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.

He also helped me to lay the concrete. I learnt so much I just had to share it here.
