Bad to the Bone


Bad to the Bone

When Art Chadsey from Stony Plain, Alberta decided he was going to take the next step in his career and start his own pumping business, he was determined to stand out from the competition. With the help of Concord Concrete Pumps International Ltd. and renowned airbrush artist Curtis Hamm, he has created a truly one of a kind machine. As an experienced pump operator Art used his years of working knowledge to create one of the most unique concrete pumps to ever roll off the Concord production line.

After selecting a Concord CCP-38X-170, Art chose the name “Bare Bones Concrete Pumping” and let artist Curtis Hamm work his magic. Curtis used a combination of full color Skeleton images mixed with one color ghost skulls throughout to create a rolling masterpiece. The Bare Bones pump was showcased at this year’s World of Concrete in Las Vegas and received an overwhelming amount of attention. At times, crowds of tradeshow attendees actually lined up to take pictures.

The pump features many custom alterations like exterior temperature sensors, upgraded tires, heated wash out system, Arctic Fox hydraulic heater, and a light indicator system in the hopper for the PTO. For the finishing touches Art include a back up camera system, tinted windows, and custom light bar.

The Bare Bones pump is a true headturner, sure to garner a lot of attention and open doors for this new company. Art’s dedication to his trade and the pride he takes in his work, will ensure a long list of happy clientelle and his success for the future.
