Compact design

The 5700-C’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.

Front track steering

The 5700-C 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.

Hydraulic adjustable offset

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.

Auger conveyor

The mold mount on the 5700-C 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.

Smart Amp machine controls

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.


Dual side pouring

The 5700-C can be converted from the standard left-side pouring position to be able to pour on the right side. This can be helpful on a highway project if the job requires you to pour with the traffic. Changeover from left to right (or back) takes about 3 – 4 hours.

Barrier mold lift

The hydraulic barrier mold lift allows you to raise the mold up and off a steel cage. With 24” (610 mm) of vertical adjustment in the lift and 36” (914 mm) of vertical post extension in the 5700-C, you can clear tall rebar cages and quickly move the machine off the line to move to a different part of the job or to wash up for the day.

Network machine controls

The fully networked digital control option on the 5700-C gives you the added benefits of an advanced graphic display and auto-slope control for transitioning from in-flow to out-flow. The networked controller is also required for pouring with a stringless machine control system.

Quick Connect mold mounting

The Quick Connect mold mount allows you to change molds in a matter of minutes. Four hydraulically activated hooks release one mold and grab the next with little manual work. For contractors changing molds often on jobsites or going from one application to another in the same day, the Quick Connect makes mold changes quick and easy. The QC also automatically aligns the mold and locks it securely in place.

Hydraulic mold offset lock

If you’re using the hydraulically adjustable offset to position your mold for rehab work or to avoid obstructions like catch basins, the offset lock enables you to lock the offset in place. Firmly locking the mold in place eliminates play in the mold, which can affect the finished product.

All-crawler steering

All-crawler steering on the 5700-C can be beneficial when pouring large barrier wall or wall adjacent to an existing structure. It is also required for pouring with a stringless machine control system.

Parapet sensor mount

The parapet sensor mount kit is useful when pouring side parapet on bridges. It includes the parts needed to move the sensors from the left side of the machine to underneath the machine, for conditions where a standard stringline setup isn’t feasible, such as along the side of a bridge.

Polyurethane track pads

Poly pads are especially useful in rehab work or when the job requires that the machine run on top of existing pavement.

MAX package

The 5700-C-MAX offers upgrades to the capabilities of the standard 5700-C, including larger crawlers, all-crawler steering, and a secondary mounting location for the right rear post. The MAX Package also includes low-speed crawler torque hubs and three extra vibrator circuits, for a total of nine. The 5700-C-MAX can be used to pour large barrier up to 8’ (2.5 m) high, paving up to 12’ (3.65 m) wide, and other large profile applications.

Post-hole digger

The post-hole digger attachment for the 5700-C can be used in the installation of cable barrier with “no-mow” concrete strips.


Curb & gutter

The 5700-C can handle any curb application with ease. Stand-up curb, also known as header curb or ribbon curb, is common for parking lot islands. Curb & gutter is often used in residential jobs, such as subdivisions. Mold options, such as blockouts and driveway knives, can be added to make your curb jobs even easier.

Tight radius

With the 5700-C, you can pour a radius as tight as 2’ (610 mm), making it ideal for parking lot islands. You can eliminate days of hand labor in large retail parking lots by learning to pour even the narrowest of islands with your machine.


The 5700-C can pour sidewalk or monolithic sidewalk with curb up to 7’ (2.1 m) wide in the offset position. By equipping the machine with optional trimmer extensions, you can trim the width needed to clear the way for a sidewalk pour. The adjustable offset allows you to pour sidewalk behind existing curb or over planter strips. Optional detachable side plates allow for pouring sidewalk adjacent to existing curb.

Barrier/parapet/variable barrier

Variable barrier molds can have up to 24” (610 mm) of variability to help on barrier jobs where the area between lanes is not even on both sides.

Cable barrier / no-mow strips

On some highways, cable barrier is used as an alternative to concrete barrier wall. In these situations, the 5700-C can be used to pour a “no-mow” strip to reduce vegetation maintenance under cable-style barriers. Before paving the no-mow strip, the optional post-hole digger attachment allows you to quickly and accurately bore holes for cable barrier anchor posts. Then, the concrete strip can be poured over the holes and the post sleeves inserted into the wet concrete.

Slot drain

Slotted drains can be used to help drain water from roadways. In this unique application, an inflated polymer-based tube is fed into the front of a slot drain mold, custom-built with a slot from the gutter pan to the cavity created by the tube. The concrete is slipformed around the tube and allowed to cure. The tube is then deflated and pulled from the concrete, leaving a hidden drainage channel.

Center pour

The 5700-C can be used as a center-pour paver for golf cart or bicycle path paving. Using inserts, the right rear crawler post is extended to allow a paving mold to be installed under the machine to pour widths up to 10’ (3 m). Hydraulically adjustable side plates allow the paving depth to vary up to 12” (305 mm) thick.


Concrete-lined ditches can be used for water control and drainage. V-ditches and U-ditches can be poured with the 5700-C, saving time and labor. Because the trimmer cannot be used in most ditch applications, preparation of the grade and profile in front of the machine is critical for good results and to avoid wasted concrete. The 5700-C can pour ditches up to 7’ (2.2 m) wide and 2’ (610 mm” deep in the offset position.


The size and versatility of the 5700-C makes large multi-pass canal projects possible. Massive molds and long conveyors can be specifically designed to meet the requirements of even the most complex canal projects.


The 5700 series of machines have been used to pour concrete stadium risers, including stadiums used for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Typically, custom molds encompass two risers in one pass. Beginning at the bottom of the stadium, the risers are poured and the machine works its way up, running on the risers poured the previous day. This method has been used to pour risers for baseball, football, and soccer stadiums around the world.


From livestock feed troughs to poultry house foundations, the 5700-C can be used on a variety of agricultural applications. Flush lanes in cattle barns make the entire operation more efficient.


Tunnel jobs offer the perfect opportunity to use a 5700-C, such as for rail beds, walls, and walkways. Unique profiles such as utility channels can be poured along the walls. Tunnel molds often need to be built to be adjustable in height and width to handle variances in the tunnel structure.

High-speed rail

The 5700-C can be used in rail projects for slipforming utility channels for the installation of electrical lines and other utilities.


The 5700-C can be used in roller-compacted concrete (RCC) dam construction. The sides of each layer of the dam are slipformed with the 5700-C, and then the RCC is installed in between. As each layer cures, the machine is moved on top to pour the next layer.
