Thin shell concrete formwork is just one uses Mike has found for the stucco sprayer. He also uses the sprayer for vertical carved concrete and spraying pre-mixed GFRC. His creations have been inside and on the cover of Concrete Decor magazine and also achieved first place awards for national counter top competitions. Mike has accepted commissions around the world and has a great portfolio that is worth seeing. It is impressive.

Mike describes his Stucco Sprayer as a “mini-shotcrete pump without the delivery lines.” He uses it as an extra tool on large jobs to back up line-pump operation.
