Originally designed for curb and gutter work, the 5700-C now performs in many applications including sidewalks, barrier walls and pathways up to 3.5m wide. In spite of the variety of applications, the basic machine remains the same while only a mold or form changes from job to job.
At 12 tons, the 5700-C now pours step barrier, variable barrier, and U-shaped ditches. Experienced contractors can pour barrier walls up to 1.5m high.
The 5700-C’s hydraulically controlled mold offset allows flexibility for the machine operator on the jobsite. Hydraulic mold sideshift and vertical adjustment allows the operator to pour below grade, avoid concrete drains, and to lift off steel at the end of a run.
For contractors involved in parking lot work, the 5700-C turns a radius of less than one metre. This tight radius steering allows contractors to pour parking lot islands, eliminating expensive handwork.
Additional recent enhancements include a right-hand pour option in addition to the traditional left hand set-up. Contractors faced with projects that force them to pour with the flow of traffic love the ability to go from left to right hand pouring. Converting the machine from left to right side pour, is simple, and only takes a few hours.
The auger conveyor holds much more concrete (nearly one cubic metre) than a belt, and mixes concrete better, providing a better finish through the mold, the company states. With its enclosed cover, the auger system keeps the machine cleaner, without concrete splatter building up on hydraulic lines and pumps.
Power Curbers’ Smart Amp controls give the machine the sophistication of digitally networked systems with the ease and simplicity of analog controls. Inexperienced operators can easily be trained on this system.
Standard equipment on the Power Curber 5700-C includes a 130-hp Cummins engine, three Berco crawlers, two Wyco vibrators, four sensors, and one curb and gutter mold built to specifications.
