Renting a Concrete Pump

Hello, my name is Tony. I recently decided to rip up my asphalt driveway and lay concrete down in its place. My drive is very big and I didn't fancy using a wheelbarrow to transport all of the wet concrete that would be required to complete the job so I decided to rent a concrete pump. The only problem was that I didn't have a clue which was the right pump for me. I visited a concrete contractor who gave me some great advice about choosing and operating a concrete pump. He also helped me to lay the concrete. I learnt so much I just had to share it here.
