concrete has fallen from the top hopper, the door on the lower hopper is opened to allow the concrete to fall to the bottom cylinder. A tamping rod can be used to force especially cohesive concretes through the hoppers. The excess concrete is carefully struck off the top of the cylinder and the mass of the concrete in the cylinder is recorded.
