Texture and Curing Machines

“The texture cure machine is doing a great job. There’s no drift in the product. It’s nice and straight and will be a good ride. The city is delighted with the work and so am I.”

Nick Kempf, Metro Pavers, Iowa City, IA

Form Paver

“It’s an excellent machine. There’s no telling how many yards of concrete we’ve put through that machine. It’s been in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. We’ve had it in every configuration there is, paving from 15 to 32 feet wide. As far as the people servicing it, there’s none better than Power Pavers. We’ve solved every problem over the phone. I’ve been around these things half my life and they have, too. It puts out an excellent product, as long as you don’t try to make a bulldozer out of it. If you try to push too much material through it and it’s too dry, you’ll have a problem. Two and a half to 3-inch slump works great. As long as you run your vibrators and watch your travel speed, it will slick it down as pretty as a picture.”

Drew Bauer, Shamrock International, Louisville, KY

Form Paver

“Basically we do 12 and half-foot city streets, and the form paver is doing great. It pulls up the curb on the edge. Man, it works good. We have the automatic steering sensor and feel lucky to have it. We’ve also done taxis to the runway out at the airport and occasionally 17-foot paving”.

“Paving was a good move for us.”

Chris Cormier, Bessette Development, Lake Charles, LA

Slipform Pavers

“The slipform pavers are more efficient and speed up production. They work real well for city streets. These slipform pavers are very easy to move. Occasionally, we pave a couple of different jobs in one day and have to move from one site to another. Moving is not a problem. The SF-3000 lifts itself and you back right under the machine. These machines are user friendly.”

Kelly Cunningham, Cunningham Construction, Cedar Falls, IA

SF-3000

“The overall product is great. It’s pretty tolerant of slump changes. With drier or wetter mud, the product comes out pretty consistent. “Some sections are zero profilagraph. It doesn’t get any better than that. “We pave up to 33 feet wide. Overall, it’s a great machine.”

Randy Satter, Paving Superintendent, New Design Construction, Denver, CO

SF-3000

“It’s easy to move. You don’t have to break it down into several pieces to move. That saves time on set-up.”

Rick, New Design Construction, Denver, CO

 

SF-3000

“The slipform pavers cut out labor and are pretty simple to operate. We don’t have to have trucks and trailers to haul forms around, or a crane to load. There’s at least a 30 percent labor reduction. It’s not uncommon for us to pave in the morning, get done, load and go to another job in the afternoon. Transport is a big thing for us.”

“I like the hydraulic sensors. They’ve been trouble-free.”

Dave Streb, President, Streb Construction, Iowa City, IA

 

SF-2700

“I like the machine primarily because it’s not too big. I don’t need a big 4-track machine for development work. I have to be able to move it in and out quickly and not take a lot of time with set-up. Before I bought the slipform machine, I used to set forms. I had four form riders. Business is so competitive. You can’t do the volume you have to do with form pavers. It took two Cats and a semi to load a form paver. A whole day, by the time you tore it apart, moved dit and put it back together. With the slipform machine, I don’t have to do any disassembly or reassembly. Just load it up and move. You can drive it off, then drive it on grade and go. It takes 15 minutes to load. I don’t have time to load up a machine for 45 minutes. The smoothness is there. It puts out a good product. “The equipment is easy to train guys to operate and easy to maintain. I like the hydraulic sensors. They’re easy to understand.”

Nick Kempf, Metro Pavers, Iowa City, IA

Placer Spreader

“The placer spreader works very well and is easy to load. You back up and it will lift itself up and you drive u under it. We’re pleased with the results and the service. The ease of working on the equipment is one of the original reason I bought the equipment.”

Kelly Cunningham, Cunningham Construction, Cedar Falls, IA

Customer Testimonial:

We deal with all the heavy equipment manufacturers. I rate Power Pavers service 1 out of 100. Everything Power Pavers said came 100% true. They told us what we wanted to hear and then delivered.

John Motkaluk, Bayview Construction Ltd.,Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Customer Testimonial:

“We’re very pleased. They’re one of the more efficient vendors that we deal with. They get it out on time, however we order it. If they refer you to Tech Support, those guys are good about following up. I’ve been ordering for 14 years. It’s been a good experience.”

Charlie Dowling, APAC, Dothan, AL

Customer Testimonial:

“You can tell the Parts Department when you want it, and I can’t think of a single time it hasn’t been here. I can be ordering and they will say, ‘That’s not what you want’. They’re very knowledgeable. I’ve been ordering from Power Curbers for 12 years.”

Wayne Brett, Equipment Manager, Southern Curb, Inc., Winder, GA

“We fill up the auger and then slide the machine to transport mode to get to those tight spots.”

Chad Gordon, Pember Excavating, Menomonie, WI

5700-C

“The auger is a better way to deliver the mix to the hopper. I remember a lot of headaches with the belt.”

Lewis Robertson, Robertson Grading Inc., Evans, GA

5700-C

“The best thing is the auger. We save about 8 minutes on a truck. You multiply that out and realize we can do much more work in a day.”

Ron Lamontagne, Ciments Lavallee Ltd., Laval, QC

5700-C

“We had problems trimming and pouring at the same time with a competitive machine. The machine just didn’t have the hydraulic power. Now, (with the Power Curber), if it’s within 1, 2 or 3 inches (25mm, 50mm, 75mm), I don’t have to pre-trim. It saves fuel and time.”

William Irving, Virginia Site Concepts, Richmond, VA

5700-C

“With higher sub-grade, you don’t have to worry. That trimmer is going to trim right through it.”

Troy Reighter, Cougar Contracting Specialties, Ft. Myers, FL

“Offsetting the mold saves a lot of time with rehab.”

Tim Adleta, Adleta Construction, Lockland, OH

5700-C

“In the downtown area, there are a lot of obstacles. Every road is done differently. The versatility of the machine, especially the hydraulics (shifting vertically and horizontally) is what attracted me to the machine.”

John Sansalone, Domti Engineering & Construction, Bolton, Ontario

“That wash-down saves the operator a lot of time.”

Bruno Rocca, Cross Can Construction, Ltd., Woodbridge, Ontario

“Power Curbers does a good job redesigning the machine, while keeping in mind the contractor will be using existing molds.”

Jay Shorette, Dirigo Slipform, Hampden, ME

“The horsepower is an advantage with monolithic curb, gutter and sidewalk. With the other machine, we were maxed out. This one’s got the horsepower to do anything we want to do.”

Dan Hite, Doug McCoy Construction, Twin Falls, Idaho

5700-C

“It has get-up-and-go and we can get an extra 1,500 to 2,00 feet a day. Once everything is set up and going, I can run faster with the Power Curber than (the competition). When everything is going good, I can empty the truck out in 8 to 10 minutes and never stop the machine. That’s where we get our footage.”

Rodney Suggs, Deco, Rogers, Arkansas

“The engine’s quiet enough (that you can) talk on your cell phone while running the machine. You can’t keep everybody moving if you can’t communicate.”

Eddie Campbell, Campbell’s Concrete, Floyds Knob, IN

“The Cummins engine is easier to get parts and service. The Power Curber is as good as it gets. It’s just a better design.”

Chris Handy, Custom Curb and Edging, Arlington, TN

“It’s safer and a real big improvement. In some areas, you wouldn’t be able to take the machine in (without this). Loading from the front really impressed me.” (Referring to our swivel chute and single lane pour capability.)

Tony Oliveira, AJO Concrete Construction, Baltimore City, MD

“I can’t believe I ever owned a machine without this Quick Connect.”

Bryan Lusk, Wilson Brothers Construction, Honea Path, SC

“The Quick Connect has really been a time saver.”

E.B. Webb, S.T. Wooten, Wilson, NC

“We can change the mold on the Power Curber quickly. (The competitor’s) machine took two men about two hours to set up for a different pour.”

Andy Foster, APAC, Asheville, NC

5700-C

“Whoever came up with the Quick Connect is a genius. It’s so easy. I wouldn’t buy a machine without the Quick Connect, we change the mold out in 5 minutes, it’s such a bummer changing molds the old way: Everybody is waiting on you.”

Ernie Meritt, Concrete Express, Denver, CO

“Before, it took two men, plus me, to do a transition from holding curb to spilling. One had to adjust each sensor and another man was dialing to change the pitch on the machine. The micro automatically recalibrates the sensor. Now, I can do it alone from the operator’s platform.”

Bryan Lusk, Wilson Brothers Construction, Honea Path, SC
