A Kenworth T880 concrete pump truck, donated for sale at the recent Concrete Industry Management (CIM) annual auction at World of Concrete, produced a $540,000 contribution to the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program. Kenworth, Alliance Concrete Pumps, and NorCal Kenworth combined on the donation.
The Kenworth T880 concrete pump truck was purchased by J.K. Hammack, a residential concrete pumping company based in Celeste, Texas. The purchase price for the T880 concrete pump package exceeded market value by $105,000.
The donated Kenworth T880 features a Paccar MX-13 engine rated at 455-hp and 1,650 lb.-ft. of torque with a truck-mounted Alliance Concrete Pumps JXLZ 38-meter boom pump.
The $540,000 donation will support the CIM program through scholarships for students pursuing a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management at Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Texas State University, California State University – Chico, and South Dakota State University.
