Slipforming equipment from Power Curbers focuses on versatility and adaptibility
Power Curbers and its sister company Power Pavers exhibited the adaptable 5700-C and SF-1700 models at bauma, slipformers that have been both designed to provide the customer with a high degree of versatility.
The 5700-C seen at the show is a well-proven, compact slipformer able to handle a wide array of barrier wall applications. Meanwhile the SF-1700 from Power Pavers is a multi-purpose machine that can be used for barrier wall work and also for pedestrian ways as well as smaller road paving jobs.
This versatility is a focus for Power Curbers and also for the Power Pavers range. Dyke Messinger, president and CEO of Power Curbers said, “The customer today wants a machine that can do multiple applications, not just kerb or not just barrier. They want a machine that can pave. Our multi-purpose machine can pave up to 4m wide and it can do barrier up to 2m high.”
Messinger explained that this versatility and adaptability helps ensure that a machine achieves greater utilisation and providing a better return on investment for the owner, with a faster payback time.
The company is also keen to ensure its machines can work with the latest 3D paving controls and introduced the Leica Geosystems package as an option some time ago. Following trials carried out at the Power Curbers plant in North Carolina, the company also offered the Topcon 3D system and customers now have the option of either package on both the Power Curbers and Power Pavers slipformers.
