Line Dragon History
Line Dragon is the result of years of hard work from concrete men Tank and Jake who, after decades in the concrete pumping business, decided to invent a better and safer way to place concrete. At 17, Tank started to operate a 28-meter Schwing Concrete Pump for a construction company. In 1997, they decided to start a custom concrete pumping company and started to pump for other concrete contractors. With having only a 28-meter pump (about 56 feet of reach) he ended up doing a lot of line pours, so Tank was always handling line and using system to reach the pours. In 2002, he came up with the idea that there should be some kind of machine to drag the system and place the concrete. After contemplating on this for a few years Tank decided to see what he could come up with. He knew if this machine was going to work it had to have the ability to move forward, reverse, direct side to side and had to use the same system contractors were dragging by hand.
Made For Concrete Workers … By Concrete Workers
After more than 24 years in concrete pumping, Tank and Jake understand what concrete workers and managers need: productivity and safety. The safety factor is a big advantage, as costly injuries due to dragging and repositioning the heavy hoses involved with these operations are eliminated. Each year, Line Dragon finds new ways to improve the concrete placement industry with better products. We have an active relationship with our customers that allow us to continuously deliver the right solutions tailored directly to their needs, keeping concrete men productive and safe.
