach machine with standard 5-inch delivery line and all standard elbows. The manufacturer says its double-walled pipeline is less expensive, and lasts longer than the 4.4- to 4.6-inch pipe on other large pump trucks because concrete has to move faster through smaller-diameter pipe to match the production.

Maximum pump output is 300 cubic yards per hour. The hard-chromed delivery cylinder is 11 inches by 83 inches. Hopper capacity is 21 cubic feet, and a hopper vibrator and automatic hopper lubrication system are standard equipment.

Telescoping front outriggers spread 44 feet 10 inches, and the rear spread is 47 feet 6 inches. The machine weighs 126,000 pounds and rides on a 53-foot-long, six-axle Mack chassis.

Concord's first CCP-65SZ-225 boom pump was purchased by Pumpco Inc. of Forest Park, Ga. — a firm that has owned and operated two 60-meter Concord pump trucks for three years.

"Back in 2003, we had our concerns about committing so much to Concord. Concord was a relatively new company in the pump manufacturing industry," says Jim Ainsworth, vice president of Pumpco. "But the two 60-meter Concords we purchased absolutely have proved their value to us. I was so happy with the two 60s I asked, 'You guys got anything bigger?' Concord came back with the 65-meter design. It's worth a million...but we didn't pay that."

Suggested retail price for the CCP-65SZ-225 is, in fact, $1 million, and it comes with Concord's five-year-structural/three-year warranty. Standard features include one cable-tethered remote control as well as an Omnex radio controller.
