Hello all
I am getting a G4 as my first decent pump and would like to start using it for liquid screeds and self leveling as well as ocr’s and Other bagged products.
Just want to get full use from it and was wondering if you could recommend a decent
Screed supplier who gives training and guarantees
Also any advise if anyone uses a G4 for screeds
Thanks

On paper maybe, are you going to run an R pump unit and need above 40ltrs a minute? If not the smart is enough.

I might get away with the smart but was thinking just get the standard as it’s not a massive price difference but will need to look into the screeds a bit more as not really sure on how many liters a minute I will need to pump

You may be barking up the wrong tree Jerseyboy with the screed and a G4, material too expensive, the volume of material used is massive. Best price is Tarmac B in a bag, we trialled it with a full palette on a job, too slow and not the best product, we pour loads of Tarmac A with a conveying pump.

Ok mate thanks for the advise
Am just in limbo really as I’ve a 32000 sft house to do (internals) with parmurex
And skim finish and need a pump and was thinking of the G4 which I could maybe
Try the screeds aswell but after that job is done my work will be smaller so any pump advise would be good
Thanks

You'll be looking at low profile screeds and leveling if it's from a bag. The smart will lay at 35lpm with a D8-1.5 its ample quick enough. I had a standard G4 capable of pumping upto 80lpm with an R pump but never once needed it.

Yes mate if I was screeding and self leveling it would be houses and smaller jobs Wouldn’t want big jobs
Thanks for the advise
