SlipSmart Control Solution

The upgraded control system brings a number of improvements:
• Cross-slope controls are smoother, more responsive, and intuitive
• Auto-calibration for the radius steer sensor
• Simplified integration with Topcon, Leica, and Trimble 3-D control systems
• Fine scaling for speed controls
• Standardized display
• Icons for languages other than English

Control Panel Upgrades

We’ve kept much of the control panel the same so the 5700-D will feel familiar while including these improvements:
• “All up” jog switch. With a single switch that raises or lowers all crawler posts simultaneously
• Master vibrator scale knob. In addition to individual vibrator control knobs, the new master control increases or decreases hydraulic flow to all vibrators at once allowing the operator to keep individual vibrators higher or lower relative to each other
• Multiple individual engine gauges are replaced by a single display
• Weather proof switches
• Trimmer “on” light
• Descriptive etched wire labels matching machine schematics
• Cold air dam between engine and console to better regulate control panel temperature and increase operator comfort
• Lightweight aluminum console lid replaces heavy steel lid
• Cupholder

Additional Improvements from Previous Models

• High-pressure water system uses a new pump that can be left “on” without system wear. On-demand high-pressure water will be activated by the wand’s handle.
• New canopy with an overhead lamp available in addition to existing bimini and umbrella choices.
• New door latch style and new doors added to each end of the toolbox. Engine door double latches combined into a single, lower latch
• Auger Conveyor pivot is easier to rotate and the hopper features shovel holders on both sides
• Improved rigidity in mold offset
• Improved low-pressure water system with new pump
• Barrier Mold Lift range increased to 48″ (1220mm)

Compact Design

The 5700-D’s compact design allows operators superior control in tight spots such as cul-de-sacs, islands and parking lot corners. The machine transports at legal width (8’6”/2.59m) and does not require a low-boy.


The operator has an excellent view of concrete as it exits the mold, allowing adjustments immediately to minimize handwork behind the machine. The operator also has good visibility of all activity around the machine.

Front Track Steering

To keep things simple, the 5700-D turns a tight radius by steering with the front track only, eliminating coordinating all three tracks together. However, all-crawler steering is available as an option.

Stringless Capable

All-crawler steering equipped machines are ready to work with Topcon, Leica, and Trimble 3-D systems.

Auger Conveyor

After years of building machines with conveyor belts and dealing with their inherent problems like ripping in the middle of a pour and the concrete splatter they cause, Power Curbers introduced the auger conveyor in 1994.

The direct drive, high torque auger:
• Moves volume concrete faster
• Keeps the machine cleaner
• Continues the mixing process of the concrete
• Holds a cubic yard (3/4m3) of concrete which is beneficial in radius and cul-de-sac work
• Conveys concrete regardless of the incline angle of the conveyor

The unique ability of the charge hopper to be positioned in front of the machine, allows a concrete truck to run directly in front of the machine enabling pouring in a single lane of traffic.

Hydraulic Adjustable Offset

The mold mount hydraulically raises, lowers, and side-shifts the mold quickly and easily. With 24” (610mm) of horizontal movement and 16” (406mm) vertical, the mold can be lowered into a trench for rehab curb or for pouring adjacent to existing pavement.

At catch basins, the machine never leaves the stringline and the mold can be positioned within inches of the obstacle, reducing labor-intensive tie-in work.


The stout 42” (1.07m) wide carbide-tooth trimmer handles the toughest of subgrade, minimizing dependence on the grading contractor. Ideally, the trimmer cuts 1-2” (25-50mm) of subgrade but is capable of trimming up to 6” (150mm) in extreme situations.

The trimmer also hydraulically side shifts 80” (2.03m) enabling the ability to trim for a 5’ (1.5m) radius or to move the trimmer under the machine and out of the way when not in use. With 16” (406mm) of hydraulic vertical movement, the trimmer can lift over catch basins and other obstacles.


Pour on the Left and Right Side

The standard setup of the 5700-D is for left side pouring. For highway projects where pouring with traffic is required, the dual side pouring option is available.

Quick Connect Mold Mount

Our most popular optional feature, the patented Quick Connected mold mount, allows mold changes in as little as five minutes. For contractors that change molds often on job sites or go from one application to another, our Quick Connect makes the job simple.

Hydraulic Mold Offset Lock

After using the hydraulic adjustable offset to position the mold, the optional hydraulic mold offset lock enables the operator, at the flip of a switch, to lock the offset rigidly to the machine. Firmly locking the mold to the machine eliminates play in the mold which can affect the finished product. The standard is a manual mechanical lock.

Barrier Mold Lift

At the end of a day’s pour, the hydraulic barrier mold lift allows you to raise the mold up and off the steel cage. With 48″ (1220mm) of stroke in the mold lift and 36” (914mm) of post extension the 5700-D can clear tall steel cages, allowing you to quickly move the machine out of traffic for cleanup and until the next day’s pour.

All-Crawler Steering

In large applications like variable barrier or wall adjacent to an existing structure, our all-crawler steering option is an added benefit. In these large applications, coordinating the steering of all the crawlers can enhance the machine’s performance.

Variable Barrier Molds

Contractors pouring barrier on highways with super-elevations love the ability of the 5700-D to tackle these walls. The 5700-D pours with variable barrier molds typically weighing between 8,000-10,000 lbs. (3630-4535kg) and with up to 24” (610mm) of variability.

Parapet Sensor Mount

Like barrier, the 5700-D pours bridge parapet in a variety of configurations. To help set up for parapet pours, Power Curbers offers a parapet sensor mounting kit and weighted, free-standing stringline stations. Other optional accessories frequently used when pouring barrier include polyurethane track pads and weight pods.


Curb & Gutter

The 5700-D 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.

Radius Work

Pour islands as tight as 2’ (610mm). Our tight radius abilities make the 5700-D ideal for parking lot islands. Eliminating days of hand labor in large retail parking lots, the 5700-D can handle the narrowest of parking lot islands.

For work in areas with less extreme radii the optional hydraulic front grade sensor arm allows the front sensor to stay on line without manual adjustment.


The 5700-D pours sidewalk or monolithic sidewalk and curb up to 7’ wide (2.1m) in the offset position. Equipping the machine with trimmer extensions, allows the cut to match the sidewalk.

The 5700-D’s adjustable offset allows pouring behind the existing curb and over planter strips. Sidewalk mold options include detachable side plates for pouring adjacent to curb and for secondary sidewalk widths.

Cable Barrier / No- Mow Strips

In some highway applications as an alternative to concrete barrier, cable barrier is used. In these applications the 5700-D contributes in two ways. Using a custom mold in the traditional setup, the machine easily pours a “no-mow” concrete strip which reduces vegetation maintenance under barrier cable.

Before paving the no-mow strip, our post hole digger attachment allows quick and accurate bore holes for anchor posts. Because of the automatic steering and
leveling of a slipform machine, the holes are bored more accurately than with traditional auger equipment. Then, pour over the holes and insert the post sleeves
into the wet concrete.

Center Pour Paving

The 5700-D can be converted into a centerpour paver for wide golf cart and bicycle path paving. Using inserts, the right rear crawler post is moved to allow a paving mold to be installed for widths up to 10’ (3m).

Sectionalized with side plate assemblies and inserts at 4’ (1.5m), 2’ (1m), and 1’ (.5m) widths, the center pour kit gives the flexibility to pour between 4’ (1.5m) and 10’ (3m) wide in 1’ (.5m) increments. The hydraulically adjustable side plates allow the paving depth to vary up to 12” (305mm) thick.

Conversion from the standard offset paving setup requires dropping the auger conveyor and trimmer. Concrete is dumped directly into a hopper at the front of the mold and the spread auger on the paving package spreads the concrete across the hopper.

Ditch Liners

Frequently in mountainous areas, concrete-lined ditches are required for water control. V-ditch molds easily mount to the 5700-D similar to sidewalk molds. Because the trimmer cannot be used in V-ditch applications, preparation of the ditch profile in front of the machine is critical for good results and to avoid wasted concrete. The 5700-D pours ditch liners up to 7’ (2.2m) wide and 2’ (610mm) deep in the offset position.

Slotted Drain

One unique application for the 5700-D is for slotted drain pours. In this application, an inflated polymer-based tube is fed into the front of a custom mold during the pour. The mold is built with a slot from the gutter pan to the cavity created by the tube. After the concrete has cured, the tube is deflated and pulled from the curb leaving a hidden drainage channel.


The 5700-D is large and versatile enough to make large multi-pass canal projects possible, with custom engineering from the Power Curbers team. Our team can help design massive molds and long conveyors to meet the requirements of any project.

Stadium Risers

The 5700 series machines have poured concrete risers beginning with stadiums used in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Since that time, Power Curber machines have poured risers for baseball, football and soccer stadiums worldwide. Typically, custom molds for this application encompass two risers in one pass. Beginning at the bottom of the stadium, risers are poured and the machine works its way up, running on the risers poured the previous day.

Agricultural Applications

From the foundations of large poultry houses to livestock feeding troughs, to beds and flush lanes in cattle barns, the 5700-D adapts to the job with a variety of custom molds.

Tunnel Applications

Tunnel jobs include several perfect slipform opportunities for the 5700-D. Inverts with either a curved or flat profile and rail beds can be poured on the tunnel floor. Walls, walkways, and specialized profiles for housing electrical conduit or other utilities can be poured along the walls. Custom molds can be built to adjust in height and width to handle varying tunnel diameter.
