Concrete pump?

Hi, I will soon need to work on the concrete slab for my garage and I plan to bring in a concrete pump. I would like to combine this with a much smaller job, a slab for a small cabin up on the hill at about 400ft from the garage. Do you have any idea if this is going to be feasible with a "regular" concrete pump or I need to find another way?

I think you'll probably be paying quite a bit more for the job further away unless it is accessible by road for the pumper. Though they may be able to pump that far (IDK) they are going to charge a lot more for the setup I would think.

the higher cost is because of the longer set of pipes they need to setup or because they need to come with a completely different pump that is much bigger? as the job uphill is small, I can live with a lower flow rate.

No expert on that...you'll have to wait for a Pro to weigh in. I don't imagine the equipment would be that much different...but there would be a lot more labor connecting and disconnecting all the sections of pipe they would need. Thats my reasoning anyway.
