*These videos are not a substitute for the printed manual that comes with all REED pumps, it is only to aid in the understanding of how our machines work. When working with a REED Pump or Gunite Machine, it is extremely important that everyone using the machine has read the manuals and has a clear understanding of how the machine works. When working with REED equipment, we suggest that you always wear proper protective attire, including safety glasses, gloves, dust masks, etc to prevent injury.*
REED A Series “Rockmaster” Pumps Feature…
Best Value on the Market! REED’s A Series Concrete Pumps offer the perfect combination of horsepower, concrete pressure, pumping power and reliability – all at a veryreasonable price!
“True Reverse”. If your line plugs, the pump’s S-Valve can reverse the flow of concrete in the line to relieve the pressure. This can dislodge rock jams quickly and safely. (Ball valve pumps cannot do this!)
74 (Tier 4) or 82hp (Tier 3) Perkins Diesel Engine. This best-in-class horsepower gives A Series Pumps the ability to handle a wide variety of pumping applications:
Commercial slabs and decks
Tunnel and mine support
Casting concrete for tunnels
Residential concrete flatwork (patios, sidewalks, foundations and footings)
Big rock concrete civil projects
Vertical concrete pumping (multiple story buildings).
The Rockmaster is capable of doing the same job as pumps that cost almost twice as much!
Heavy Duty S-Valve. This valve gives the Rockmaster the ability to pump the harshest pea gravel mixes all the way up to 1″ (25mm) hard rock concrete (even larger 1.5″ aggretate (38mm) with the new A40HP Model!) (Ball valve pumps are restricted to pea gravel mixes.)
Concrete Pressure. Rockmaster pumps offer either 903 psi concrete pressure (A30 & A30HP models) or 1172 psi (A40HP model) for pushing concrete further and faster than competitors in the same class.
Chromed concrete cylinders. Chromed cylinders deliver longer service life than standard steel cylinders.
User friendliness. In addition to being extremely simple to operate, the pump features only 4 hydraulic hose groups (8 hoses total), so a few spares will back up the whole pump.
Cost Effectiveness. The Rockmaster requires less maintenance and fewer wear parts than a ball valve pump. Its low cost of ownership makes it an excellent investment option if you’re considering purchasing your first concrete pump.
No other concrete pump has the power, versatility, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness that REED’s Rockmaster A Series Pumps deliver!
* Theoretical distances and performance shown above are estimated using standard industry methods.
Actual performance will vary depending on the concrete pump (concrete pressure, horsepower), material (mix design, slump, local sand and rock characteristics), and delivery system (pipeline diameter, type (steel or hose) and reductions/bends.
Maximum output, pressure, and distance cannot be reached simultaneously. Specifications subject to change without prior notice.
