Curb Roller Benefits
General Description and
The Curb Roller is a pipe with the curb
shape on one end that spins in the opposite direction it
is pulled. It is powered by a motor through hydraulic
lines and when pulled over the surface between guide
rails containing the concrete, the roller screeds off
the surplus concrete and evens the surface. The
continuous rotation compacts the concrete yet brings
"fat" up to the surface to facilitate the finishing
One person usually controls the Curb Roller from the
offset adjustment on the handle. However, two people can
operate it with the handle in the 90 degree position.
The Roller Screed can be used on curb and gutter up to
30" wide. It can be operated on forms as light as ½"
masonite or metal forms 2 ½" wide. A combination of form
thickness can be used because the Curb Roller guide runs
on the inside of the forms. The only forming requirement
is that metal or wood stakes holding the forms in place
must be at or below the form height so that the Curb
Roller can run on top of the forms without obstruction.
The Curb Roller is not designed to replace curb & gutter
slip form machines. These large machines work best on
large developments and streets. However, the Curb Roller
can be used to complement the large machines by being
utilized with the same curb pattern and doing the hard
to reach places and tight radius curbs. If you own a
large machine, a Curb Roller is a "must have" in some
Most people power the hydraulics of the Curb Roller from
their skid loader. Any hydraulic power source is
acceptable, including excavators, wheel loaders, power
packs, or backhoes.
Following is a comparison of the Curb Roller with other
methods of concrete forming:
- Curb forms require critical timing to
strip the forms and finish the face. The
contractor is limited to the amount of curb
that can be poured and requires a great deal
- Curb forms are expensive and require a
lot of labor to install, strip, & clean.
- Curb forms still require extensive
touchups on radius pours. The more you work
with touchups the better the chance for wavy
- Curb forms take a lot of storage space.
- One finisher can continually touch up
and broom the surface. The contractor is not
limited to the size of the pour.
- The Curb Roller costs less than a set of
forms and will last a lifetime.
- The Curb Roller makes perfect radius
curbs every time.
- The Curb Roller is a small compact
machine that takes minimal space.
Curb & Gutter Slip Forms
- Electronics and sensors are a
- Slip forms are not available for tight
situations such as uneven ground, steep
inclines, and tight radius curbs.
- Slip forms require extensive maintenance
- Transporting the slip form machine is a
- There are no electronics or sensors to
- The Curb Roller can do all of these
- The Curb Roller only contains 2 grease
- The Curb Roller fits inside the truck
bed of any truck for easy transportation.
Hand Held Mule
- The mule requires two passes.
- When using the mule, water is sprayed on
the surface to make enough "fat."
- Mules require an experienced operator.
- After the mule has done its job, hand
forming and troweling is still required.
- The Curb Roller requires only one pass.
- Spraying water on top of the concrete is
never needed. The Curb Roller works up
enough "fat" on a single pass to comfortably
finish the surface and broom.
- ANYONE can run a Curb Roller.
- Little to no hand forming is needed
after the Curb Roller is used
- Hand forming requires experienced curb
- The quantity of curb that can be poured
is limited. Workers often experience fatigue
- Radius curbs are difficult to hand form.
- With the Curb Roller, basic concrete
knowledge is the only experience needed to
make perfect curbs.
- The amount of curb that can be poured is
not limited by worker fatigue, as the
process is simple and much less labor
- The Curb Roller loves radius pours.
