POWER CURBERS 5700B 2000 Asphalt / Pavers / Concrete Equipment, ready for work
The 5700-B is the #1 selling curb & gutter machine in the world and is the latest in the highly successful 5700 series. Its compact size and versatility allow contractors to reach new levels of productivity. The 5700-B can get in and out of tight spots quickly, making radius work and parking lot jobs much easier.In addition to curb and gutter work, the 5700-B can handle highway barrier, sidewalk, irrigation ditches, and much more. Customers tell us they triple a normal day’s production with less work. The 5700-B truly is a one-machine solution.
The 5700-B’s compact size allows operators to get in and out of tight spots like parking lot corners, island, and cul-de-sacs. The machine transports at legal width (8’ 6” / 2.59 m) and does not require a low-boy trailer.
The 5700-B keeps things simple in turning a tight radius by steering the front track only, eliminating the complication of steering all three tracks together. However, all-crawler steering can be helpful in other applications and is available as an option.
The direct drive, high torque auger conveyor moves large volumes of concrete faster and can hold a cubic yard (0.76 m3) of concrete, beneficial in radius and cul-de-sac work. The auger also helps keep your concrete mixed while pouring and keeps the machine cleaner. It moves the concrete faster and will convey concrete regardless of the include angle of the conveyor. The charge hopper can be positioned in front of the machine, allowing a concrete truck to run in front of the machine and enabling you to pour in a single lane of traffic.
The mold mount on the 5700-B can move hydraulically, giving you the ability to raise, lower, and side-shift your mold quickly and easily on the job. With 24” (610 mm) of horizontal movement and 16” (406 mm) of vertical shift, the mold can be lowered into a trench for rehab curb or for pouring adjacent to existing pavement. The offset also gives you greater versatility when setting up on jobsites that have obstructions like catch basins, manhole covers, and uneven subgrade.
The 42” (1.07 m) wide carbide-tooth trimmer handles the toughest of subgrade, minimizing your dependence on the grading contractor. Ideally, you wouldn’t need to trim more than 1-2” (25-50 mm) of subgrade, but the trimmer is capable of trimming up at 6” (150 mm) in extreme situations.
The trimmer can also be hydraulically side-shifted 80” (2.03 m) giving you the ability to trim for a 5’ (1.5 m) radius or to move the trimmer under the machine and out of the way when not in use. The trimmer also has 16” (406 mm) of vertical adjustment, allowing you to lift it over obstacles on the job.
The SmartAmp (TM) control system offers the operator more accuracy and greater feel when setting sensitivity and can perform self-diagnostics. The system will automatically shut off the sensors if they leave the stringline and has an easy-to-read digital display.
